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 knew on the market at that time) I fell in love with the possibilities and found myself designing magazines and then a few years later books. My career went from strength to strength managing the pressures of producing monthly magazines to a different type of pressure producing numerous travel titles and gift books for the AA Publishing House. These years were wonderful but I had to start thinking about family life and started my own business when my eldest daughter was 2. I have since had another gorgeous daughter and I love my life as a freelancer being able to do the job I love and look after my lovely family at the same time.
I offer a creative graphic design service ranging from book design, typesetting and page layout to marketing material and ebooks. 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've been in the publishing industry for 16 years. I work with a range of clients in the UK and internationally on projects ranging from marketing products to complete bespoke books and promotional material.
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.
I am fully set up on my beloved Imac, using the latest Adobe CC products . Indesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Muse and Microsoft products.
