Hazel Stainer.
Ba (Hons) Graphic Design

This blog was originally intended to showcase my graphic design and illustration work, but in recent years my aspirations changed. Whilst I still enjoy designing, my love of writing, reading and researching is much stronger. Every friday, I post a blog about a recent exhibition or museum I have visited (or a topic of interest if I have been unable to travel). This year (2020), I received over 11,000 visitors to this blog, which is phenomenal. If you would like to support my work, please consider becoming a Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/hazelstainer

I passed a proofreading course in 2018 and won the runner-up Student of the Year Award. I am listed as a “Top Reviewer” on Netgalley and post hundreds of book reviews on Goodreads. I am open to book reviewing and proofreading commissions.

I completed my Graphic Design degree in 2013 with a 2:1. I was very pleased with this, particularly as this period of time was difficult for me. During this course, I developed a liking for illustration and, therefore, lean towards using hand-rendered images in the designs I produce. All examples of my degree work can be found here.

Due to health reasons, I am currently unemployed but occasionally take on small commissions. Most of these are on a voluntary basis for my local church. I have had the odd paid commission for logos, greeting cards and posters, and always receive positive feedback. My recent work includes designing the website for Gants Hill United Reformed Church.

  1. I’m a volunteer at the London Canal Museum and was very interested and pleased to read your reference to the museum in your recent post. In 2019 we hosted a special event celebrating Carlo Gatii and his family’s contribution for which we did some extensive research.
    Also you may be interested in a project currently being initiated by the Canal & River Trust developing audio tours of canals. If you are interested I suggest you contact them.

  2. Hi Hazel, I really loved your piece on the Canal Museum; I work there and would love to have you do a Zoom event with us; perhaps a talk or something of your choosing; would you be interested? If so, please email me vtm@lcmemail.co.uk (Richard)
