About me

I recently graduated with an MA in Publishing from London College of Communication, University of the Arts London (UAL). Previously I obtained a BA Honors Degree in Graphic and Media Design from UAL. I specialise in editorial design, illustration, project management, and journalistic writing. I have experience working for various companies, such as magazines, film studios, galleries and networking companies but my passion lies within publishing. I am currently seeking a full time job within the creative industries. Most recently I was a part of the Art team at ELLE magazine where I supported the Creative Director, Art Director and Designer. Previously, I worked with the fashion team at Dazed magazine assisting the Creative Director and Fashion Assistants. I have produced and conceptualised two publishing platforms, Mellow Drama Magazine and Perspective Magazine. For Mellow Drama I am currently co-editor, designer and founder, I work collaboratively with the other editors, manage contributors, and create artwork for and manage social media. For Perspective I was the the project manager and editorial designer, where I managed the editorial, design and production teams. For all inquiries or a copy of my CV please email me at 14adominguez@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
