When my dear friend Harriet Forster took up graphic design I was most impressed. And, come to think of it, excited!
I thought "I am going to get some serious design tips from this babe"- (I didn't in case you were concerned for my lack of creativity.) Turns out that having a creatively talented friend doesn't mean you are going to somehow magically be able to be that way inclined.
So, I've left the important stuff up to Hattie.
<-- This is Hattie!
I sat down with Hattie (at our computers because we live hundreds of km's away now) and quizzed her about graphic design.
TRB- Why graphic design? You did a business degree at uni so what made you want to start again and study graphic design?
HF- Ok, so...I always had a passion for art and did it throughout school, but my passion for agriculture took over. At my first job after Uni I started designing ads for the website and flyers for the company and realised that I really enjoyed it and loved bringing out my creative side again. I really didn't know that much about graphic design and knew nothing about the software to use so decided I would really benefit from studying Graphic Design. I never realised how much I enjoyed learning until it was a subject I loved!
TRB- Where did you study graphics?
HF- CATC Design School in Sydney
TRB- Why is graphic design something you love?
HF- I love Graphic Design because I love creating designs for people that they love. I love that I am helping business get noticed through their logo or flyer. I love the way that I am always learning and am constantly inspired by things around. It makes me so happy that I can do this for a living!
TRB- Have you had a favourite project thus far? What was it? And- show me, show me!!
HF- Fave project would be Saltbush Stretch - I'll send logo through.
TRB- So, this is a wedding blog. What about wedding related designs?
HF- Well I must say that I have recently designed a few wedding invitations and loving that too! Here, I'll show you a few:
TRB- These are amazing! Where can my bride tribe find you?
HF- Thanks! I'm pretty easy to get in contact with and I don't really have a preferred channel so people- brides- can find me and contact me through Facebook, Instagram or email. I'll give you the links:
