About me

 

A former Project Analyst with 2 years experience in the creative industry looking to transition into a role in research and insights. Ideally, in a product design, strategic innovation, market research, branding, marketing or another integrated creative agency. In my most recent role at Native Design, I took every opportunity to increase my direct involvement in projects and collaborating with and learning from creative teams. This included supporting design strategists with research and writing for a project kick-off and a new product development. Having taken courses in Insights for Innovation and Research Methods, I have continued to develop my research, insight and writing skills over the past 6 months by writing several innovation and trend related articles, case studies and a presentation. My overarching goal is to be able to provide strategic support and insight for various innovative projects.
