About me
In July 2020 I graduated with a First Class Degree in Textile Practice, specialised in Print Design. In Summer 2020 I was due to have my final interview in Stockholm for the H&M design internship when Covid happened and all recruitment was frozen. This was very disappointing but I have remained positive and determined throughout this time. I enjoy experimenting and pushing myself out of my comfort zone. I am a positive hard-working person, diligent in everything I do. I am thoughtful, caring and confident at meeting new people and enjoy working in a team or autonomously. I am looking for opportunities to apply my print skills either contracted or freelance in the UK or abroad.

    Print Design InternZisser Textile Design
     - Stockholm, SwedenInternship
    I relocated to Stockholm in 2019 to undertake an internship at Zisser Textile Design. I worked as part of a small team in a studio, using my own experimental hand drawn designs to create unique and commercial prints for the fashion industry, using adobe Photoshop and illustrator to develop digital prints. Throughout my internship I had the privilege of designing regularly for well known, international, high street fashion brands. I learned quickly how to create exciting layouts and how to research current trends. While I was interning two of my print designs sold, one of which was to O’Neill.
