Dee in line for top business award

Dee Hinksman runs Dee Hinksman Design, a Lancaster and Morecambe-based multi-disciplinary, ideas-based graphic design business with a passion for all things design.

The business designs brand identity, websites, print material, packaging and illustrations.

Dee is also currently writing an ebook about branding to help small business owners who cannot afford the expenses of a designer.

Dee was nominated in the Creative Industry Category for the Enterprise Vision Awards. The awards are to recognise women in business across the north west and are sponsored by Natwest and Virgin Trains.

Dee was chosen as a finalist from hundreds of entries across the region and will now be interviewed by a panel of judges prior to the winners being announced at a red carpet dinner in Blackpool in September.

Dee said: “The business is only a year old; however, the fact that it is such a new business makes me feel extremely proud that I have managed to get to the finals.

“The Evas are the biggest awards for women in the north west. so getting this far feels amazing.”

The awards ceremony takes place on Friday September 25.
