About this site
Saffrongraphics is an online portfolio exhibiting some of the graphic design material and traditional art produced by Tracy Porter (née Connolly). A few items were produced while working as the Cartographer/illustrator in the Geography Department, University of Otago, NZ, but most items displayed here are from freelance contracts or are personal works.
I'm an experienced cartographer and research illustrator with many diagrams, maps and data tables published in peer-reviewed journals and academic books. I have also produced university advertising material and lecture handbook material. The academic areas I have most experience in are: Anatomy, Anthropology, Archaeology, Surveying, and Geography.
I've been employed as a user interface designer by several companies in Europe and the USA. The work centred around the interface icon design for in-house applications. More recently I've produced traditional media work: landscape and bird paintings (mostly sold through exhibitions), pencil portraits, and painted portraits. All works are photo-realistic.
If you would like to discuss potential contracts I can be contacted at email@example.com. All works displayed in this site are copyright Saffrongraphics 2013.
