Lemonface design were an incredible organisation to deal with. Responsive, articulate, organised. Rearrangements and quick changes were never a problem at all, also, wonderfully fantastic with the advice and ongoing support, especially of my outcomes, through social media and signage from small residential signs to very large billboards which were balanced and effective, dare I say quite stunning! Cannot wait to utilise their expertise and work with them again in the future.

We saw a post (actually we’ve seen lots of posts) on the subject. This one in particular struck a chord with us.

Deadlines - they're a real thing. Discuss.

Dealing with deadlines can fraught. Nobody likes to miss a deadline.

Deadlines are part and parcel in the life of a graphic designer. The materials we produce are often used to launch a brand, support a brand, enhance a brand. And these are usually (nearly always) date specific.

Behind the scenes – a typical day in the very untypical life of a graphic designer – ME!

So, I often get asked – ‘OMG your job sounds amazing’ But what do you all day? Well, let me try and tell you.
