Hi, welcome to Filthy Soup.
Filthy Soup is the work of Marianne Nightingale, graphic designer and juggler of stuff. Here I am in the photo below, (if you like to put a face to a name).
In terms of career, design is all I’ve known. From stepping out as a fresh faced graphic design graduate, back in 19... (err, a while ago!) to working with top named brands and organisations. I’ve been fortunate enough to have had a great variety of opportunities.
So, why Filthy Soup? I love designing, and wanted to create a brand that was ‘me’, incorporating my design background with honesty and fun to raise a smile. Family life is where I’m at and inspiration comes from the random conversations I have with my gang around the dining table. I think it’s true to say that I’m a little bit in love with my dining table. Not least because it’s a nice table, but because of what it stands for; a time for us all to get together, talk (and eat!)
Whilst I incorporate the use of a computer in my work, there is a big shift away from it, where I create bold, hand drawn artwork to add a little brightness to life – and because colouring is good for the soul!
I live in Yorkshire with husband John (my backbone of support), children Emilia and Charlie (my honest critics) and a large box of biscuits (my downfall!). We’re a nice bunch, so please do get in touch, or follow Filthy Soup on social media to see what we’re up to.
There’s lots more to come!
