I am a graphic designer currently working in the fashion and beauty industry. I have a passion for all things creative and design based, but with a combined interest in beauty, fashion and cosmetics. I am diverse with my work. I am capable of working digitally with Adobe design suites, website and social media platforms. I can also work manually with hand illustrations and clear thumbnail abilities. I am very self motivated and ambitious. I am also ludicrously organised and slightly obsessed with everything being just so; with a keen eye for detail. My aim is to continue developing and learning.
I currently work for Charlotte Tilbury as the Global Graphic Designer for the Visual merchandising team, and lead marketing designer for the rest of the company. I create on counter visuals and illustrations for new product launches and updating existing product imagery. Additionally, I help social media and PR with design work simultaneously . I design and safeguard all graphic elements to be used by the entire company for each launch.
I worked as part of an in-house design team for Original Additions Ltd. The company consists of 2 well known beauty brands for the retail market Eylure False Eyelashes & Elegant Touch False nails, and the other, Salon System, is targeted at salon professionals. My duties were very varied from display visuals and packaging to photo retouching, website banners and social media imagery/ illustration.
I freelanced for London based design company TOAD in addition to my own personal projects and whilst at university. They sent me projects to complete which their company didn’t have time to fulfil.
Whilst attending university I worked as a make-up artist in Boots flagship store for 2 well known beauty brands. I worked for No7 from Oct 2012 - May 2014 then Smashbox Cosmetics from May 2014 - May 2015. This is where I first found my excitement for the cosmetics and beauty industry. Whilst working as a make up artist I learnt a lot about customers shopping habits, how they respond to in-store visuals and the products themselves. I also began to understand how much impact social media and online can have on customers to get them from online to instore.
