ABOUT ME

about-graphic
My name is Paige Pennifold and I like to call myself a Visual Communicator. Yes, I am trained as a graphic designer, but my background and skill set in illustration, typography, fine art, videography, web design and photography are a mixture of various mediums that allow me to excel in all types of visual communication. These skills allow me to solve problems in a fresh and interesting way, working with whichever medium is appropriate.

My goal as a designer is to improve user experience and communication between people on a daily basis. I have a passion for design, and find the diversity of each project I work on an exciting and refreshing opportunity.
