Hi and welcome to Gentle Giant Design. I'm Shyned. 


I began Gentle Giant Design to create beautiful work, whether that's creating a brand identity from scratch or collaborating on illustration.  The most important thing to me is that you love what we create together.


I specialise in graphic design and illustration and am an expert in both hand-drawn and digital techniques.  This duality allows me to create designs entirely bespoke to your needs and style. 

I founded Gentle Giant Design in 2016 because I wanted to create a personal, professional and full creative service for my clients.  

Previously I worked as a freelance graphic designer and an artworker.  Being freelance, I learnt the importance of versatility in creating the best creative content for corporates, small businesses and charities. 

Please have a look around and get in touch.  I can't wait to work with you.

What I do

Turn your research into engaging infographics or a unique, eye catching presentation
to engage interest and communicate your message.

I create visuals and
eye-catching designs for booklets, brochures, manuals, magazines, roll ups, posters and much more. Get in touch to talk about your needs.

Let me create your new website for your business and attractive social media visuals and to help your online presence and sales grow.

Whether you need to design a new corporate identity or want to improve your existing branding - I am here to help and make that first impression count.


Shyned is professional and a pleasure to work with. She is patient, clear in her communication, and open-minded. Despite changing my mind several times during our work together, she was open to revise the logo until I was completely satisfied. I highly recommend her!


Gentle Giant Design created my brand and logo as a counsellor. Working with Shyned was a very positive experience as she listened carefully to my needs, was very patient and dedicated, and created a beautiful website that really captured me as a person and a therapist.


Shyned from Gentle Giant Design created the logo for our charity.

She was really responsive

and great at listening

to our ideas and working

with us to create

a logo that perfectly

captures the essence of

our charity and what we do!
