I really love the work that I do, it’s been a life-long passion
It all started when I was 15 years old…..with a love of art and problem solving, I realised I wanted to be a graphic designer. Living in London, I was constantly bombarded by messages all of the time. I used to see billboards everywhere and I thought, “I really want to do that, create those designs, communicate those ideas to people.”
5 years later with a degree in Graphic Design, I was awarded my first job in London based agency, The Team. I remained in London for another 13 years freelancing for various design agencies both large and small (oh and a short stint in Singapore and Hamburg). During this period I gained invaluable experience working on some really amazing branding projects. Agencies include: Blacksun, Landor, The Conran Design Group and Gyro International.
It was at this point that I decided that I wanted to take my big agency experience and share it with smaller clients. I also wanted to set up my own company and share my knowledge and passion with clients who needed it. In 2004 Gabrielle Creative was born, just me and a freelance team of designers, marketeers, copywriters, illustrators and photographers……brilliant people I had met during my career.
I have never regretted this decision and have enjoyed working with every client creating some really fabulous brands, helping clients build an idea and bring it to life.

We really like working together
My good friend Hannah Marshallsay has been my right hand woman for over 20 years.

Hannah specialises in marketing both in an offline and digital environment. Both with agency backgrounds and a love of good design, we frequently join our different skill sets to offer clients a full marketing solution.
