Dr Michelle Frantom (aka Dr Grafix)

I'm an illustrator, designer, educator and PhD type doctor. I've worked in the creative industries for more than 3 decades as an exhibiting & community artist, sessional academic and currently as an educator. About 13 years ago I switched from analog to digital art. 

Mad Fish Designs evolved in 2020 from Dr Grafix Design & Illustration (est. 2017). Illustration is my favourite creative outlet but I also love designing logos, business cards and graphics for web or print. Please contact me if there is anything I can help you with.

You'll find information about my PhD on this page. My thesis is available free to download here at Humanities Commons.

Working with Michelle on our Hiroko Cafe design was awesome. She developed our basic idea which originated from a rather scary looking Japanese emblem to a softer more kawaii (cute) business logo for our restaurant/takeaway which was exactly what we were after. Over the moon with the final design which also replicates nicely for uniforms, signage & digital.

I recently asked Dr Grafix to design a business card that expressed the new direction of my art practice. I supplied an image and brief information about the text.

I was totally delighted with the first draft. Michelle came up with a very straight forward and catchy alliteration for the text and cropped my image right down to the essential expression. 

 

Dr Grafix approaches her design work with a neurosurgeon’s precision, checks and double checks that all the particulars, size and position of font, tone and colour etc. are just right to ensure a good result once printed.

And indeed all went well. In fact I think the resulting cards are so nice I’ve been a bit reluctant to part with them.

I cannot thank Michelle enough for our Facebook Just Yours design. It has turned out exceptionally well. I appreciate how supportive Michelle was throughout the entire process. She was patient and willing to follow up any suggestions I made while still providing her own suggestions which, ultimately made for a better product.

 

Michelle demonstrated she has considerable expertise in the design field and is creative and innovative. I highly recommend using Munted Doll to any prospective client.
