        Work history

        2017

        Junior Graphic Design

        Intermarketing Agency

        Oct 2016 - Jun 2017
        • Leeds, United Kingdom
        • Internship
        • At Intermarketing, I have worked alongside global brands such as adidas, Reebok, Bupa and the NSPCC to create a variety of work from concept to finishing touches, including flagship store installation designs and gift with purchase concepts for adidas, pop-up store concepts for Reebok and print and web communication for an array of clients across different sectors. A favourite project of mine was taking design lead on a successful pitch for Missguided.com. Much of my work, however, involved typesetting and layout, two areas I have worked hard to develop in. On top of this, I managed an area of internal agency communications, organising and taking professional headshots of all new staff members.

        Junior Graphic Design

        Magpie Creative Communications

        Sep 2016 - Oct 2016
        • Leeds, United Kingdom
        • Internship
        • During my time at Magpie, I improved my knowledge of the processes of design from digital conception to physical installation by producing signage for Bagel Nash stores and installing the signs across different locations. I also got hands-on experience creating and painting decor and props for new store openings across the country. I additionally helped bring brands, including Leeds Varsity, from print to social media, creating content which could adapt to several outputs.

        Junior Graphic Design

        Thompson Brand Partners

        Aug 2016 - Sep 2016
        • Leeds, United Kingdom
        • Internship
        • I improved my professional illustration skills by developing characters for the MindMate brand within the NHS, helping to increase character diversity (something I consider very important). I also worked closely with the digital team to help develop wireframes and web proposals for Thompson’s internal brand which improved my understanding of how to design flexibly for web – skills I wish to further develop over the next few years. I also got a chance to further my experience in food styling and photography, which I really enjoyed.
