My name is Cath and I love the smell of a newly printed book.
Ever since my teen years at school I always knew I wanted to get into design. At the time I had no idea what... I forayed into screen printing which lead to a bit of clothes design and then into Interior decorating but when a kind colleague showed me how to use an Apple Mac computer (very new on the market at that time) I fell in love with the possibilities and found myself designing magazines and books and later onto all things print.
My varied career has spanned over two decades experiencing and becoming expert in many types of print types: from producing monthly magazines to producing numerous travel book series and gift books for Publishing Houses, then working for myself so I could raise my two little girls. Whist working for myself I expanded my print knowledge and a few years later joined a print house to manage their Studio and get creatively involved in all sorts of print types from exhibitions to stationery to branding.
Giving every client a personalised service no matter what the project. I make the production as seamless as possible whilst presenting imaginative solutions. I will work every step of the way with you to produce excellent results. I understand how important and all-consuming your ideas are and I am here to help you bring it all to life.
I work with a range of clients in the UK and internationally on projects ranging from marketing collateral, logo design, bespoke books, ebooks and promotional material. I will help you build a brand around your product to help you get it into the right market first time.
I care passionately about design, have an eye for detail and continually prioritise and multi-task to hit deadline. I am patient and understanding and am happy to give a helping hand to those who need it but work just as well with seasoned in house teams and agencies. And all with a smile.
I'm based in Bracknell, Berkshire near London and am always available for a chat about potential projects, so if you're looking for someone to bring your project to life, please feel free to contact me.
