About me
Hello! I'm a 2019 graduate from the Arts University Bournemouth with a First Class Honours degree in Graphic Design. With a passion for motion design and illustration, I am looking to pursue my creative career as an animator. My design style and skillset are eclectic and adaptable, and I am always seeking to learn new techniques within the world of motion. Most of my personal work uses the power of design to address environmental and social issues to illustrate their importance and make a difference by making people think about their impact on the world, as this is something I am very passionate about.
Projects
  • Passing Conversations
    Passing ConversationsI was extremely honoured that my animation Passing Conversations, which explores facing fears and concerns in the run up to death, was the winner of the NHS England Award in the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) Student Design Awards 2018/19.
  • Second Chance
    Second ChanceSecond Chance is a campaign that educates users on better food management. This interactive campaign works through an app that functions alongside specially designed food packaging labels. These labels are scanned into the app, similarly to scanning QR codes, to reveal innovative and alternative tips and tricks on how to reduce your overall household food waste.
