the creativity behind creative shell
hello! I'm shelley...
I am a graphic designer & photographer based in the Mid North Coast of NSW - Forster. I have a degree in Visual Communication Design and I specialise in branding and design for small businesses. My focus is to produce high-quality logos & brands and I aim to help my clients grow their business with design & imagery that is eye-cratching, memorable and relevant for their target market.
I enjoy working with a variety of clients - no job is too small. Whether you are a long established business or are just getting started, I would love to work with you!
what makes me different?
With a degree & 13 years of experience - I have developed skills in many different aspacts of design. I have worked in the promotional design industry, the printing industy, wedding & event industry - all whilst freelancing on the side.
My key strength is my uniqueness, I offer multiple creative services within the one business. I can design branding, I can print stationery, I can take portraits, product photos, aerials and combine it all together to create a website. There is no need to find multiple businesses.
I not only have design skills but pre-press & printing skills, I have 10 years experience in the printing industry (I work full time at a local printer). I can prepare and print my own designs & can recommend the perfect paper & finishes for every job.
I am a MidCoast Business Award Winner, winning the 2021-2022 'Excellence in Professional Services' award.
I'm a passionate creative who can't sit still. When I'm not behind a computer, camera or an easel you'll find me seeking adventure... bushwalking, waterfall chasing, itinerary planning or at the beach with my pet Sun Conure
I'm a lover of all things colour, Hawaii is my second home, I love 'Dad jokes', I'm a serial Pokemon Go player and I'm a Sagittarius.
