Victoria brings over 17 years’ experience and a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design. Originally from the Netherlands, she has both in-house and agency experience. As part of this growing team, Victoria’s role will involve providing design and pre-press services to customers, maintaining and developing existing and new customer relationships, as well as supporting junior members of the graphic design team.

In taking up her new position, Victoria will be utilising her skills across the company: “After years of self-employment, I am very much looking forward to working in a team environment. It’s a particularly exciting time to be joining H&H Reeds. I am excited to be involved at this stage of the business’ growth when we are building a strong team of talented people who can offer a wide range of services to our clients. Using my years of experience, I hope to bring some fresh creativity to the company, as well as sharing my knowledge with the junior members.”

Joanna, who has a degree in Photojournalism from Staffordshire University, has invaluable insight and knowledge of graphic design, covering areas of magazine design and development, and production journalism. Joanna’s new role will see her employing skills from university to work with print and graphic design software on multimedia projects. This will include corporate branding, exhibition and marketing projects, commercial print and advertising, whilst liaising with the Production Team. Regarding her appointment, Jo said: “I am delighted to join such a reputable company at this early stage of my career and to be given the opportunity to work with such a skilled team. Their support I know will be key, as I learn and grow as a Designer and Photographer.”

Victoria and Jo are the latest additions to our graphic design team, bringing our number of designers to ten.
