Zoë Walker

Graphic Artist

A talented illustrator, Zoë has been part of the JW Creative team since December 2015.

Zoë’s artistic flare begins with her raw sketching skills, which bring a unique approach to any branding project. She believes keeping to the traditional method of pen and paper before designing on a computer enables her to access a different part of her creative mind and in turn, brings raw passion to the brands she is bringing to life. Thriving on ‘hands-on’ illustrative elements, Zoë can then visualise and implement the individual colouring and quirky flare she connects with the task at hand. Zoë is a strong communicator and her unique style can be seen throughout her creative designs including branding books, style guides, page layouts and brochures.

Zoë embraces a strong connection with her instincts and intuition and brings her relaxed and creative dreams from her home by the beach in Yanchep to the corporate office. Zoë’s fun and contagious energy make every graphic design job fun.

Zoë holds an Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design from Central Tafe.
