Hi, I’m Lindsay Ball-McQueen,
An important part of my job is using my creativity to generate ideas for content and graphics that will engage clients.
Infographics are an exciting way to represent data in a way that is engaging and influential.
There's nothing better than good illustration. A picture can say a thousand words and it's my job to make sure that message is conveyed in the best way possible.
Web design is a discipline in itself, and a good understanding of design principles and user centric design means I am able to translate idea's and improve a clients website without fuss.
Whilst qualifying in Industrial Product Design at university, I discovered a love for graphic design and digital design, and on completion of my degree, went back to college for another year to take a multimedia course and brush up on my animation, Photoshop and Illustrator skills.
I have worked in an educational setting teaching, and also designing learning resources related to design.
I’ve been a designer for over 12 years now, working for agencies and as an in-house designer. I’ve worked with a variety of clients and designed everything from large scale graphics, to bespoke sculptures, to motion graphics right down to business cards. Being a part of the design team here at Boom allows me to apply my knowledge to a range of different applications and subjects.
I love all things design and colour! Flick through a Pantone book and point to any colour and I can tell you the Pantone reference. Well… it’s usually written right underneath it…
I like finding bargains, especially furniture and will spend hours searching online or trawling charity shops!
My Saturdays are usually spent teaching 7-11 year old kids art and design at a local college, and their creativity and imagination is an eternal source of inspiration in my work here at Boom.
