Hello, I'm Caroline a Graphic Designer and Artworker. I am currently freelancing and working at Apple using my customer service and interaction skills. I worked at Local Dialogue as a designer on their current campaigns for ongoing developments in the UK. The major clients I worked on were National Grid, Sainsbury, KFC, UCLH, Wrexham Power Limited and a number of other ongoing property developments including Catalyst housing. I designed infographics, site information maps, leaflets, posters, banners, feedback forms and signage, used to support public exhibitions informing the public about ongoing developments and proposals. I was responsible for maintaining a collection of design case studies and company information pages for presentations. In addition I have a range of print management skills which I picked up while working at Solways Printers I was involved in correcting artwork, sending out pdf proofs for clients and making plates for print production, processing and despatching orders using PrintPak as well as maintaining a database of clients. I maintained the company WordPress site and blog. I gained knowledge on processes such as foil blocking, embossing, thermography and duplexing My skills include Adobe Indesign, Illustrator, Photoshop with particular interests in typography, layout and photography. I graduated in July 2014 from Shillington College London, a studio based graphic design course run by practising designers. Earlier jobs included a junior designer position at Logorunner Design Studio in Saffron Walden, internships in Saffron Walden and then in St Albans. While working there I was involved in creating branding, order forms (layout and typesetting), stationery, business cards, client visualisation, promotional leaflets and posters. In my free time you find me either with my camera scouting out new locations or at my Latin dance classes which are a mixture of Cuban, Samba and Pachanga.Locked Pro Plan feature
