My name is Joanne Dalton and I am a graphic designer and artworker based in Surrey. I graduated from London Guildhall University in 1999 with a BA honours in Design Studies. During the course I had the opportunity to work on all kinds of design projects, and in my final year I specialised in Graphic Design.

After leaving University I did graphic design projects on a casual basis, designing promotional material for local voluntary organisations, a work placement at Dennis Publishing and temporary design positions. I have gradually built up my experience, companies I have worked for include Cactus Events and Balfour Beatty. My design experience has been mainly print based and now I am learning web based design and production, including PHPBB forums and WordPress based websites.

I have continued to work on a freelance basis and have taken the time to broaden my skills and I’m looking forward to working on a lot more design projects in the future both print and web design based.
