The Face Behind The Business
Here are 6 things you need to build one
A little about me
So my name is Liz, I have been a graphic designer for around 5 years now and I am the owner of Loonar Creative. I have always been more of a creative person even from a very young age and it wasn’t until my GSCE’s where I was the only person choosing graphical art as their final project that I knew I wanted to be a graphic designer. I later went on to college to study Graphic Communication, Photography and Psychology where I learnt a variety of skills that set me up to go to university at Manchester Art School.
I quickly discovered I enjoyed bringing concepts to life through illustration and branding and even wrote my final year dissertation on the psychology behind the Personification of Brands. However, after my graduation I really wanted to join a studio as a junior designer position, but I was asked by different companies to do graphic work for them so I decided to set myself up as a freelance creative designer.
Going it alone as a freelancer meant I had a lot of skills to develop including running a business, marketing, web design and print. All the skills you think you would learn in uni… but don’t. Through working with some amazing businesses over the years I have discovered that my passion is definitely working on bringing brands to life and giving my clients the best possible experience. Being a typical people person, I love working with like-minded go-getters and really enjoy helping my clients visions become reality.

However, I know for sure I’ll not only being a graphic designer but a fine artist with my other business creating paintings and prints. *website coming soon*.
