01 about

IMG_8069 crop.jpg

Hi, I'm Ally. Welcome to my page.

 

Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, I'm a digital design specialist, occasional photographer and somewhat of a story-teller, currently living  [and thriving] in the glorious Birmingham, United Kingdom

Holding a digital award, a BCom Honours degree and over nine years of corporate marketing experience for premium brands, such as Jaguar, Land Rover and Apple Electronics, I pride myself on having learnt an invaluable way of thinking, which I now incorporate into my designs and creations.

 

Thoughtful design has the power to transform brands and grow businesses through a relative narrative, thereby deepening engagement and growing brand loyalty. And after all, isn’t that what we’re all busy chasing?

With a passion for front-end web design and averaging 90% in a User Design Experience course I completed through the University of Cape Town [UCT] back in 2020, I like to think I thrive in the online space. Did you know mobile devices now account for approximately half of our web traffic, worldwide? Mobile optimisation, responsive design and page SEO are some of the pivotal elements to consider when choosing where to build your website.

I love designing clean, user-friendly and functional interfaces which will quickly get to the heart of what it is you’re looking to achieve. Please get in touch with me for assistance with a new web design or build, improvements to an existing one, any form of other digital design, engaging social media content, aesthetic (print) graphic design and last but not least, email marketing. I'm always on the lookout for new projects, ventures and collaborations!
