About me
I'm an enthusiastic Junior Graphic Designer based in South East London who graduated from Shillington College. One of the qualities I pride myself on is being a really personable and approachable individual who also has proven strengths in creating, communicating, and designing impactful concepts to tight deadlines. My past experiences span amendments to illustrative artwork for an events company, website wireframe redesigns and amendments, brand identity design for a start-up, qualitative and quantitative project work, customer services, analytics, fine art practices, and data design work. Thanks to my experience with data, I have a great command and understanding of digital data collection and visualisation software in addition to key design tools. Throughout my career, I've always employed a warm and open approach to communication and collaboration. Finally, I have a great eye for detail and attention-grabbing visual design. Overall, I'm seeking out new junior and/or internship opportunities to contribute and nurture my graphic design skills. Feel free to pop me a message if you'd like to chat.

Inspired by his ground breaking, feel good coming of age movies, this concept was quickly shaped by the awkward, humourous and quirky tones to Hughes’ film genre. The colour palette aims to invoke a light hearted, comedic tone, coupled with awkward type orientations and treatments, to really give the reader a sense of the youthful akwardness so often depicted throughout his films.

    Currently working on amendments for Kitty's client website design: Key tools used are Sketch and Invision. So far I have been involved in gathering inspiration and sketching out new ideas for key module redesigns. I have implemented those designs across multiple pages to tight deadlines, adhering to the client and Senior Designer's feedback throughout. In order to keep my work up to standard and on track, I've kept up consistent and clear communication between myself, the Senior Designer and the Project Manager.

    Graphic DesignShillington College
    London, United Kingdom
    I participated in a the 3 month full-time course with Shillington College beginning September 2020 and graduating in December 2020. Here I learnt how to master Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, along with Sketch to tackle multiple print and digital student briefs throughout the course. I gained fast and effective experience in time management, communication of design thinking, meeting deadlines for 1-2 day or 1 week briefs, conceptual thinking and the visualisation process overall. Having built up a large base of projects, I selected 6 main projects near the end of the course to perfect and display in my portfolio to show off what I have achieved.
