Graphic Design Project Manager

Emma Mardaine began her career in the UK too many moons ago back in 1990. Originally working in the darkroom as a lab technician for a Commercial Photography Studio, way back when it was all done by hand with developer baths and paper (the good old days)!!!

Emma progressed into design as the company expanded into producing large format displays for exhibitions and basically taught herself graphic design on the job. This enabled her to move into an advertising studio as a young designer working with a team of exceptional designers specialising in retail advertising and shopping mall displays.

Emma planned her wedding on the Gold Coast in 1997 and fell in love with the Aussie lifestyle so emigrated the following year in 1998, Emma has 2 boys (who still call her a POM!) and has lived in Burleigh since she emigrated and loves it.

Working for Local Directories for 9 years starting as a designer to eventually running the design studio, Emma decided to give it all up and become a freelance designer to give her more time with her 2 boys.

Emma is now also taking on the role of Project Management for VB Designs, assisting in briefing designers and proofing all work before sending to clients and managing the general workflow of the busy studio. Alongside designing the odd logo to keep the creative juices flowing.

What do you love about being part of the VB Designs team?
I love being part of a team even a virtual one and in this role expanding my knowledge of managing the workflow and seeing client briefs come to life with the exeptional design skills of the team I work with. Every day is different.

Where do we find you when you're not working?
Emma has a serious incurable addiction to FONTS! but when she is not working, you'll find her at the beach, in the mosh pit at live gigs (wishing she was a rockstar) and experiencing any of the amazing restaurants (along with a mojito or two) on the GC.
