Jayne Goodwin

Jayne graduated from Aberystwyth University in 1991 with a Fine Art and Art History degree and specialised in Illustration.

She worked as an illustrator and graphic designer at a major advertising agency in Cardiff before setting up artmatters in 1996.

She is the main contact for all your design needs.

art matters studio is a family run graphic design company. We have lived and worked in the big cities for big companies and finally decided it was not for us so we started art matters studio in 1996. We decided that we didn’t want the stresses of long distance daily commuting or the strains of employing people so we now operate from a location just outside Abergavenny in Monmouthshire.

For over 20 years art matters studio has been providing clients with creative and cost effective design and print. We love what we do and are always excited and totally commited to every job that comes our way as it offers a chance to create something totally new. Every job is different and every job is special from a business card through to a 100 page brochure.

We recognised that no business can be an expert in all things unless it were to become one of the types of business we decided against being a part of. So over the years we have built up and narrowed down a team of trusted freelancers to become part of the team as necessary. When we call on these members of the team we get to work with people we like, value and trust and you get their expertise.

Even though we live in a rural area, modern connections mean our client base is countrywide and we still offer the same professionalism, reliability, expertise and experience that people often associate with bigger companies but we just have more time for building a relationship with our customers which is very important to us.

All in all a good package for you whether its graphic design ,web design or illustration.
