    Completing a year a consultancy based environment, I worked within a small design team in creative and conceptual tasks, generating new consumer products and packaging. Working with entrepreneurs, through to large scale Fast Moving Consumer Goods clients has meant that I have had first-hand experience of seeing a project’s entire life-cycle, along with the necessary management, communication, effort and skill required for one to succeed. Working efficiently in a fast-paced environment developed my ability to adapt to constantly changing consumer and market factors, which in turn showed that I have excellent time-management and multitasking skills.
