Jodie Cameron

Graphic Design

Heyoo, My name is Jodie, and I am a Freelance Graphic Designer with a love of reading, learning, video games, voluntary work for causes near and dear to my heart and being a small business owner settled in a small family friendly country town of Temora.   While my friends would tell you I'm a bubbly, fun and yet Introverted kind of gal, In my working hours my passion and determination shine through. If there is something I don't know, I am always willing to take the time and initiative to learn. I am someone with a passion for creativity; if I am not doodling in the back of my artbook or some scrap paper laying around on my desk while catching up with friends on the phone, then you will find my brain is absorbing the next movie length course that I've discovered on online.  My mission is to help support my clients by inspiring their dreams in hopes of delivering their message and showing them that it can all be achievable and affordable.  In freelance, we are taught to aim for the clients that have the most money, and from a business stance it makes perfect sense, but this leaves an opening in the market for small business owners and Not-for-profit (NFP) organisations who can't afford massive campaigns to broadcast their message all over the world. Alas, this is why Elusive Dream Design was created to fall into the category of support these business and organisations.  Since 2017, I have volunteered for a local Not - for - Profit organisation, Temora Community Centre. There I was able to assist and design marketing materials for events, workshops, community groups and even stages of rebranding. This change the reputation of the centre as not only a place that offers information, referrals or assisting people in need but they also provide a range of services in the form of activities, workshops, self-interest courses and programs.  If I haven't scared you off yet, then contact me today to book an appointment for a free consultation. ​ If your someone who would like to know more about my design processes, inspiration, knowledge or even bookmark for future offers then subscribe to my monthly blog and newsletter updates, or you can track me down on social media, where I post upcoming and completed projects and snippets from behind the scenes of my daily life.

Don't underestimate the power of your local community. While everyone may not need a graphic designer, building these local relationships can ensure the support and a lending hand is always there to spread the word. Word of mouth is your best form of advertising.
