Hey Erin! Tell us a bit about you?

I am a young and sociable person with a creative and bubbly personality, living in the beautiful Yarra Valley. I love all things design! Now a graphic designer, I also work as a Sales and Marketing Administrator and a Photographer in my spare time.

Frankie’s - Corporate Identity & Packaging Design

What or who inspired you to be a designer?

I have always loved being creative. Photography, decorating and design have been passions of mine from a young age. As a kid I used to carry my camera around everywhere with me, was always redecorating different areas and had the job for designing all the posters/flyers for school events. This became something that I always wanted to pursue through my life.

I currently work full time as a Sales and Marketing Administrator which means I get to manage the Graphic Design, Socials and different Marketing Material for two sister companies. All the fun stuff!

Java Love - Logo & Packaging Design

What is your favourite part of the design process?

My favourite part is the start of the process, where you get to research, create mood boards, draw out all your ideas and then finally find something that you love!

You were really into all sorts of design disciplines at TGDS, branding, campaigning and even packaging.
Have you a fav?

My favourite sections were hands down the branding identities and packaging modules – as you can see through my portfolio!

Trent Rolf - Campaign Design

Tell us anything you would like to about your featured works.

I love my personal identity I did for Inke Studio – I would love to open up a graphic design / photography studio one day!

I also loved designing the identity for Intwine, a really fun company to design for… this is the kind of work I hope to do one day.

What did you love most about studying design?

I love how design allows you to express yourself and do something that I love. Design challenges you but at the same time is a lot of fun and can take you places you never thought of.

What’s your dream design job?
Don’t hold back!

I would love to own my own creative design agency where I could freelance work with fun companies where I could combine my love for graphic design, interior decorating and photography all in one.

What would you say to someone about to embark on their own journey in design?

Just have fun. Do what you love and then you will never work a day, a quote that I love! Try to work with topics you enjoy and stay true to yourself and then you will get the motivation to keep going… even when it seems impossible!
