I’m a Junior Designer, and have worked for over a year at a London-based branding agency, on high-profile rebrands and campaigns. As well as having agency-level design experience, I have split my time working on strategic projects, involving brand hierarchy, user-flows, workshops and stakeholder interviews. My interest in users and their motivations can be seen across previous work. In my final year, I won a D&AD Pencil for a BBC UX&D brief, and wrote my dissertation on a human-centred design topic: Designing for Distraction. I developed this into a two-part podcast, interviewing creative leader Steve Selzer while interning at DesignStudio. Outside of the office I’ve been working hard to gather a robust knowledge of UX processes: reading experience design literature to understand research, ideation and prototyping processes, attending lectures, completing online courses, and learning key tools like Sketch, InVision and Axure. I believe my background in brand design and strategy, and a proven curiosity in user-centred design, with an ability to pick up skills and processes quickly, make me an ideal candidate for an entry-level experience design or service design role, where I can hit the ground running.Locked Pro Plan feature
I joined Someone, a London-based branding agency, as a junior designer with a an interest in brand strategy. Gained a strong understanding of brand process, and learnt a huge amount about communicating well with various internal and external project stakeholders. My work involved: Designing and pitching creative routes, creating brand assets, logos and campaigns. Learning how to tell compelling stories, and sell-in ideas. Experience working with and presenting to high-profile clients including the Natural History Museum, Three, Nuffield Health, and the House of Lords. Competitor research, audits and analysis. Taking initiative by recognising new staff members lacked key information on joining. Designed and implemented an internal on-boarding programme (named SomeOneNew); updating and iterating company processes based on feedback from new and current employees. Asking to work on strategy briefs, giving me the opportunity to conduct stakeholder interviews and workshops, understand and refine brand architecture and develop decision trees; most notably for The Prince’s Trust. It was through this work: understanding the company’s structure, creating tools, and considering how they would be used, that I began to consider Service and User Experience design as an exciting next step.
Worked on creative routes, brand assets and campaigns for Depop, The Champions League, TotalJobs and Revolut, as well as: Participating in strategy research and stakeholder interviews Producing a 2-part podcast for the studio, about the subject of my dissertation Design and Distraction, which included interviewing Steve Selzer (Frog, Airbnb), about designing friction back into digital experiences.
