As the Senior Graphic & Web Designer of BOLD, Dani provides outstanding design for the Third Sector, giving back through her passion for design. From branding to web design and everything in between, BOLD is the first and largest Social Enterprise Design Studio in Scotland.
These ethical brand specialists, based in Merchant City Glasgow and partnered with Community Enterprise, are a team of down-to-earth and knowledgeable experts with an open door to anyone in the sector.
This drive to provide bespoke and high-quality design services has shaped Dani’s journey to where she is today. Moving south for University at 17 years old, she never considered her age or gender to be an issue, even within a still primarily male-dominated industry, “judge me only by my work” being her personal mantra.
At the age of 21, with a degree, freelance work and some experience designing for Cumbria County Council, she set herself the goal of becoming a Senior Designer within 5 years. She was successfully chosen out of 100+ candidates as the Junior Graphic Designer at Paligap Brands, Ayr. Two years later she became Senior Graphic Designer of Microtech Digital, Kilmarnock, achieving her goal three years early.
Having served on the Ayrshire Business Women committee for the past 3 years in various roles including Vice President, and currently a STEM Ambassador, Dani never passes up an opportunity to support those around her, with a special focus on the next generation of women in business.
