Frontend Drupal developer with a penchant for arts & crafts. A floral geek some might say!
In a previous life I was mostly a graphic designer, I still like a good typeface and playing about now and again. Plus friends seem to be getting married left, right and centre and they all need stationery.
I'm going to try and live a more handmade life - like I've wanted to for a long while now. So to make the most of my photoshop subscription I've designed a logo which could be used on the things we've made so I can package them up and give handmade hampers for gifts.
Designing for friends and using the right tools for the job
I do the occasional print project for friends which means I need Illustrator and InDesign, this wasn't a problem when I was working in the print world, I had a nice shiny valid copy of Creative Suite 2... TWO!
Last year Simon and I had to move into one of the houses his parents rent out, and although it isn't perfect living arrangements it does have one massive plus side... 3 apple trees and two pear trees! We harvested all the apples we could.
