About me

In a recent role I assisted in coordinating an 11,000-attendee summer festival, my involvement included curating a memorable and entertaining experience for a large scope of people. It was a great a success, with a spike of 11% in ticket sales. My interest lies within the creative industry, finding creative solutions to problems, and applying the digital marketing experience I’ve acquired by coordinating a large scale event, alongside my qualifications in communication in visual arts, into the creative industry.

Education

2016

B.A Hons. Illustration

University Of Brighton

Sep 2013 - Jun 2016
  • Brighton, United Kingdom
  • In the course of my Illustrative studies, I made use of a range of media to create work in order to communicate concepts to an audience. My approach is collaborative using videography, print, collage, and photography. On site we had full use of all studio facilities to produce work, I had most frequent use of the computer suite and I am familiar with Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, and Premiere Pro at a professional level. My peers and I established student led projects such as the coordinating and marketing of our Degree Show in Hackney, London, as well as the publication of our Brighton Show 2016 catalogue. I've also had work displayed at the Blackmark Awards, Brighton 2015.
