Meet Frankie Ey

Frankie is one of Melbourne’s most experienced designer/art directors. With a storied history working across a spectrum of leading agencies, there’s not much in the communications industry that she hasn’t already excelled at. There is no doubt that, simply by living in Victoria (and even Australia) you would have seen, enjoyed and been persuaded by her work.
