I live for making things! Be it out of paper, bookcloth or wood. A physical or tactile element to a project is something I always try and incorporate into my outcomes.
Love taking photos particularly of my home back in North Wales and lots of pictures of my dog Ruby the cutest dog in the world! .
I love collecting unique stationary, one of my favourite possessions is my Teflon bone folder I use to make handmade books and boxes.
After being introduced to the world of Digital publishing in my second year of university and fell in love with the process. I particularly enjoy testing the limits of interactive design creating something the user will love.
I have great admiration for independent design magazines such a ‘Printed Pages’, ‘Intern magazine’ and the ‘Eighty-Eight’.
I love to create my own patterns. Repeating patterns and wallpaper design has been something I have grown up with and a subject I have always been interested in.
I adore the screen-printed like quality the risograph gives to a design and I love testing what the machine can do.
My real Passion and strength lies in publishing and layout design, working out how pages fold and what spreads go where is something I flourish on.
I'm Fleur a Graphic Designer originating from Wales, with a passion for all things printed!
I hope you have liked taking a look around my site, this is the type of work I love to do! Making, designing and combining print with digital elements are all things I am especially passionate about.
The craft and making of work is particularly important to me, the physicality of testing how a box will open or how paper will fold is something I have always found fascinating, this ethos can be carried through to my digital work as well.
My strengths are publications & editorial design, identities and digital publishing. I feel strong concepts with elegant solutions are vital in creating beautiful work.
