Hi, I’m Claire and I’m a Graphic Designer and Cake decorator.
In 2014 after working at the BBC for just over 8 years, I decided to set up on my own and created Bluefondant Design.
My speciality is in Data and Information Graphics. This includes maps, charts, graphs, Info-graphics and Responsive design for websites and mobiles. I also create leaflets, flyers, branding, magazines, business card design and much more.
I have a quarterly magazine for The Homeopathic Medical Association (HMA) that I am the designer for, I also have worked with local businesses and helped design their marketing flyers, branding and business cards.
With my time at the BBC, I worked for the BBC News Website. I helped design all the maps, charts, graphs, Info-graphics and worked on some of the first responsive pages for mobile devices. I’ve worked in highly pressured environments, maintaining a high standard of work at all times.
I manage my time and resource to ensure that other projects are not affected. I have been lead designer for longer-term and short term projects, which include a wide range of different topics.
I completed projects from brief/concept to live deployment, bringing together mock-ups of designs, user journeys, solving design challenges and user testing and learning from the results. I’m a team player but still able to work single-handed and I am an enthusiastic learner.
Yes you saw the word “cakes” at the top of the page… I also make cakes for all occasions as well.
Using my skills as a Graphic Designer, I put them to great use in designing my cakes. Producing ideas into elegant designs on cakes, to a high professional level. Using sugar-paste, Royal icing, flower and modelling pastes, my attention to detail is extremely high.
