Hello. My name is Alice and I am a graphic designer looking for full-time work in London. I have an MA in Graphic Media Design from The University of the Arts: London College of Communication. In the past, I have also studied design, art history, and photography and am always willing to build on my skills and interests. I am from London but due to family ties, I have spent part of my time studying and working in Gdańsk, Poland. This has taught me to adapt quickly to new and different environments. Throughout my career, I have worked at large companies, small studios and independently. I have freelanced, worked full-time and part-time. I have experience in creating brand identities and guidelines (and using existing ones), in designing artwork, illustrations, and patterns for print, packaging, web and social media, as well as in editorial projects (typesetting and layout design). For the past 1.5 years, I have also been working in Adobe Xd, designing websites and interfaces. Privately, I love vegan sushi, cycling, hiking, and visiting galleries.
I have done a wide range of graphic design commission for UAL working remotely and in a number of UAL's campuses (such as London College of Communication, London College of Fashion, Camberwell College of Arts). Most of these have been related to events taking place around the colleges (posters, poster campaigns, invitations, brochures, leaflets, infographics). On one occasion I helped prepare merchandise for print using supplied artwork. Recently I also worked on preparing an exhibition catalogue and on the exhibition design of the postgraduate shows at London College of Communication with their in-house graphic designer Weronika Rafa. poster design / print / editorial design / typesetting / signage / retouching / infographic design / design for events: posters, leaflets, social media graphics / artworking

At art&chips studio I worked on infographic design, logo design, branding, icon design, web design, UI design, and packaging design. I was also responsible for creating concepts for new projects, as well as moving these projects from the page to the screen. I work with one other graphic designer, we shared tasks and brought projects to a finish individually and as a team. I am partially responsible for liaising with clients and printers.
