Black and white portrait photo of Yvonne Frindle. Photographer: Phillip Oliver
I’m a Sydney-based graphic designer and writer-editor with a background in the performing arts.
In particular, I love to make concert and theatre program books that:
• support the artistic vision of your programming
• serve audiences both experienced and new
• communicate with authenticity and friendly authority, and
• are true to your brand
My deep art form knowledge comes from experience as a musician, dance student, concert programmer and specialist writer, copywriter and editor, as well as the crucial experience of being in the audience.
I’ve worked for leading concert presenters in Australia and alongside specialist marketing teams, and I’ve participated in major design and rebranding projects from the client side. If you’re a concert, dance or theatre presenter, I speak your language and understand your priorities.
I’m a lapsed flutist and pianist, but I love to dance. My weaknesses include sketching in public.
