I'm Eddy, a freelance graphic designer and illustrator based in Leeds. I specialise in retro rubber-hose inspired cartoons that traverse across a wide range of formats. I've been commissioned by companies to design and illustrate branding projects, websites, leaflets, animations and streetwear designs.What steps did you take to get where you are now?After graduating with a degree in Graphic Design from the University of Leeds, I started out as a junior graphic designer for a series of creative studios in Leeds. After moving to London and being promoted to senior graphic designer, I decided it was also time to hone and develop my illustration skills. I have slowly developed and built a freelance illustration business alongside my graphic design work, gaining clients such as Keep Britain Tidy, KangaROOS, Skinny Dip London and others. I am now a professional illustrator with a range of skills perfect for any design and illustration project.What type of creative opportunities are you looking for?I’m open to any creative opportunity that comes my way. My areas of expertise include illustration, branding, print design, lettering, editorial design, illustration for packaging, promotional design… But if a project doesn’t fit into these categories, I would still love to hear about it! I'm happy to hear from potential clients, even just to chat about an idea.Answer as many of the following questions as you like to enhance your profile pageMy dream creative collaboration would be...I would love to collaborate with more Yorkshire-based brands and companies such as independent shops!What does Wakefield mean to you?I was born and raised in Sandal, so Wakefield will always be the place I call home.
