Hi!

I’m Danielle – a graphic designer and illustrator based in Leicester, United Kingdom. I’m a recent graduate of De Montfort University where I proudly achieved a First Class BA (Hons) in Graphic Design and Illustration in 2016.

Throughout the past few years at university I’ve had the chance to take
part in briefs set by FSG, Checkland Kindleysides, Paper Rose and the RSA, as well as undertaking a number of self directed projects where I set my own briefs. My work and portfolio covers a range of skill sets such as typography, lettering, illustration, graphic design, animation and branding.

I’ve also won a number of awards (including having my work sold in Paperchase!) some of which you can view in my portfolio. When I’m not busy working away I love to travel and eat. I love to socialise over a long meal enjoying the company of my friends. Chocolate is a big part of my life and so is cake – I can’t resist 🙂

If you have any queries or just want to say hi, please contact me at danielle@daniellewetton.co.uk
