As founding designer and Director of Salt Design, Daile’s passion for great design and good service has never faded during her career spanning over 25 years in the Brisbane design industry.
Daile is a designer with a strong strategic focus and technical expertise in print production and project management. Her level of experience ensures Salt Design effectively manages the delivery of contemporary design, high quality and cost-efficient print collateral. Prior to the inception of Salt Design, Daile was a Senior Designer in the Marketing and Communications Unit in Queensland Government Treasury Department during which time she was responsible for the design and production of the Annual State Budget-related documentation.
Daile’s understanding and dedication to the application of the Queensland Government corporate identity stems from her involvement in its initial roll-out to the whole-of-government design community. This experience has provided Salt Design with immense capabilities to creatively design within the requirements of the government identity. Daile’s experience working with public sector clients has also resulted in an inherent understanding of the protocols and approval processes required when working with such clients. Daile’s individual design work has received a number of industry accolades including the National Print Awards; Public Sector Management Annual Report Awards and Queensland Printing Industry Craftsmanship Awards (PICAs).
