sophie del gaudio
I am an ambitious, creative, reliable and conceptual designer. Art & Design are my passions as well as a career choice.
I have a keen eye for layout, colour, typography and am extremely competent in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, along with Quark. In addition to my abilities on these programs I am very keen to learn and develop my skills; I am a sociable, positive and confident person who works well with others and thrives on pressure and responsibility. I have experienced many aspects of design as well as producing personal creative work of my own. I have dealt with clients, attended meetings with prospective clients, and printers. This has given me valuable experience on how to handle situations, such as dealing with PDF’s, print processes and designing to specifications.

I have worked as a freelancer, taking on work directly from clients, however when I joined Rice Creative I brought this work to the agency. During this time I worked on many projects including the following:

brochure, business cards to exhibition displays.
