Service Description

I have worked as an illustrator and designer in Design companies, in a publishing house, in manufacturing companies and as a freelancer. I have my own company 'Quest Design Ltd' and my main focus in this company over the last five years has been the design, illustration and production of books for both children and adults.
I have helped coach clients through the self publishing process, linking them up with editors, printers, and marketing experts. One of my clients came runner up in the Indie book awards with her book 'Bluebell Mary' which I designed and illustrated for her.
