about me

Hi my name is Renée, I love working with computers, post it notes (actually I am obsessed with all forms of stationery in general) straight lines & making colours match on screen and in print.

I’m a Taurean, a mum, love food and wine, bacardi & diet coke is my drink of choice, I can drive a truck, bus, forklift, paint, apply vinyl lettering, type, answer a phone and be an OH&S inspector if needed.

I enjoy being let loose in my creative space, with my candles burning, music blaring (feel free to follow my spotify playlists below) & when I am engrossed losing time in my creative mojo zone. I am super determined, intuitive & put my heart and soul into all my projects.

My style is simple (really really really simple), timeless & memorable.

Having lived & breathed marketing since a young girl, I completely understand what makes a good logo and will a develop a brand for your business that is unique, suited to all signage mediums & of course most importantly suited to your personality !

As well as my logo design services, I also thoroughly enjoy ….

what’s with the name?

Absolutely nothing…I love animals and the business name 2dog creative is very me!

qualifications?

I have a degree in business sales and marketing, trained to specialise in project management, WordPress and various other design platforms using my trusty Mac George III.  I’m a desktop publishing nerd, I have plenty of life experience (over 30+ years and counting) and still continue to learn everyday!

tell me more?

Have a look at some more information on my most common services such as Website Design, Marketing / Promotional Signage & Logo Design.

where to from here?

So just tell it to me straight, email me a detailed brief, (and maybe a picture if you can – I am a visual girl) & I’ll get back to you with a formal quotation & a quick run down of all the nitty gritties like payment requirements & design timeframes.

2dog creative tunes

A few creative tunes to get my mojo flowing. Consider this your language warning. Probably really shows my age with a few old school gangsta rap in there + a whole lot of 1994 tunes (I consider that the best music year EVER). Oh it usually works best when played VERY LOUD & with my fave coffee in hand!

This playlist has a few chillaxing tunes that I like to listen to when calming my forever active mind or when I need to really tune into my intuition (yes I really do this!). Must also be played LOUD – OF COURSE & accompanied by burning a shit load of locally Yarra Valley made amazing candles!

Awesome job all round Renée. Great work, and from myself and the team at CMB we can’t thank you enough for all the work you put in, and the many changes my OCD mind made you do. Lol. Love your work.

Thanks so much for our wonderful new logo and signage for the Kinder in 2015.  It’s had some fantastic feedback, of being fresh, modern and up to date.  It was a pleasure to work with such an accommodating and easy going person.  Not only did you put forward some wonderfully creative designs in keeping with our theme, you put up with (very graciously) my many changes.  It was never too much trouble, nor did you get offended at at any stage, which made the process seamless and less daunting.   I will recommend you to anyone who is looking for a creative mastermind such as yourself.  So nice to have met you Renee. Many thanks 🙂

Hi guys, Clinton Richards here from Dealer Image Group. We’d been using an old logo that someone had drawn 20 years ago from clipart in windows 95. Our website came from a do it yourself kit. With the help of 2dogcreative we now have a killer new logo that combined with a little imagination heads up a home page that really nails the brief. Quick, no fuss and cost effective, WIN/WIN. THANKS HEAPS!!!

Clinton // Dealer Image Group

It was a pleasure working with Renee. I really appreciated how she kept me updated along the way, was very clear with what she was able to provide, as well as being very patient while we worked on tweaking the final concept. I would not hesitate to recommend Renee to people requiring help with their branding and logo development. Thanks Renee for offering such a responsive and easy to work with service!

Renee is extremely talented and dedicated at what she does. I have watched her single handedly transform small start-up ventures into modern, relevant and appealing companies through her simplistic yet modern logo designs, email marketing newsletters, website & social media page creations and other essential small business marketing requirements. I would absolutely recommend her services to anyone with a new start-up idea or existing small business requiring a makeover. Sometimes simple changes to your image can make a significant improvement to your profitability.

Renee is tenacious, creative, does not stop until she finds what she is looking for. Her work is clean, sharp, stylised & funky. But what really sets her apart is her work ethic, her ownership of everything she attempts & usually pulls off. She will be successful in this, so jump on board & be part of that success.
