Hey Jacqui. Tell us a bit about you?

I’m a Mum of 3 kids, I grew up in Noosa, Qld and moved to Melbourne 18 years ago to be with my now husband, marrying 10 years ago. I’m always active, love yoga, Pilates and walking, taking in the fresh air. I love love love the beach (I still ask my husband if he appreciates me living away from Noosa and in the city for him). I love my friends and having girls lunches.
I love date nights with my husband and I loooovvveeee more than anything in the world cuddling my 3 babies!

What are you up to in the design world at the moment?

I am freelancing. I have a variety of clients, connections still to the fashion world creating textile prints for young designers and working with the designers drawing up their fashion range line sheet. I have worked on branding and marketing collateral for a PR company. I also get a bit of work through my husband and brother who both work in property working on signage and brochures. I also get word-of-mouth jobs to work on logos and branding, which I really love.

What is your favourite part of the design process?

When the design starts to come together. Once I get on a roll, I get very excited. I may start a little overwhelmed with a blank page but once the ideas start flowing, I just don’t want to stop. I also love laying out the final design for the client and the presentation process.

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

I really enjoyed the packaging project which I came up with for the concept of Belly Balance probiotic drink. To take the idea from just a name right through to a 3D image was amazing. I’d never done a 3D image wrap before, it made a huge impact to the presentation.

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

Hmmm. I really love so many elements of design, as long as I’m designing I’m happy. Branding is very exciting because it’s the beginning of the whole process and so important to the client. It is also nerve racking too though because at this initial stage I don’t really know the client’s style, there’s a risk I could be on the completely wrong path. As I learnt learnt through TGDS the brief is key!
