My name is Vivienne Powers I am a graphic designer with a considerable range of experience, almost twenty years. I can use all the Adobe Creative Cloud software designing anything from forty-eight sheet through to infographics, interactive CD-ROMs through to front-end web design and build, plus I am fluent with Microsoft suite presentation material (Word, Power Point and Excel). I am a good technical illustrator and artist. I enjoy working as part of a team and have good time keeping and excellent attendance record. I have studio manager experience and I am also happy to work part-time/jobshare contracts or freelance from home. I was made redundant November 2013 due to employer insolvency and have recently completed a short contract at McCann Birmingham as senior artworker. I have no notice period to serve and am available for immediate start. I am currently working as a freelance designer from home. I design and create tapestries in my spare time.

Great poetry!

The Listeners BY WALTER DE LA MARE ‘Is there anybody there?’ said the Traveller, Knocking on the moonlit door; And his horse in the silence champed the grasses Of the forest’s ferny floor: And a bird flew up out of the turret, Above the Traveller’s head: And he smote upon the door again a second
