I am a multi-disciplinary creative and recent graduate of Goldsmiths, University of London. I am capable to work across a broad area of mediums, such as 3D, graphics and moving image but always remain with bold concepts which reflect a deep thinking about systems in the world. I greatly enjoy collaborative working, and am looking to build on my experience within production and video into exciting new ways. My past work experience has been in Production company Prettybird, as a director's assistant for Elisha Smith Leverock, and as a creative Intern for XL Recordings. I am currently a concept developer for Venturespring, collaborating with corporate companies to develop the usability and functionality of apps. I also work on a freelance basis on my own freelance projects, spanning from music videos to artwork.
As concept developer within this tech-start up company my role is to collaborate with corporate companies to develop and realise ideas for new apps. Responsibilities include compiling market research, carrying out strategic analysis of app development, and brainstorming out-of-the-box ideas for functionality and branding. I have gained from this role diligent communication skills alongside experience in working to tight deadlines with a variety of clients.
During this internship I worked alongside the Creative Director to help develop and realise ideas across a number of artist's campaigns. Working in generating print, digital and online content I learnt many lessons about promotion within the music industry and how to appropriately create branding for different audiences.
I worked under close direction of Elisha, a director of music videos, commercials and fashion film to help communicate ideas in the form of treatments. I assisting in compiling research, proofreading and assembling treatments. I learnt an in-depth understanding of idea-generation and the communication of an idea.
During this internship I worked on a wide variety of roles to oversee the entire production process. I assisted with general pre-production errands alongside compiling research and helping to create a variety of graphical content. On set I assisted as a runner for Preen Fashion Show and as an art department assistant for Two Door Cinema club's video for 'Changing of the Seasons.' I have also assisted as an editor for 'OMG Cameras Everywhere,' a music video camp for kids, working alongside established directors. From this I gained a broad understanding of the production process and working collaboratively to tight deadlines.
Awarded 2:1 This course at Goldsmiths taught me a thoughtful, thorough and unique approach to design and it's influence within our world. With a focus on concepts, we were taught to apply our ideas to whichever medium seemed appropriate with a multi-disciplinary approach, developing a broad range of practical skills ranging from graphics, film, 3d and everything in-between. This overall taught me many diligent lessons in project management, working collaboratively, and problem solving.
Awarded Distinction This year-long foundation diploma taught me a deeper understanding of the design process to develop skills within problem solving and idea generation across a variety of mediums.
