About me

I am a versatile creative designer who specialises in graphic design, with a broad supporting skill set that encompasses illustration, printmaking and motion design. After a successful period of teaching design alongside my own personal practice, I am now looking to work on new projects as part of a creative team and to challenge myself in new ways. After working full-time as a graphic designer, my passion for design and interacting with people drew me to teaching. My career as a lecturer has shown me how to inspire and project manage large groups of people whilst also working alongside a team as part of a larger organisation. I have managed tight deadlines and juggled budgets whilst providing a critical yet supportive eye to the work of my students. I have done this whilst maintaining and developing my own practice as a printmaker and freelance designer as well as leading internal design projects for the various institutions. As an ambitious, outgoing individual, I strive to achieve highly both in my academic and professional life. When confronted with a problem, I favour getting hands on with the challenge, working logically through it until I am happy that the successful outcome meets my high standards. I am a hard-working individual with an eye for successful design. I can be left to work on my own to produce work to a high-standard but also enjoy working as part of a team. I have excellent time management skills and I am able to multi-task successfully.
