The evolution of Mrs E Creative Services

Up until May 2014 I worked for a design studio (that shall remain nameless for legal reasons) which specialised in publishing and in particular educational publishing. In fact, by some sheer fluke, the majority of my early design career (apart from an 8 year break where I worked for an opticians – a whole nuvver story) has been in and around the publishing industry.

I love reading. I love books. I love design. You’d think I would have been deliriously happy, end of story. Sadly not, in nearly twenty years (I know I don’t look old enough) I have come to the conclusion that working for large companies and corporations just was not the right fit for me.

… Fast forward through a redundancy, a big knee operation, a summer on crutches, some serious weight gain and some pretty bad times …

After initially offering my services for free to friends, a chance encounter with an old client, an old friend and a temp agency led to me slowly but steadily picking up some work, growing the balls to register freelance and evolving into Mrs E Creative Services. My first paying client was Whistling Cat Books (a lovely lady and independent local author and publisher) we worked together to increase traffic to the website using social media and local events and to ultimately increase sales. I also took on a long-term, part-time contract to keep me from going crazy on my own at home. I now offer small businesses help with marketing and design (traditional & digital) and have a nice little gang of repeat customers.

What I do (mum)

I have a very strong print background in my ’employed’ career, I first started in reprographics and pre-press before moving to artworking, design and project management. I’ve also always had a personal interest in new tech and over the last few years (with the rise of social media) have found I seem to have a knack of engaging an audience and discovering what works in terms of marketing.
