Hello, I’m Åsa Elmehed, an independent art director and graphic design professional based in Manchester and Stockholm. Are you interested in working with me and want me to design you something amazing? Please contact me.

As a freelancer, I’m involved in numerous roles such as: managing multiple projects, brand consultation, marketing, and idea creation. I’m a creative problem solver, carefully combining design and marketing ideas, resulting in well formulated design solutions.

Branding and typography are my passions. I also have a great interest in web design and how digital media keeps evolving.

I project manage and design all my work from initial ideas to production, both within digital and printed media. I design graphic identities, responsive websites, brochures and large printed media such as hoardings and exhibitions.

I have worked as a freelance graphic designer since 2010. See my full client list here.
