If we don't take chances and go after what really makes us happy in life, then we'd always end up wondering, what if, right?

I'd always wanted to start my own business, and since I can remember have had a love of art and design, with a natural creative flair from a young age.   I've always been a bit of a techie geek too, keeping up to date with current design trends and software launches, and I love how social media has now grown into a huge community of makers and artisans, each with a unique story to tell.

As I approached my 30's, I felt it was time for a change. With a background in fashion and marketing, I plucked up the courage to finally quit my job that wasn't really going anywhere and set off to Australia to do some travelling. I also started my blog Wondering English Rose posting snaps and stories from my travels along the way.

The change of scene and experiences away from home inspired me to finally follow my heart and do something I’d been thinking about for years, which was to pursue a career as a graphic designer. I wanted to learn from the best, so I signed up to study design at Shillington College in London, a design school renowned in the industry where I learnt so many valuable skills.

I’ve since worked on some amazing projects with some truly inspirational businesses, and I love to see people succeed and achieve their dreams. I knew I wanted to help more businesses and creatives bring their ideas to life through design, so I started Emma Curran Design, offering a wide range of services, both in Essex and London, but also remotely too.

So let’s have a chat if you fancy working together, I'd love to hear about your next project or idea.
