Graphic Design & Visual Thinking
After graduating with a Bachelor Degree (Hons) in Graphic Design and Digital Media Danielle has worked in the industry since 2002 for many high profile clients as a Senior Designer & Studio Manager.
Working in industry demonstrated the importance of design coupled with business and marketing acumen in order to accurately position a brand to gain awareness within the target market. To this end Danielle completed a further Degree in Marketing, Advertising, Sales Management and PR.
