Hi, I'm Tamasin, a Senior Graphic Designer / Art Director based in Auckland, New Zealand. I am an all-rounder, with many years experience in print and digital. I am an 'ideas' person, and enjoy coming up with a strong concept for a project before executing it through design. My ideal role would be a mix of Art Direction / Copywriting and hands-on design. I have also worked a lot in Packaging design, and really enjoy this niche area. I am experienced in presenting my work to clients, art directing photoshoots and overseeing Mac ops / Retouchers. I'm friendly, I don't have a big ego, and I enjoy working hard for companies with high standards. I never stop learning.
I'm best known for...
High quality of work, friendly personality and sense of humour.
