After a successful end to 2020 and a great start to 2021, we decided the time was right to grow our creative team.

We are delighted to welcome graphic designer Freya Stirland on board!

Freya recently relocated to Dubai, all the way from sunny Doncaster in the United Kingdom, and has already been getting stuck into all aspects of design and the creative process here in the Formulate studio. Our mantra has always been that people don't work for us, they work with us and Freya will be no exception. We are really excited to have Freya on board, and we look forward to seeing her grow alongside the agency.

Tell us about yourself.

I'm an illustrator and designer who is obsessed with making things, I love to get stuck in and be hands-on when it comes to creative projects.

I graduated from the University of Hull, where I studied Graphic Design, I worked as a Designer at a full-service marketing agency in my hometown for two years. In November 2020 I decided to move to Dubai, as I wanted a new challenge and to experience living and working in a new country. I also have family here which is a bonus!

When I'm not working, you’ll find me in the gym doing a Les Mills class, or at home in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes or reading a good book on the beach. I love being active and outdoors, and I'm excited to explore new parts of the UAE.

I’m really excited to be part of the Formulate creative team, and it's great to already be involved on a number of projects, designing and developed brands, websites, and marketing materials for a broad range of clients. I look forward to broadening my skill base and continuing my creative development within an exciting creative environment.
