Hello, my name is Donia, I am a Freelance Creative Designer currently based in London. I specialise in Graphic, Print, Digital and Motion Design. Currently I am working as a freelance designer with BBC Creative and I hold just shy of 10 years experience in the design industry. I worked full time with the BBC before going freelance where I worked within a team of multi-disciplined designers specialising in static and motion brand graphics for all print, broadcast and digital platforms across all BBC Channels stretching from entertainment, to drama, sport, documentaries, or news. Projects I have worked on at the BBC range from simple typographical captions to full trail builds, quick turnaround social assets to interactive social/digital experiences, campaign logos and print and digital out of home experiences on national and global scales. Previous companies I have worked for include Aberdeen Asset Management (now Aberdeen Standard Investments), Search Consultancy and Lynnet Leisure where I worked as a Graphic Designer. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Applied Graphics Technology and Multimedia Design from Glasgow Caledonian University and a HND in Graphic Design from Aberdeen College.Locked Pro Plan feature
