About Me

My photo

Saffron Ward

Creative Designer
Open to the following roles:
Contract - Freelance
Part Time - Full Time

I've always been passionate about the creative arts & tried to turn my hand to as many different projects & sectors as I can.

I believe all experience is good experience & having such a wide knowledge of many areas makes me easily adaptable to any project. I have plenty of experience with design, from branding, graphic & print design to visual merchandising & interior design.

I currently work on PC's, but have worked on Mac's in the past. I have several years' experience in branding & marketing, from company stationary to using blogs & social networking. I also have experience in event and exhibition stand design, licensed products & merchandising. I often get a lot of work through word of mouth & my ever growing portfolio.

This faster than we ever expected with lots of expertise, patience and clear guidance where needed. Working in the entertainment industry since decades, we know it's hard to find a creative person with outstanding skills, intuition and also a very productive workflow. That's why we'll definitely hire Saffron again"
