Colosoul Chats With: Carol!

Hey Everyone! We're back again to give you an interview with one of our past Colosoul volunteers. Meet Carol, she started out as a graphic designer here at Colosoul and now she has her own design business in Sydney - Mimpy and Co. Be sure to check out her amazing work on Facebook >

When did you start at Colosoul and what did you do while you were here?
I started volunteering at Colosoul in 2011. I was a graphic designer who helped with the start of FoxFeet. I also helped with a range of projects from media kits, to christmas post cards, laying out articles for the publication and creating illustrations for the publication. 

What are you up to now?
I live in Sydney and currently run my own design business called Mimpy and Co. which focuses on helping businesses create a brand that best represents them and who they are as a business, whether it's a logo design, publication or social media content, I help my client strengthen their brand. 

Do you think that working with Colosoul helped get you to where you are today?
If it weren't for Colosoul I wouldn't have made the friends and resources I have today. It gave me a good starting point to connect and collaborate with like-minded creatives and helped me realise my passion for graphic design.
