about

Hi, I'm Annie Basile, a diploma-qualified Graphic Designer from Sydney, specialising in Photoshop work. 

My path into graphic design really began when I first met Photoshop back in 2002. It was love at first site (I like to think the feeling is mutual). Like all true loves, this one has grown, and recent years have seen me delving even further into those
 mystical, magical realms of Photoshop.If you have any photos that need retouching, I can help. I'd love to hear from anyone needing these services, whether you're someone who just needs a photo fixed or you're a pro or amatuer photographer.As a keen semi-professional photographer myself, I understand your passion.

 

work history
As well as other assorted design projects, I was the in-house designer for an online post-graduate veterinary college and later for an auto industry retailer. I also created page layout design for The Music Network magazine, Filmink's digital magazine and The Veterinarian magazine, which I also edited.

 

I've worked in online newsrooms as a content producer for Ninemsn (the now defunct joint venture between Channel Nine and Microsoft), Yahoo!7 and BigPond. These roles included curating slideshows plus selecting, editing and optimising images for the web. It was working with images on these sites that led to my interest in graphic design and photography

graphics programs
I am proficient in the latest versions of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Lightroom as well as Adobe InDesign CS5 and Corel Painter.

the fine print

New clients: I ask for an upfront payment of 50%, with the remainder payable on delivery of the final artwork. 

If you're an eatery (that's not vegetarian/vegan) or a beauty business (that's not completely cruelty-free), I wish you the best but I'm not the right person for the job, my heart wouldn't be in it (but I can recommend someone to you).
