Welcome to the weird & wonderful
World of Mrs E Creative!
The evolution of Mrs E Creative Services.
Up until being made redundant in May 2014 I worked full time in the design industry (apart from an 8 year break where I worked for an opticians – which is a whole nuvver story), firstly in pre-press, as an artworker at a printers and finally for a design studio that shall remain nameless for legal reasons. Fast forward through the job centre, 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 design & marketing work, growing the balls to register freelance and evolving into Mrs E Creative Services.
My first paying client was Whistling Cat Books (an independent local author and publisher), we worked together to increase traffic to the website using social media and local events and to ultimately increase book sales. I also took on a long-term, part-time marketing assistant contract to keep me from going crazy on my own at home. I now offer several local businesses help with design & marketing (traditional & digital) and have a growing portfolio of WordPress websites.
