About me

 

Hi, I'm Alex. I have just completed a BA (Hons) Degree in Illustration with the University of Portsmouth. I'll be graduating with a 2:1 very soon and I am so excited to get my career started! I am a really positive, highly creative person. As an illustrator, I specialize in collage however I really enjoy working in other mediums such as printmaking, water colour and digital design and I often combine these things.. I am currently looking for full time work. I am interested in digital design but I am absolutely open to any work involving aspects of design. I am extremely confident in using adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign and I currently hold a professional badge for Photoshop. I can work under pressure to strict deadlines as my Illustration Degree has taught me to really gain and build on my time management and skills and to prioritize where appropriate. Over the last four years I have worked in two different retail roles and because of this, I have great communication skills and am very used to working as part of a team. This has also allowed me to learn to keep calm under pressure which I think is very important in any work environment. This has also helped me with my time management as I had to keep a good balance between my education and my part time job.
