About me
I'm a new and 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 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. Additionally, 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.

    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.
