I have known Lainey for five years and have always been impressed by her artistic approach to any work she undertakes. After working with Lainey for three years I had every confidence in her ability to ensure any job was professional and well done. It makes good sense to use Lainey now she is working for herself and this year she produced my Christmas newsletter. Again she produced professional and well displayed work. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lainey to anyone looking for a graphic designer with an ‘edge’.
