About me

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.
