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!

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.
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.
I spent two weeks at Supple Studio where I had the opportunity to work with major clients including The Royal Mail. I was given live briefs to work on, where I engaged in branding and identity, motion graphics, editorial, typographic treatments and illustration design. During my time, I created a range of research and reference documents to present to clients, participated in studio meetings and confidently articulated my ideas for an eclectic mix of projects, which were then taken to pitches. It was an eye-opening insight into the design industry and a wonderful opportunity to get hands-on, and learn how a studio works, from how the brief is presented, to the presentation and discussions with clients, software used, and finally - all the way through to receiving feedback.
Graduated with a First Class Honours in Graphic Design.
