About me

 

My name is Amber, I'm a multi-disciplinary designer based in London, specialising in the combining of analogue and digital processes. Having recently graduated from Central Saint Martins, I am currently available for freelance and ongoing design and illustrative work. I enjoy travelling, attempting to win the attentions of other peoples' pets, and drinking overpriced coffee in East London, whilst wearing more black than my mother would be happy with.

Work history

Currently

Freelance Creative

Self Employed

Sep 2014
  • Freelance
  • I have completed occasional freelance work throughout my time at University and beyond. This includes original photographic and illustrative commissions as well as layout/editorial design for events and companies' print and web materials. Most recently I have been involved in more inter-disciplinary, collaborative projects such as 'We Astronomers'. This was a show created for The Barbican's 'Curious Festival' comprising of integrated visual and audio pieces combining film, projection and live performance. I also accept varying briefs on an adhoc basis from Propelia; a company who act as an agency for a selection of young creatives whom they describe as ‘thought leaders’. I’m not entirely sure what that means, but it i like it.

Supporting Artist - Film

The Casting Collective

Oct 2012
  • London, UK
  • Freelance
  • Working as a Supporting Artiste (or background extra) for well-known TV programs, feature films and commercials, has given me a lot of experience of professional film sets and production environments. Performance has always been close to my heart, and this job is a great way to meet like-minded and interesting people. I feel it is important to gain perspective by occasionally working in a role that is less design-orientated, but still very enjoyable. More recently, I have gained experience as a Stand In and Body Parts Double (...my hands are like, totally, famous). Past credits include: The X Factor, ITV, BBC, BBC Radio 1, Channel 4, BBC 3, Marvel Films.

2013

Sales Consultant

Ann Summers

Oct 2012 - Apr 2013
  • London, UK
  • Full Time
  • During my time at this company I became very familiar with cashing up procedures, working out daily and weekly targets, up-selling products, replenishing stock, stock control and providing excellent customer service. This role also gave me a lot of experience in making customers feel comfortable in-store, and more importantly in their own bodies, which was fun and incredibly rewarding. I was also trained to become the store's lingerie specialist and bra-fitter, and still boast the record for guessing cup sizes among friends, although for some reason have since been advised against attempting this with strangers.

2012

Fashion Design Assistant

Wordwide

Sep 2012 - Dec 2012
  • London, UK
  • Internship
  • I collated all PR shots and high definition imagery to be used in the Christmas edition of H Magazine. I also liased with various, well-known brands to negotiate their supplying of the prizes to Christmas competitions within the issue, in return for advertising space. My favourite parts of this job however, were interviewing and photographing various shoppers on location for the 'Style' pages of the magazine, and being able to sit next to the in-house Graphic Designer and Copywriter for the majority of my time in the office. These elements of my time at Wordwide solidified my passion for design, fashion, and the interest in peoples' personal narratives that was to become a huge influence in my later design work at Central Saint Martins.

2012

Photographer

Stepping Stones Theatre Company

Jan 2011 - Jan 2012
  • Lincoln, UK
  • Freelance
  • I created flyers to promote this childrens’ theatre company, and was the photographer responsible for documenting rehearsals and performances. I also set up a fancy dress photoshoot area that I would run at the childrens’ birthday parties they put on. This seems like a great idea until you’re faced with 20 sugar-high five year olds all demanding to be Snow White.
