Iā€™m Lizzie and I am a designer, illustrator and all round creative who was born and bred in Birmingham, UK. I have always had a love for all things design. From an early age of colouring in, to loving graphics and art at school to finally progressing to study BA Graphic Design at Nottingham Trent University. Upon leaving university, I started working at a greetings card company based in Corby, where I worked for 6 years gaining masses of commercial experience. I have always worked in the design industry, however I am now following my freelance dream...and back in my lovely hometown. My style is very versatile ā€“ I love anything from doodles to laser cuts, graphic to hand drawn and have a real passion for typography and surface pattern. I am constantly on the lookout for new trends and design inspiration ā€“ I just love design!
