“I make things look good.”

DEBRA STRATFORD | CREATIVE PROFESSIONAL

Thanks for stopping by.

Originally from New Zealand, I have travelled, “lived”, worked with some amazing companies – big and small [I love them all], absorbed cultures and gathered skills and experience from all over the world.

Choose me if you want a highly creative professional with many transferable skills in media production and the relevant experience, knowledge and qualifications for print and online.

I bring a strong set of tools that spans many mediums and industries including publishing, consumer goods, commercial print, government, corporate, fashion and advertising.
