A GRAPHIC designer is on a high after selling one of her works to chart-topping DJ Fatboy Slim.
Amy Kilner (24), of Wickersley, began her freelance career with a “banger” — a poster tribute to music megastar Norman Cook.
When the superstar DJ saw her homage on social media, he got in touch about buying it.
Norman has said that the print — inspired by his single “Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat” — would now hang alongside works by Banksy and The KLF co-founder Jimmy Cauty.
Amy spent five years working for design agencies across Yorkshire, specialising in music industry projects, before deciding to go start her own firm.
She also returned to education, undertaking a graphic design degree at Rotherham College.
She said: “After working in busy agencies to tight deadlines, I decided to return to education and recharge my creativity.
“To have Fatboy Slim email me asking for a print of my work was such an honour.
“I’ve already worked with a whole host of big brands — but Fatboy Slim is up there with the biggest names in my portfolio.”
She added: “I’m trying to put Rotherham on the map in the creative industry.
“What I enjoy most about my work is seeing how it can make a difference to people’s businesses and lives.
“When used in the right way, design can be really powerful.”
