Glass jar with Annie's logo

About

Hi, I'm Annie Basile, a diploma-qualified Graphic Designer and Photo Editor from Sydney, with a love for logos and illustration.

My path into graphic design began when I first met
Photoshop back in 2002 while working on a website. It was love at first site (I like to think the feeling is mutual). Like all true loves, my love for design has grown, from an infatuation to a 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, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw as well as Adobe InDesign CS5 and Corel Painter. Additionally, when Adobe just isn't enough, I use Topaz Labs software for sharpening, noise reduction and masking.

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).

That's enough about me. Let's hear about you. Contact me if you want some no strings attached, friendly design guidance.
