Freelance Graphic Designer

* Fields labelled with an asterisk are required and must be completed.

I'm Jo Ogilvie, a graphic designer with 18 years professional experience who has always had a passion for creating. Graphic design was the perfect path for me to travel as it encompasses so many creative outlets. I studied first at Central St Martins in London and then gained my BA (Hons) in Graphic Design at Kingston University. Since then I have worked for several agencies in and around London including Interbrand Newell & Sorrell, Aricot Vert, Conker Design, Reef Communications and Harrods Creative.

Within these agencies I worked for a great variety of well known brands including Armitage Shanks, Compass Group, Invensys, NHS, Waterstone's and Virgin Limited Edition.

Working on projects alongside my clients from the concept stage to delivery of the finished product has always excited me. Many of the projects have included collaboration with illustrators, photographers, copywriters, web developers and printers.

As my portfolio shows, since starting Sharp Pencil Design in 2007, I have worked with a range of clients on branding, print and web design projects, many of whom have returned to use my services year after year. Most recently I have designed point-of-sale items for Colgate (via HH Global), brochures for a global technology company, advertising for the high end jeweller Theo Fennell, branding for a new secondary school and skincare product packaging for Avon (to be launched later this year).

If you are looking for a personal approach to your project from a professional designer then please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.
