Hello, my name is Carolynne, I am a freelance designer and illustrator…  among other things :)

Sweet studio is my freelance business, I am based in North Yorkshire and I work with individuals and businesses creating bespoke graphics, digital designs and beautiful responsive websites.

About Sweet Studio

I am based in rural North Yorkshire in a little village called Seamer, just outside the lovely Georgian market town of Stokesley.

I have a degree in Fine Art and an MA in Creative Multimedia, I opened Sweet Studio Designs in 2006 as my own freelance business. I love the varied nature of the job, each day can be a new creative adventure and a new opportunity to broaden my skill set.

As a freelancer I am a hands on creative, quality is of great importance to me. I do not outsource my work, so please don’t email or call with outsourcing offers, it’s not a matter of maximising profit it’s a moral standpoint and I will not be swayed.

I work mainly with individuals and small to medium sized businesses and business start-ups. I pride myself on being dependable and honest, and by doing my very best to help my clients and their businesses.

I regularly collaborate with agencies and other web developers on projects and white label my services for other agencies and businesses.
