About me
After attending Leeds Beckett University and completing a first class BA Honours in Graphic Arts and Design I have now been working in the industry for 3 years. During this time, I have developed my portfolio and understanding of the industry, suppliers and printers, whilst maintaining my eleven years of customer service experience and applying it to client relationships. My conceptual thinking paired with experimental, yet systematic approach to live projects, ensures that all possible avenues are explored, creating bespoke outcome for clients. When approaching a project I believe strongly in open discussion and feedback throughout projects to ensure that I am creating the best solution to the clients problem, whilst stretching my abilities to ensure that I go above and beyond for the studio I am working within. I am an extremely motivated individual who strives for the success of the business I am working within, attending networking events and exhibitions in Sheffield and Manchester. My capabilities to work alone, within a design team and collaborate with website developers means that projects of all sizes are all met with the same high standards and focus across many platforms.

     - Sheffield, United KingdomInternship
    Partaking in an 8 month paid internship at Dust, I worked closely with the team to create a number of projects, from arts publications/ exhibitions to pharmaceutical packaging design and conference materials. For several months I was the main point of contact for the creative director situated in NYC, for design tasks and also liaising with international clients. I applied my knowledge of print to Dust’s website design, which can be seen live today. My interest in social media management and marketing led me to manage the Instagram account, increasing followers by 30% over a period of 5 months.
