About


Hello and welcome to my portfolio website. My name is Claire Louise Frieling.

I’ve been working as a Graphic Designer & Art Director since graduating from the University for the Creative Arts in Epsom, England in 2001. Originally from England, I moved to Chicago to be with my future-husband Darin after meeting him in Thailand in 2006. We now live in Oak Park, and now have two young sons, Archer and Jack. I am fortunate to have worked for many prestigious clients across a broad range of design disciplines; Advertising and magazine design for Harrods, Packaging design for Penhaligon’s perfumes, Tru Fragrance and iPod accessories, Art Direction and Graphic Design for Worldwide advertising agencies and fashion brands, catalogs and brochures for retail giants ULTA Beauty and OfficeMax and POS for Claire’s Accessories and MillerCoors. I also help small businesses and start ups with logos, business cards, print ads and websites and relish in helping with personal design requests, such as wedding and shower invitations.

I love all aspects of Design! I started a fashion label called Rudy Ludy, back in 2005. Fun, bold graphic printed t-shirts for babies and kids. I am passionate about Interior Design and enjoy working on home DIY projects and gardening.

Testimonials

Anna Wilson – Like Minds Click – Founder
“Claire Frieling is an excellent graphic designer. She helped me with a web site project, and I found her to be patient and a good listener. She digested my goals and helped me come up with a solution. I appreciated that she’s the sort of designer who also helps with strategic recommendations. She delivered on time (even when she was on vacation!) I recommend Claire as a valued design partner.”

“CLD come highly recommended.  We were in a pinch for a logo and re-design of our website and Claire really saved us a lot of capital and time getting the image and brand of our business perfect. As we are in the IT services industry, our needs were meet fully in regards to a “tech” look and feel and a logo that matched.  Thanks again Claire!”

“Claire has done an amazing job to create me a logo, letterhead and business card for my new business – all of which I love! Being a new business, I wasn’t sure what design I wanted, but Claire came up with lots of suggestions and options for me to choose from and was incredibly patient with me when I asked her to show me different color schemes etc. I can’t thank her enough – I have a logo which I love and one that really sums up my business aspirations. Thank you Claire!”
