About me

I am extremely passionate about Art and Design and would like to find a position where I can not only gain a thorough understanding of the design industry but also allows me to interject my own creative ideas through hard work and learning new skills. I am very much a creative ideas person and enjoy taking these ideas, collaborating with client or colleagues through to a finished product that exceeds expectations. While working as a Freelance designer over the past year I have gained design experience in a variety outlets and media from point of sales at Oxfam to event design for a festival. While studying for my MA I took the lead role in the design and media branding for the Art and Science Degree Show. I like to stay up to date with new trends and ideas through regular visits to exhibitions, reading relevant publications and trending ideas online. I look forward to presenting my work with a view to finding a place where I can contribute and expand my design experience.
