You’ve probably realised by now, I’m Ali, a freelance graphic designer and illustrator, or simply, pretty picture maker.

From agency life in Leeds to Birmingham and beyond, I have developed my illustrative skills most and enjoy bringing characters to life in animations. I studied MA Advertising and Design at the University of Leeds in 2008, and a year later set off on an adventure in the creative industry which has led me to you today. Design tells a story, and words do too, so it helps that I previously studied BA English Language and Literature and like to conjure a phrase or two.

I have over 10 years’ experience and work with companies and projects of all sizes. And guess what, it’s just me. You’ve got my full attention (apart from when the doggo is jumping at my desk or has dropped one).

I can’t say there’s a set process every day for each project. Your brand and requirements will be unique. I will work with you to strengthen your business with visual solutions that are equally unique.

I love what I do and want you to love what I do, so if you’ve got a project in mind, then let’s grab a cuppa. Or we can just grab a cuppa and geek out over design-nerdery and films. It would be great to chat and together create ideas that get people talking. From advertising and design to brand identity, illustration, animation and more, let’s do this.

If you’re not quite ready to pick up the phone or ping an email, then enjoy feasting your eyes on my portfolio.
