Nice things my clients have said about me:

Professor Jana Funke, Out and About: Queering the Museum at RAMM Co-Director 

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Frank Duffy, who designed the logo for our Out and About: Queering the Museum at RAMM (Royal Albert Memorial Museum) project. We are so thrilled with the final design, which really captures the identity and ethos of our project. The process of working with Frank was brilliant: they were patient and professional as we went through different iterations of the logo and really listened to us to make sure that we were happy with the design. The way in which they translated our thoughts and ideas into a beautiful logo design was nothing short of impressive. We would highly recommend working with Frank and would happily do so again ourselves.

Thank you Frank for being super efficient and understanding! It has been a pleasure to work with you.

Rhian Evans, Participation Officer, Children’s Commissioner for Wales

For our work on cyberbullying, we wanted an illustrator based in Wales who could create interesting and appealing art that was suitable for a whole range of ages and abilities. Frank’s work stood out immediately and ticked all of the boxes. Frank used quotes from workshops with Rhyl High School and young people at the Unity Youth Gender Equality Conference to create 12 illustrations which conveyed young people’s experiences of cyberbullying. They were able to work to a tight deadline and still produce some really powerful images for our project. We had asked Frank originally just to do the illustrations, however after seeing the quality of their work we then asked them to go to design the entire resource packs. We were really pleased to be able to use the images both with young people and also to promote our work on the project to a wider audience! Thanks Frank! 🙂

Grace Todd, Senior Learning, Participation and Interpretation Officer at National Museum Cardiff

“Frank has been contributing to the work of the Learning, Participation and Interpretation department at the National Museum Wales for several years on a range of projects. Frank is professional, efficient, and has an ability to understand and design what we require. Frank listens, and understands that our remit is engagement and thus their illustrations have to be engaging, they have to hook the reader in.

One of the most demanding projects that Frank worked on was developing illustrations for a children’s story book that we published about a dinosaur. Having written the story I had strong ideas about how the characters should look on the page. The story was an intrinsic part of one of our school’s workshops for 4-7 year olds, and as such needed to encourage engagement, and a sense of exploration and discovery for the pupils. Frank’s illustrations encourage children to go back to different pictures and to discover new things. They help children read characters’ emotions and interactions.

Recently Frank’s designed and illustrated learning and activity resources for a new high profile exhibition on archaeology. In keeping with the brief these were designed to increase the enjoyment and engagement of young visitors and their families. Frank’s playful, lively hand-inked drawings have really encouraged children to be creative, imaginative and spontaneous. They’ve also helped make big themes and topics conveyed in the exhibition accessible and easy to relate to for our younger visitors. Parents, teachers, and children have all embraced these resources, the feedback has been tremendously positive. The illustrations have encouraged visitors to look more closely at what’s being shown, prompted observation, discussion, curiosity and speculation.  One of the archaeology curators said she’d never seen archaeology conveyed in such a fun way!

Frank has also contributed to a lot of ‘one off’ projects for the department over the years. Our audience is varied: families, school groups across the ages, adults, toddlers, teenagers. In each instance Frank has demonstrated sound understanding of the audience and how to engage with them. We’re always asking Frank’s illustrations to work hard, they have to engage visitors, convey ‘big stories’, encourage imaginative, exploration and creativity, and help make the museum experience fun. Frank has demonstrated an ability to do this on every project.”
