My name is Frankie Gingell and i'm a freelance graphic designer from Reading, UK. I design anything from logo's to posters to a complete branding scheme of a business, band/artist or advertising campaigns.|
I have always grown up drawing, for instance my mother's nickname for me when i was young was 'Doodles' because since i first gripped a crayon i haven't stopped drawing! I studied graphics at GCSE and then furthered education to specialise in Graphics & Digital Design. I have always loved creative art however a large part of my life is also music. I play piano, typically i write original pieces and for a breif period of time i played in a functions and originals band.
I try and fuse together both arts as i will often write a song based on a piece of art or sketch up an image based on some lyrics that i have heard. Additionally, I have mild Chromethesia, a form of synesthesia - a neurological condition that allows me to "see" music in colours. It was only when i made a comment about a music video using the wrong colours to represent the song that my freinds and family had no clue what i was on about, whereas i just assumed everyone had the same experience. Later in life i have become more used to it and have allowed myself to ignore it although i now can channel the condition into creativity
