About me
Hello! I’m Claudia, a recent Graphic Design graduate from Falmouth University. I am an enthusiastic designer, motivated by a desire to beautifully craft innovative ideas which solve real-life problems. Even though I have spent the last 3 years studying in sunny Cornwall, I am a northern girl at heart, originally from a small town in Lancashire, but soon heading to the big city to excitingly kickstart my career! I enjoy photography and experience design – however, my real passion lies in branding and editorial. When I am not trapped behind my computer screen, I can be regularly found drinking plenty of tea, going on long countryside walks or watching Disney films, which I tend to sing-along to, loudly!

  • Falmouth University, BA(Hons) Graphic DesignThe course aims to produce adaptive and curious thinkers who can respond to the continually evolving societal and business needs of our contemporary world with purposeful and innovative graphic design solutions. Personal development and direction is nurtured through our studio community, so they can build the reflective, intellectual, critical and craft skills appropriate for their idea and its delivery; to provoke change and challenge the creative industry and the subject's future. https://www
  • JoyFal DeliveriesBefore third year began, our tutors set us a collaborative brief to raise £100 in a week. Together, Claudia, Emma, Mollie and I decided to push this further and make another goal - to spread some joy around Falmouth (and beyond). By creating some postcards, we began a delivery service to encourage people to brighten up someone else's day by sending handwritten postcards to friends and family around the UK.

Work history
    Graphic Design InternPearlfisher
     - London, United KingdomInternship
    I spent two weeks at Pearlfisher where I had the opportunity to work with major clients, engaging in branding and identity, packaging design, typography and illustration design. I played a key role in designing packaging concepts, brand identities and generating ideas for a live brief, which was later presented and pitched to the clients. Additionally, I gained basic knowledge regarding 3D printing, modelling and visualising on CAD applications.

    Student Bursary InternDesign Bridge
     - London, United KingdomInternship
    As a part of Design Bridge's Student Bursary Scheme, I spent four weeks at their London Studio where I had the opportunity to work with major clients including Fortnum & Mason. I was given a range of live briefs to work on, where I engaged in branding and identity, motion graphics, typographic treatments and details, packaging and 3D visualisation. During my time, I was made to feel like a member of the team. I created a range of research and reference documents to present to clients, participated in all studio meetings and confidently articulated my ideas for an eclectic mix of projects to Senior Designers and Creative Directors, which were pitched to clients. I was also made responsible and given the task to independently work on a live brief and present professionally to clients. From this experience, I have been able to continue this project alongside my studies, in collaboration with Design Bridge. This has allowed me to gain an understanding of how to work with clients and respond to feedback accordingly, preparing me for a future in the industry.
