I have been a Graphic Designer for 18 years now. 
I started my career working for a small London-based design agency called 'Creative Element' before taking some time out to travel the world. 
On returning to the UK, I moved up to West Yorkshire and my first job was as Graphic Designer for the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds. 
I then crossed the Pennines and worked for Insider Business Magazine in Manchester. 
I went freelance when family life dictated I should do so; and I've been enjoying it ever since. I'm now in my fifth year of being a freelance Graphic Designer and am enjoying every minute of it.
Hopefully, having browsed through my portfolio, you have found things that you like. 

I genuinely love working with Theresa because she has a natural way of understanding your needs and can quickly get to an initial design concept that's completely in-line with what I want. 
I've worked with Theresa on several design projects from logos to info-graphics to full brand design. Recently Theresa did a personal brand logo for me, which I adore! It's a very personal thing to get a brand or logo developed that encapsulates your core values and passions (as well as design preferences). My brief was wide because it included so many aspects of the things that I love. Somehow Theresa managed to refine this down to a selection of designs really quickly (after a couple of conversations). We had a final design within a few weeks. We then made some tweaks and revisions and I received all of the files formats that I requested without a quibble. It was simple, easy, no fuss! 
Every time I've worked with Theresa she has shown patience, understanding, enthusiasm for our ideas and has a genuine interest in getting to a design that really works for digital and for our values and preferences. 
I can't recommend Theresa and her work enough. Please get in touch if you are looking for a designer!

Wow! We asked Theresa to help us design a leaflet and some branding to promote a week of events in the local community we are running as a church. She took time to get a feel for us and for the project, and with what felt like a few vague ideas and hopes, she produced something beautiful, which exceeded our hopes and expectations. She has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help us through the design and printing of the leaflet in lots of ways, and has always been friendly, patient, quick, creative and thoroughly professional. They say you get what you pay for, but I know we got far more! Thank you! I would heartily recommend her to anyone and everyone with a design project in mind.

I'm so pleased with Theresa's design for my leaflet. It's clear, fresh and gives the right image for my business. And she was a pleasure to work with.

Theresa was keen to understand our business and objectives - as a result we are thrilled with our logo.

We needed professional advice and design skill to create a striking and informative concert programme. Theresa listened and questioned to tease out and clarify all our requirements, she provided excellent advice and a great design. She met all our deadlines with calm efficiency. We will ask Theresa to design our next brochure or programme. 

I worked with Theresa for a number of years when I edited local parenting magazine, Families Pennines. Already an established magazine, we wanted to inject new life into the current design, and worked together to create a fun, eye catching magazine that would appeal to local families. Theresa is incredibly patient and hard-working and was able to redesign the magazine following the rebrand of the overall franchise business using its set brand guidelines. Together we produced 15 magazines and received lots of positive comments from readers who really liked the new design.

I have worked with Theresa on a number of client projects and I trust her fully to translate their vision. What I like about working with Theresa is that it is a two way conversation, she will listen to our brief and then offer creative suggestions to enhance and even sometimes simplify for better effect. She asks great questions ensuring that the resulting designs are exactly what we are looking for and more. 
I enjoyed working with Theresa Mcdermott recently when she created a professional dance logo for my company. Theresa took all my requirements into consideration and she was extremely professional in all levels of working. Theresa created a wonderful company logo. I would definitely recommend her services. Thanks.
