About me

 

I’m 21 and I’ve just finished my degree in Falmouth. I’m a designer and my interests lie in creating packaging, branding and identities. I’m looking to do various design placements in order to refine my skills and find a working environment that i can thrive in. I’m inquisitive by nature and I agree that there’s no such thing as a stupid question (I have been known to ask a few myself). I believe this helps me as a designer, as I don’t hold back when unearthing what’s at the heart of the brief and allowing that to form thoughts and ideas. I think that discovery through observation is important, I like briefs that are not what they seem at first and enjoying finding beauty and insight in things that appear ordinary. I find solving problems, tweaking ideas and simply just creating very rewarding. I think my personality shows through my work for being positive, playful and thoughtful. When I’m not designing I’m spending time with people that matter, trying new recipes, talking about music and having a laugh. I operate best when I have too much to do and like being outside. I spend as much time as I can in the sea, on my bike, and on my feet. I’m laid back and open-minded and really looking forward to working and learning with new people in new environments.
