Just captured on camera: Papaver Patty’s Plum, with newly unfurled petals in all their exquisite beauty. I’ve never seen one looking as fresh before; they are so fleeting in their perfection, it makes them all the more sublime.
One of my clients, Carol Whitehead, came to my home office last week for an update on the ins and outs of using WordPress and some more insight on SEO. She just so happened to be looking after a relative’s Collies for a couple of weeks, so bought one of them, Flo, with her. After a quick walk round the local park, a tasty chew for Flo and tea and homemade cake for Carol and I, we got down to the refresher lesson. Carol was very pleased with the new tips she picked up in the tutorial and Flo was impeccably behaved too. ;)
Hello there, I’m Natalie Seal, a freelance graphic designer based near Tunbridge Wells, Kent. With 15 years freelance and previously as senior designer at a marketing & design agency, I’ve totted up plenty of experience in graphic design in one way or another. My goodness, how time flies!
But why Ginger & Fig?
Well, it’s not just because they are both versatile, taste delicious and bring something special to the table; they also rather handily reflect the fact that I have two different types of customer. Which one might you be?
Bold and Brilliant Ginger
For marketing & creative agencies seeking hands-on help when the heat is on. I’m bookable to work in-house or from home, be it for a day or two or on a regular basis, keeping the seat warm and the mouse clicking for mid to senior weight designers and creative artworkers on leave, or when the workload is heavy. If you’d like to email me, I’ll happily send you my CV or can pop in for a chat.
Small and Perfectly Formed Fig
For small and local businesses looking for beautifully turned out communications. I offer a friendly and personal service; with flavour-filled design and marketing that’ll get you noticed. From a company logo, advert in a magazine or a new website and everything in-between. If you’d like to email a brief outline of your requirements, I’ll get back to you as soon as possible and we can take it from there.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy having a look around my little corner of the virtual cosmos…
