Surface Pattern Design • Illustration • Graphic Design • Art Direction – or simply, a Creative.
I best describe myself as simply a creative, a creative who has honed skills in Surface Pattern Design, Illustration, Graphic Design and Art Direction.
The Oxford Dictionary describes the term creative as ‘Relating to or involving the use of the imagination or original ideas to create something.’ This is what I do when I take on a brief. I use my imagination or original ideas to create something, no matter the discipline or intended target market.
Surface Pattern Design + Illustration
Custom designs, hand drawn pieces with a bold graphic feel is what I love to do. I prefer to work in vector and set up my patterns in technical repeat. I like my work to begin with an idea or theme, have a purpose, and most of all be fun. Alongside the commercial art is a great love for traditional lead pencil illustrations and an ever exploring journey into my creative side.
Graphic Design + Art Direction
I love strategic thinking and coming up with top level ideas. Ideas are my strong point and coming up with campaign visuals that will work across all media and platforms. Along with that creative thinking, I have 17 years industry experience working as a Graphic Designer in both small studios and large advertising agencies. I’m good with layouts, composition and have a good eye for design. If you’d like to see more of my graphic design and advertising work then please click on the link below.
Some nice things people have said about me
Creative Director | March One Advertising
My name is Ben Coverdale, I am the Creative Director of March One Advertising. I have had the pleasure of working with Rebecca Irvine for the past 11 months and am happy to write this recommendation for her. She is indeed fantastic.
First and foremost, Bec is great at what she does. She has a unique eye for design and art direction. She happily works on everything from brochures, to websites, to billboards, banners and online content. She simply jumps in and gets the job done well – sans the ego.
Bec is inquisitive, empathetic, honest and funny – a combination all too rare in advertising. She works well on her own and in a team. And, most importantly, you can rely on her.
I worked in the Brissie Advertising scene for six years before moving to Sydney. I know Bec will thrive there. A North Queenslander herself, she understands the culture. She knows the people. And she will make any agency she works with proud – yours included.
Business Manager | Become Recruitment Melbourne
(Previously Recruitment Consultant – Freelance/Temps at Become Sydney)
Bec has freelanced for me and become for 4 years and I don’t think I’ve had another designer have such consistently good feedback with so many different studios over such a long period. Not only was the feedback on her design skills and technical ability always high, everyone just loves having her around. Bec is versatile, not at all precious, talented and a pleasure to work with.
I’d recommend Bec to any studio or agency without hesitation.
