G'day. I'm Xanthe.

Owner and Visual Strategist

I started 'Dare to be... BOLD' over nine years ago because I wanted to bridge the gap between client and designer. I am proud that over the years I have built strong working relationships with many wonderful, inspiring, innovative clients from all over the world –whilst also been given the opportunity to become an integral creative contributor for many of Australia, UK, Europe and USA's leading and most reputable brands. I've also had the privilege of teaching graphic design, developing training programmes and mentoring students as they embark on their own careers in the creative industry. I love to share my knowledge and experience, and work on projects that challenge, inspire and evoke my creative sensibilities.


I am a freelance visual strategist and graphic designer.
