Hello and welcome to Mookoo Design.
Let me introduce myself: my name is Deborah and I have been working in the Creative and Advertising industries in the UK and Australia for over 30 years. I have an extensive background in corporate branding and identity, as well as finished artwork for print, along with a passion for illustration and pattern design. My style ranges from fun and whimsical to clean and contemporary graphic design.
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 launched 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. For each project, I use all my previous experience in marketing to create beautiful branding and design which breathes life into your ideas and turns your dream into a reality.
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. My work can currently be found on display and for sale at Art Nuvo Buderim Gallery, as well as local Art Festivals. I also sell Art Prints of my work and other merchandise through Society6.
