Why did you choose your business name?
i started wanting to create edgy designed prints with quotes. so quotes + prints x design = quint design.
What have you most enjoyed in your career so far?
well after almost 20yrs as a corporate designer (gezzz can't believe its been that long, i still feel 22! lol), i wanted to create designs for me and what i liked and what i would want in my place. i got bored of what was in the market and wanted something with a bit of an edge. i started quint design in april this year to nurture my personal design tastes whilst still working in my corporate design business so i have the best of both worlds.
Have you had any major highlights, personal or business in the last few years?
personal highlights are my two little toddlers that drive me crazy but i love more than anything in the world. my personal design achievement was winning a DOSH wallet design which was produced and sold in Top3 by Design stores.
What inspires or motivates you?
believe it or not, bad designs! if i see something done badly, i feel the need to create something better... it's cool having clients come to me with their identities or marketing materials which aren't done well or working for them and then creating something that the client loves and works much better for their business.
..and lastly tell me one things about yourself that you love but has nothing to do with business...
one thing i love about myself???.. i could tell you heaps i don't like about myself lol that's easier.. ok.. i think being blessed with a creative mind, i couldn't imagine living life without design in it. ;)
