    Hi everyone!

    My name is Donna and I am a Sydney based graphic designer who has been working within the inhouse marketing department of a public transport company for the past 6 years. I have also done some casual freelance work over the past few years on projects that have found their way to me. This year I am being more proactive about establishing my freelance business on the side of my fulltime position, with the aim to eventually transition to ‘flying solo’ fulltime.

    The main motivation for starting my business is to broaden the range of my work and to collaborate with some new people. I enjoy my fulltime position, but also appreciate a change of scene. I’m also excited about how it could all evolve in the future.

    I just launched my website http://www.donnafrith.com.au, please feel welcome to take a look and provide constructive feedback if you have any :).

    I have been visiting the flying solo site and forums for over 6 months; I’ve been inspired by so many of you and have learnt alot already. Now that my site is up for the world to see and my business cards are being handed out to everyone I know, I hope to follow in your footsteps and start putting it all into action :) I also look forward to participating more in the discussions.

    Thanks!
    Donna

    Nice work Donna.

    I think the ‘puzzle ruler’ (Other) is a neat idea.

    I like how you have managed to transfer the print design ideas into a website. Quite a hard thing to balance. Well done.

    Hi Fiona

    Thanks so much for your comment! How to present my printed work was something I deliberated over for awhile when I was designing my site so it means a lot to hear it comes across well! :)

    Great article on your site defining the developer and designer roles btw! I often find myself explaining this to people, I’ll point them to your article in future :)

    Thanks
    Donna
