About

My name is Phoebe Watts

Based in West London, I am a digital designer who works across many platforms. From original graphics for social media to rebranding a website’s user experience, I have worked with both small business’ and larger clients. Including volunteering my services to the charity JDRF, a cause close to my heart.

I enjoy exploring various ideas to produce the best results for you. Whether that means working in Adobe CC, finding a different approach or drawing on my experience to create a quick visual. I take pride in my artistic background and technical skillset, utilising this to problem solve and experiment with ideas. Design should be simple, impactful and true to the cause. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me and spark a conversation! @wattsgraphics
