Who am I?

trust me, I've learned things

it kills to have mad skills

First, you might be asking yourself "what the hell is a Goldie Standard?", it's not an easy answer.

 

To begin with, I'm Goldie. A thirty something year old Graphic Designer from Sydney.  The Goldie Standard is a little project I started way back in twenty fourteen, doing graphic design for small businesses and individuals as a way to grow my portfolio.

 

You're probably asking yourself "but you're in your thirties, your portfolio should be massive & awesome!" Well you're right, it is awesome...so far. I started the first 15 years of my working life as a Horticulturist and Landscaper, but felt that I wasn't getting the creative relief I was yearning for, so I went back to school and did a Diploma of Graphic Design.

 

Along the way one of my teachers suggested I should do this thing called AWARD School, which is a bloody hard course run by the Advertising Industry, all about idea creation and communication. So I got in, finished that, and here I am, ready to bust into the advertising world as an art director or graphic designer.

 

So check me out, better yet, give me a call, I'd love to have a chat over a coffee or even a beer.

 

Speak Soon.

Not forgetting about the horticulture and stuff, but you don't need to hear about it right now, so....
