Hello there! My name is Susie Broughton aka ‘Oddbod Soz’ and I earn a crust being I’m a freelance digital designer and illustrator. Please contact me if you would like to hire me. Previous examples of my work are available to view here.
Before opting to ‘go it alone’ I had worked most recently for Dentalshop, a dental product wholesaler as a Graphic Web Designer responsible for designing brochures, leaflets, exhibition stands, product packaging, e-mail marketing campaigns and the creation/maintenance of several websites.
Before that I was employed at North Yorkshire County Council, working both in Waste Management and Health and Safety. Along with all the regular duties these roles entailed I also designed leaflets and bookmarks etc to promote recycling to the general public.
I have also had experience as a teaching assistant in Applegarth Primary School in Northallerton. With a group of Year 6 pupils I developed an animation called ‘Space Splat’ for which the children drew all the artwork and I helped them animate it into a short cartoon which was shown in assembly.
I graduated with a 2:1 BA (Hons) in Multimedia Design & Digital Animation at Carlisle Institute of the Arts in 2003.
Apart from loving to draw, I enjoy baking lumpy cakes (it’s what they taste like that counts), caring for my fluff army of 3 cats, doing one of my many workout dvds, walking in the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside and attempting to play Beatles tunes on the piano.
