about me.

So I am Sally... a.k.a Design Bean. Weird name for a business you say? Well... Sal Bean was a nickname of mine since I was a child so it seemed the only way to go when coming up with a name for me and my new business. 


I am a Graphic Designer, based in Taunton, Somerset, originally from Poole in Dorset... and perhaps a little bit crazy - in a good way! 

I have been working for myself since June 2017 and love everything about what I do. It was a massive leap jumping from the security of a salary to self employment but when so many people encourage you, you run out of reasons not to... and I have honestly never looked back!

Prior to setting up Design Bean, I worked in the design and print industry for over 8 years in Dorset and Hampshire, working with companies large and small, from start-ups to large international chains. I gained my BA (Hons) Degree in Graphic Design in 2002 at Solent University and completed a years Foundation Diploma at Bournemouth Arts University. 


Each project I work on is an opportunity to do some amazing work that connects with the intended audience and brings increased business to the client. 

My approach is simple; Get to know the company, the people, research the target audience, the competition and the current market... and ultimately design something pretty bloody awesome that both parties are proud of. 


You deal with me from start to finish and every step in between! I always produce a high standard of work and make sure both you and I are proud of every job I design, you'll see! I arrange the print and delivery also, working in collaboration with the fantastic Carly Press here in Somerset I can offer a 'one stop shop' for all your design and print needs. 

Sally is a professional nutcase! Love her!
