Working freelance has allowed me to look into different avenues of creativity and work with people and brands that I admire, which is really important to me. I am able to use a broad range of skills from meticulous organisation to creative design to efficiency and effective communication, allowing me to creatively problem solve and achieve memorable results. I help to produce photoshoots and events within the Homeware and Fashion industries and set design for We Built This City, a creative souvenir shop on Carnaby Street.

I traveled to Nepal to aid in the clear up and rebuild of homes and communities affected by the devastating earthquakes earlier in the year. I quickly threw myself into as many projects as I could, clearing house debris, teaching art in an Internally Displaced Persons camp and camping out in the mountains to build a rehab centre for those injured in the earthquakes. I was asked to become a Team Leader after being able to boost morale on site and showing a good work ethic
Interning at Livingetc was not just an eye opening window into the fast paced world of magazine production but also a window into the changing world of print production and its transition to the internet. Assisting the differing needs of all members of the style team meant I had to effectively time manage and efficiently prioritise what was asked of me. Here I learnt the value of my strong communication skills and the importance of a good working relationship.
Korla is a contemporary interior fabric company based in London. My role as Production Assistant could be broken down into three parts, Graphic Designer, Events Coordinator and Fabric Production Assistant. Here I was able to assist in all stages of the creative production process, from initial research stages to the final release of a collection. I helped storyboard and coordinate photoshoots and I used art working and retouching skills on images I had styled. I managed all aspects of branding design, including print requirements, and fabric production including liaising with suppliers and printers and co-managed press relations and social media channels.

A heavily graphic design based degree, we focused on elements of consumer culture and worked with brands such as Unilever, Boots, Universal Works and Boxfresh to practice creative communication whilst staying on brand.
