Jodie Smith

Graphic Designer / Print Designer

introduction

Graphic design is my passion and personal expression. It is fulfilling and enriching. It makes me appreciate all the little things that people put the effort into, for example typography and layout. I love wondering around art galleries and finding new art work, as it inspires and excites me. Graphic design lets me express my creativity in a way others can visually understand and emphases.

What's Happening

Employment

Roamers Catering

Location:

Essex

Since late last year I have been working with a catering company based in Chelmsford Essex to help re-brand them. Since the beginning I have created a new logo of an improved version of their previous one. We felt that we wanted to keep the originality and meaning behind the design but give it a fresh and exciting look. Since then I have created other peices of work for them such as: corporate identity material (business cards, letterheads, compliment slips , etc.), wedding brochures, menus and formal brochures.
