Hi, I’m Jude & just to give you a little insight into my background.
I shall start way back when I grew up and studied in Staffordshire. I always enjoyed art and knew from a young age after painting alongside my mother at home, (she was a paintress for a local company) that I wanted a career in design. I went to Art College at Newcastle-under-Lyme then went on to study Industrial Ceramics specializing in surface pattern design at Staffordshire University. I continued to work within the ceramic industry as a designer for 15 years, working for Wade Ceramics, James Sadler and Cardew Design.
I then worked for a company called Collectible World Studios as a visualizer, which covered a broad area of design. As part of the innovation team we constantly worked on new ideas for fresh and exciting product lines. From 2006 onwards I decided to start working for myself as a freelance designer/illustrator and have been working for a wide range of companies designing a great variety of products ever since.
