          • I started my own freelance design service named ‘emmacedesign’, of which I have clients come to me to design specific graphic outcomes ranging from leaflets to business cards to logos and more. I meet with the client’s needs to complete their design, communicating efficiently to create a professional outcome. This has allowed me to gain the experience I need to work effectively as an individual.

Key responsibilities included: • When designing I followed the company branding guidelines, target audience and demographic as well as making sure layout, typography and colour scheme was appropriate to make a great impact on the objective of the design work. • I produced high quality print work, ensuring that this was print ready with correct measurements, bleed, margins and trim marks. • I managed the event floor plan by structuring the exhibitor stands to their dimensions, making sure that the exhibitors were placed in their appropriate area suited to their profession. • I maintained the company’s media and marketing, by liaising with clients over the telephone and email regarding conference talks, exhibition stands, company profile listings and media packs. • Updating and adding content to the company’s social media platforms was also a key role in promoting the events, as well as designing and putting together mailer campaigns using ‘Mailchimp’. • I attended the RISE4Disability events with the event organisation team to set up and manage the event day.
