About me

I have been working as a designer for two years. I graduated from the University for the Creative Arts, where I studied Graphic Design: Visual Communication. While I was here I learnt how to develop my skills in design and developed the confidence to put my own take on any given design brief. Every brief I work on has the same goal: to produce stylish, intelligent and interesting work. I believe great communication is essential to an engaging and fulfilling life. It underpins how we feel, think and express ourselves every day. This is why I love being a designer. Since beginning my graduate career, I have worked at a Marketing and PR agency as a Junior Designer, working with multiple clients. I have recently progressed to the role of Creative Designer, which has meant I am able to work more independently. I am currently looking for an opportunity to further progress in my career, in addition to honing my skills as a designer. Both during my time at university and the early stages of my career, I have established the opportunity to conduct creative analysis and design best-fit solutions across different creative channels, such as print, digital and animation. In addition to this I have developed a good understanding of how great strategy can be utilised asa springboard to clear, creative, high quality content. I am a creativeself-starter, who provides strong attention to detail and design quality. I believe perfectionism and innovative design are key factors in creating a high standard of work and I apply this belief to every project I work on. As a designer, I have found that I am able to work to a brief, analyse and implement the best design solution while working under the pressure of producing the highest standard, completing the work to strict deadlines and always fulfilling the expectations of both my clients and my colleagues. While meeting all targeted deadlines and expectations, as well as always fitting in time to make a round of tea for other team members.
