    This has been my longest post as a designer. I joined with 2 years experience and started to build into a middle weight. I have more direct contact with clients to manage projects from start to finish. A lot of the disciplines are packaging design, internal comms for Tesco and small branding projects. Most of the projects are focused on the food industry, retail and suppliers to large supermarkets. Clients I’ve worked with include, Tesco, Fudge Kitchen and Waitrose.
