Visual Communication Design, 2022

My name is Josephine and I am a graphic designer based in Canberra, Australia.  I specialise in solving complex problems using visual solutions. Armed with typography, colour, and imagery, I create simple but effective designs that meet the client’s needs. There is nothing I love more than getting a challenging brief and transforming it into a polished design piece. I thrive in the corporate world, working with government and private sector clients to help them not only achieve their goals but, to enable them to do their best work. 

I have five years of experience working in the Australian Public Service, working with stakeholders to achieve departmental goals.  My experience alongside my passion for design ensures that I always produce high-quality work and meet the client’s needs.

I specialise in branding, infographics, print, social media, and using a style guide to create effective visual communication products. I thrive when getting to bring an idea to life, from early concept to finalised product. Working alongside the client to build the best solution for their needs is something I enjoy. I excel when given the task to turn complex information into an easy-to-understand finished product. 

I already have a job, but thanks for looking.

Brindabella Tiny Homes

Brindabella Tiny Homes

Brindabella Tiny Homes is a fictional property company focused on affordable tiny homes for Canberrans. The branding reflects the company’s values of affordability, sustainability, flexibility, and excellent quality. The logo was inspired by the shapes of the Brindabella Mountains that overlook Canberra.

Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Work

Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Work

I have created a range of products during my position as an APS 5 Graphic Designer at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. My role involves working with clients across the department to help develop visual communication pieces that apply to the government-style guide. Some of my design work includes creating social media tiles, infographics, logos, and corporate documents. I work alongside my colleagues to manage workloads, uphold correct file management, and act with integrity.

Australian and English Slang Cards

Australian and English Slang Cards

I designed two sets of flashcards to assist South Sudanese refugees to adjust to life in Australia. One of the biggest struggles refugees face is not only learning a new language but, learning Australian Slang. I created two sets of flashcards, one in English and the second in Australian Slang. The icons used throughout my English set are inspired directly by South Sudanese culture.

Good Vibez Designs Branding

Good Vibez Designs Branding

In 2021 I decided to start my own small business, Good Vibez Designs. Good Vibez Designs makes hand-crafted good empowering mental health and the autism community. I wanted the visual brand to be similar to who I am as a person while connecting with the theme of my brand. Purple is a colour associated with the disability community so I used bright purples to connect with the wider community. I wanted my typography to flow in a script format with elegance while still being simple.
