Hello! I’m Deborah, and the owner of Mookoo Design. I have been working in the Creative and Advertising industries in the UK and Australia for over 30 years. My professional background is in corporate branding and identity, as well as finished artwork for print (with a passion for illustration and pattern design thrown in for good measure!). Today my style ranges from fun and whimsical to clean and contemporary graphic design. For all the projects I undertake, I am fully committed to working with you to create beautiful branding and design which reflects your ideas, turning your business dreams into reality.
My journey with Mookoo Design started in 2009 when the challenges of raising a growing young family no longer suited the fast pace and frequently unsociable hours of working in-house for an Advertising Agency. I created Mookoo Design after a good friend, who was in the process of publishing her book about Motherhood, asked for my involvement in designing her a website which reflected the content of her book. Since then, I’ve been fortunate to work with some wonderful entrepreneurs, and have seen many fledgling innovations flourish into amazing businesses. Many of my clients are work from home parents with a vision just like me, wanting to create something special that fits in with a busy family schedule.
In 2012, I launched my own range of printable party stationery and wall art now for sale through my Etsy shop. This has been such a great project. Creating characters and themes for parties is so much fun. When I have time in between graphic design jobs, I love to invent new themes for my party range.
In 2014 I joined a 52 week Facebook Illustration Challenge started by author/illustrator, Tania McCartney. As a child I was never without my sketchbook and pencils, but somewhere down the line life got in the way of pursuing it as an adult. I didn’t draw again for nearly 20 years until Tania’s challenge which created such a positive environment for artists to show their work. It helped to give me the confidence to create my own style and start showing the world my illustrations via my Instagram account. I am so excited to have sold several of my original illustrations.. I also sell Art Prints of my work and other merchandise through Society6.
