Black Bee Creative offers graphic design, marketing campaigns and illustration for people with soul: organisations, ethical companies and all sorts of nice people who are working to make a positive difference to the world.
I help people communicate clearly through branding and strategic marketing campaigns, ensuring they are conversing effectively with their target market, and keeping it interesting.
No one knows your business better than you do, so instead of telling you what you need, I believe it’s better to work together. I can help you to create simple messages and put them across in interesting ways that are authentic to you. I can do all the hard work and get items printed and delivered for you too.
How it all began…
When I graduated from Croydon College of Art and Design in 1999 I had a dream of using my skills to save the world by designing for Greenpeace or Oxfam. However, day-to-day life got in the way and I realised I would have to put in some hard work before it could happen for me. Over the years I have gained experience at some wonderful design studios and have completed projects for local and multinational clients, in diverse sectors, such as property, education, health, retail, pensions and local Government.
Following a move to Barnsley, the birth of my daughter and subsequent redundancy, I started Black Bee Creative so that I could have the life/work balance that I craved. Working from my home studio I am revisiting my dream of making the world a better place, while also opening up my creative options to bring illustration, a bit of copy editing and more recently my own networking group to help other businesses in to the mix. Black Bee Creative is no longer just a business, it has become a whirling ball of creative joy, that has a life of it’s own. I am excited to see what opportunities it brings my way!
