    Designer & AnimatorTrue North
     - Manchester, United KingdomFull Time
    As a designer at True North I helped create campaigns for companies such as Bruntwood (the biggest office space provider in Manchester) showcasing the range of spaces they had available with our 'Just Ask' campaign, instructional videos for SpringerNature, teaching scientists on the publishing standards of the company and social media posts for Lego Education which would convince teachers of the effectiveness Lego can have in the classroom. In between this work I provided support to the National Trust, re-branded local charities such as Manchester’s ‘Gaddum’ and St. Helen’s ‘Heart of Glass’. My work covered a whole range of skills and industries making me a versatile designer.
