Hi, I am Rebecca... but you can call me Becky.
I am a freelance designer making my way in the world from my base here in wonderful Manchester, England. Southern born, but have found a Northern home.
I have worked on projects across a full range of design including branding and logo design, all sorts of print design such as brochure design, posters and flyers, including large format and exhibition design, plus design for websites.
Before going freelance in 2013, I gained 2 years agency experience plus placement know how following my graduation in Graphic Arts and Design from Leeds Met University.
I am able to work from my colourful desk (below) or to work in your studio, just get in touch to find out my availability right now.
I love design and illustration and it seems to find its way into everything I do whether I’m actually working for cold hard cash or not. I believe in simplicity and strive to get the best outcome for every project I tackle. I’ve been praised for my ability to fill in the blanks and quickly get the gist of a brief, however complex. I like to think ahead and try to see everything I do in the context it will exist now and the way it will be used and seen in the future.
Some of my skills:
Illustrator, InDesign & Photoshop: I’m all over those bad boys
- while not a certified expert user, I would put myself in the mid-advanced level (and always trying to improve!)
HTML & CSS: only very basic coding skills
- for personal projects and the odd tweak- I leave the development to either your experts or mine
Up for some hard graft
Always looking at the fine detail
- both in designs and keeping an eye on copy for typos if needed
And much more besides
- including being able to do the splits, but that doesn’t help make me great design all too often. One day maybe...
For a copy of my full CV, please get in touch.
More in-depth collections of specific kinds of work, including examples not on this site for one reason or another, are available. These include brochure design, design for exhibitions and website visuals design, please contact me and I’ll send over the appropriate pdf.

“Great work on our flyers and business cards. Creative, painstaking and responsive - what more could we want from a graphic designer?
Oh yes, friendly and helpful too.”

“I commissioned Rebecca to do several illustrations of British dress codes as no such drawings exists where the accuracy is spot on. The level of detail the subject demands meant that I was not sure whether any illustrator would be able to meet the brief but Rebecca surpassed this effortlessly. The results are incredible and I could not have asked for anything more.
She came highly recommended to me by a trusted friend and I shall be singing her praises high and lo for many years to come. Thank you!”
“Rebecca took our project with another level, she provided us with very effective branding. I was taken aback by the amount of ideas she came up with and how, with only a few emails, she designed a logo that is perfect.
We cannot thank her enough for the hard work & talent that was put into our project. Thanks, from all the Serious Feather team.”
