Hi! I'm Wendy Stephens and I'm a freelance graphic designer + creative artist who works from my studio in Hertfordshire, with clients across the UK and worldwide.

With over 15 years experience in graphic design & illustration, I founded Dark Iris Design in 2009, using the knowledge and expertise I gained while working for several creative design agencies.

Over the years clients have included: Specsavers, BBC, Winsor & Newton, Whittards of Chelsea, Red Bull, Diageo, Budgens, Londis and local councils, so you can be confident that your design work will always be in safe hands.

With an eye for detail, exceptional customer service and a passion for creative design, I work with clients to create stunning printed materials (brochures, leaflets, booklets etc) that will attract and retain your customers.

Now that you've seen my graphic design work and how I've helped other clients, drop me an email so I can help you!


69 Wootton Drive, Hemel Hempstead, Herts, HP2 6LA

If you email me with your phone number I will return a call.
