about me

Who am I?


My name is Hilary Bates, and I carry out most of my freelance work from my office in the heart of West Sussex.


Working on a wide variety of projects with an equally wide variety of clients, no job is too small or too large. Having a network of industry connections and associates to support large projects and working from time to time with other team freelancers when necessary I can tailor my working pattern and structure to suit your project.  My connections in the print industry enable me to price print jobs competitively and ensure consistantly high quality products. However, I am also happy to be introduced to your own print company if you already have one in mind.



My background... 


With over 10 years experience of sales and marketing within the pharmaceutical industry, I have gained extensive and varied experience in a large corporate environment while also gaining valuable insight into the functionality of a large public body such as the NHS.  Prior to that I was employed as a Corporate Events Manager for five years staging international conferences and exhibitions, product launches and scientific seminars; I also worked within the press office of the Tate Gallery and mucked out horses and milked dairy cows amongst other things. So varied is my background that I feel able to quickly appreciate and gain empathy with any number of businesses, products and concepts.


My passion for art and design has run alongside my career, and I was fortunate enough to be able to return to studing for a couple of years to complete an HNC in Graphic Design, from which I graduated with Distinction.


I have now been working as a freelance designer for 8 years and am glad to be able to pursue this exciting, varied and rewarding career.
