About me

I am a highly creative, driven and flexible graphic designer, with a proven record of delivering accurate and unique solutions to design briefs in an educational and professional capacity. I enjoy developing projects from initial idea to final delivery using creative ‘out of the box thinking’ while ensuring that the work is appropriate and delivered within agreed time scales. I am capable of working effectively solo but prefer to work as part of a team, bouncing ideas off one another to promote a more creative, exciting and focused environment. In 2016 I made the decision to change career direction from my job as Stock Control Team Administrator and complete a BA Hons in Graphic Design. I have always strived towards greater things in my life, and my passion for design helped me focus on my final goal, a position in the design industry. I took a huge risk by choosing to change career paths and now I am looking to continue my on this path and work my way to bigger things and positions. Education, skills & experiences are important, but mean nothing without ambition.
