Hi I'm Linda the owner of 'Designer mate' and have a wealth of graphic design and technical illustration experience and recently trained in web design achieving 100% in all course areas. As you can see from the portfolios I have a great range of projects under my belt with an excellent spread of skills on offer.

What I can bring to your business is a wealth of experience from working in various design sectors. A quick run down of my past employment is 7 years as senior designer at a major publisher, 4 years with a design and reprographics studio as a packaging artworker and repro specialist. 1 year as a studio manager with a design agency, 4 years with an education research organisation as a marketing designer and 4 years as a technical illustrator with a university, to name but a few.

In the office I use a PC with the following software but have also worked extensively using Mac computers over the years:

as well as the usual Bridge, Acrobat , Contribute and Microsoft Office etc.

Designer Mate has also used Quarkxpress, Pagemaker, Artpro, Freehand and pre-press engraving software.

I test websites using the Safari browser on the Mac, as well as testing on Internet explorer and Firefox on the PC.

During my work life I have picked up skills in lithographic, flexographic and gravure print production, have used a large drum scanner, gained retouching skills and have produced online content, so if you need the artwork in a particular way I can do it.

If you would like to see anymore please use the links below or get in touch and we can work from there.
