Hi I’m Vanessa. Or you can call me Ness. I’m a Brisbane based freelance graphic designer, photographer and photomedia artist with a passion for helping to build and manage creative and meaningful brands for other purpose-driven creatives, not-for-profits and women in business. Let’s make something unique and inspiring together! 

I  have over a fifteen years of experience working in-house for local and national creative and not-for-profit organisations and I get an absolute kick out of finding the right visual solutions to those tough marketing challenges. I specialise in branding, web design, digital design and motion graphics for web and social media. 

I’m also an award-winning photographer and photomedia artist and for the last fifteen years have always had a camera at hand. I love visual storytelling, portraiture, travel, fine art, campaigns and branding. I regularly exhibit my work throughout Australia as well as overseas. You might have seen my work at the Queensland Centre for Photography, Brisbane Powerhouse, National Museum of Australia, San Diego Institute of Art and at the Head On Photography Festival. My work has been published in Photographer's Forum, Monster Children Magazine, Seattle Weekly, Mother and Baby Magazine and Australian Art Collector amongst others. 

I have been a finalist in many national art prizes and my work is held in various private collections throughout the world.
