As the founder and editor of Vulva Magazine, I oversaw all aspects of the magazine. From signing off ideas for articles and photoshoots, deciding the paper stock of the physical publication, creating the website and social media; making sure content is accurate and on-brand with Vulva's motto. I dealt with the administrative tasks, ran the schedule of photoshoots and article deadlines, along with arranging, undertaking and writing the interviews for said articles. I produced all content for the magazine's pages, from fashion editorials to articles, from mood boards and concepts to unique, inspirational photoshoots. Using InDesign, Lightroom, Photoshop and Premiere Pro, I created layouts from scratch to make the images and words fit the page perfectly and tie the whole magazine together. It was a great experience to make this happen and I loved every minute of it, especially collaborating and finding incredible women with their wonderful stories to tell.
As a Field Communications Officer, I was given specific targets to create and produce content for Frontier (The Society for Environmental Exploration) on their social media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) and blog; talking about the conservation work being carried out in Tenerife. I also filmed, directed and produced videos to promote the project. I was liaising with the volunteers and field staff on location as well as the journalism and marketing staff at Frontier’s HQ in London. The content created for the Whale and Dolphin Conservation project was about connecting people around the world to promote what Frontier was doing to preserve the natural habitats of the whales, dolphins and land animals in Tenerife. It was incredibly rewarding to know that I was truly making a difference to the world and it opened up my mind to the dangers of what humans are doing to the planet to cause devastation to animals on land and in the ocean.
I worked with the director/creator of Pepper Your Talk, running all decisions and contributing towards creating promotional strategies to gain traffic on the Pepper Your Talk website and all social media accounts. I created the weekly Newsletter on MailChimp and planned social media content all the while keeping the brand image and tone in mind. With these responsibilities, I was constantly reading fashion magazines and websites daily to expand my knowledge of the events happening within the fashion industry. This led to creating weekly comprehensive lists of article ideas to keep content fresh and up-to-date. I kept a running list of people of interest to feature such as fashion insiders, bloggers, entrepreneurs etc. With the events, I personally created videos and utilized my photography skills to make a diary of the event which I further promoted on social media to gain more publicity and get more coverage of the incredible events and people involved, including Henry Holland and other various speakers.
I represented my University to prospective students on high profle events.. It was crucial to use my creative knowledge and experience of life as a UCA student to encourage people to choose UCA.
With A Room To Room Interiors, I built successful social strategies that increased their brand awareness and promoted customer engagement, driving web traffic to engage clients with their design and decorating business.
The MA Photography course approaches photography as an expanded visual discipline. As a student I was encouraged to confidently produce complex and extended photographic projects. I have been mentored to engage with experimental and speculative approaches to making creative work with special attention to the dissemination, exhibition and publication of photographic work. I've taken risks, explored and developed my interest, alongside exchanging, debating and discussing ideas as a collective group of students on this incredibly exciting course. There's a strong emphasis on the course on publication, which extended my skills from my BA, further empowering me to find more creative ways to disseminate my work beyond the academic context and into the public domain.
The BA Fashion Media and Promotion course ensured a skilled, hardworking graduate who has become an innovative communicator. Constantly generating innovative ideas, with a fully-equipped set of technical and business skills for fast-paced creative industries. From image creation, editorial and publications; through to film, photography and event design by launching and curating promotional events I have built a strong business acumen. I bring an enthusiastic and determined approach to creating written content on various digital platforms, whether PR or journalism or be social strategies and virtual communication to help promote brands and clients' needs through innovative concepts and solutions.
