About me

Hi, I'm Jamie; a BSc Product Design graduate based in Liverpool, Chester and South Wirral. I am excited about developing & demonstrating my skill & ambition as I begin my career as a professional designer. I have always been an art & design hobbyist. Outside of full-time studies or work I like to try my hand at any & all art, craft & design disciplines as a means of self-development & expression. I have a keen interest in art, history, culture & photography; in which I find energy & inspiration. I have a year of experience working full-time in the role of CAD Designer for one of the UK's leading spa manufacturers; gaining a wealth of experience in the field of bespoke commercial design. I have been the lead designer for a number of leisure industry projects, working with clients based both in the UK & overseas. Please take a moment to look at some of my academic, commercial & independent work & feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or comments via LinkedIn, my portfolio or email.
