Mosaic’s highly valued and creative Graphic Design Manager, Sharka Marvilla, plays an integral role in ensuring that the design behind our business and projects is consistent and reflects the high standard of product and service that we strive to deliver. With Sharka’s work often the initial interface between Mosaic and our prospective clients, she is somewhat of a quiet achiever within the business, working behind the scenes from her studio.
Due to the strong growth Mosaic has experienced, we are currently seeking equally creative and imaginative freelance graphic designers to assist Sharka in preparing the business’s marketing material.
While Sharka has been working with Mosaic since the business was officially formed in 2012, she has a longstanding relationship with our founders Brook Monahan and David Handley, working with them to develop marketing content for their businesses well before Mosaic’s time. Not only has Sharka won various design and print awards for her artistic efforts, but she has continued to exceed all design standards when taking on new projects, and is seeking to work alongside someone who shares the same drive, and strong conceptual skills.
Sharka has always loved art and has been drawing since she could hold a pencil, and gradually developed a passion for graphic design. She consistently pushes her creative boundaries, and unlike many graphic artists today, she resists the practice of only creating her ideas from a computer.
Working with Sharka requires values that align with her; someone who pushes creative boundaries and refuses to settle for ‘safe design’. This freelance designer would be assisting Sharka in developing cutting edge designs for Mosaic, whilst working alongside the businesses marketing team to meet various project deadlines.
When asked what she loves most about graphic design, Sharka replied, “I find graphic design limitless in terms of what defines it; there are no defined boundaries, the possibilities are endless.”
To continue to produce value driven content, Sharka exposes herself to an array of surroundings that assist her with forming innovative ideas that will differentiate Mosaic from other businesses and keep us ahead of the curve from a design perspective. When questioned about what she does for new ideas, she went on to say, “I seek time with nature and just observe and connect. I then go to my studio and search for ideas through painting, but I also find that travelling and visiting art spaces can help with finding inspiration”.
Something that a lot of people probably don’t realise about Sharka’s role is the significant amount of research that goes into developing and influencing designs. This is primarily important when creating a new brand, when she will research a location in order to gain more clarity around the demographic and target audience of the project. “Occasionally, I’ll also look at other industry brochures and marketing, to be influenced outside of property and to look at ways to create material that is not the norm”, she said.
