My name is Eilidh (like 'Hayley' without the 'H') and I love to create. That's me above in my favourite shark jumper.
I'm a Scottish lass, based in Glasgow, Scotland. My cat is called Freddie and he was born in Maryhill, so he understands Scottish words.
I have studied lots of different things, starting with medicine, taking a turn through event management and ending up at graphic design.
I love being a freelance designer, whether that means coming up with ideas, tackling branding, assisting in the creative process, providing content for social media accounts, or whatever you need help with. I also offer training to individuals and organisations in best use of design principles and maximising your social media impact.
Above all, I love making sure everything is done to the highest possible standard. Details are important. Enthusiasm is important. Being nice is VERY important.
If I can help with your project, please do get in touch for a chat. I would love to hear from you!
some recent work
Do you and your team regularly put together newsletters, leaflets or posters, or manage social media accounts? Would you like to develop your skills and maximise impact? I would love to help!
I can come to you to provide training for up to ten people in design principles, social media best practice, or both.

engaging with and inspiring your target audience
What will it cost?
I love that every project is totally different! Exact costs can vary, but sometimes it's helpful to have a rough ballpark figure before we chat.
Please be assured that I am 100% honest about how much time something will take - you will never be overcharged.

What peeps are saying
Eilidh is a creative designer and writer who can take the bones of an idea and turn it into something vibrant and engaging.
Previous CEO, Playlist for Life
Eilidh has delivered a variety of pieces of work for me and for others I have recommended her to. Her work is of the highest standard, creative and innovative. She grasps abstract concepts and undefined briefs and turns them into superb design ideas. I would highly recommend her work.

Eilidh's illustrations bring our articles to life with warmth and character. I wish I could keep her in my pencil case.
