Hello!

My name is Victoria Minchener and I am a graphic designer based in Cheltenham, UK. I have a 2:1 degree in Graphic Communication from Loughborough University, and since graduating in 2012 I have gained experience in a studio and on a freelance basis, with a variety of clients on an array of different projects. I am most passionate about identity design, and enjoy the challenge of designing memorable and creative brand identities.

Where possible, I have lent my skills to start-ups and charitable organisations, as I really relish the process of starting with a blank canvas and educating my clients on the importance of a professional, identifiable and consistent identity.

When I'm not designing, I can frequently be found baking or enjoying a good cup of tea. I adore all things typography, especially anything hand-lettered. Above all, I love nothing more than an adventure.
