During my time at Draw (formerly known as Last Exit) I: • Built on my existing knowledge of digital across more eCommerce based sites • Developed my design skills and attention to detail • Worked on second screen projects and kept a close eye on developing design trends • Developed my understanding of user experience and design, including creating wireframes • Worked closely with developers on a parallax scroll site and learnt a great deal from them, including basic CSS and HTML as well as developing an interest in the frontier of digital design
I moved to Biscuit as I wanted to develop my animation and motion graphics skills and work for a broader clients base within the advertising industry. As it was a small agency I had the opportunity to work on a huge variety of projects and develop a wide range of skills. • Helped develop creative concepts for advertising campaigns • Worked on several print campaigns for Silvikrin (P&G), creating a new style aimed at younger audiences and later setting the style for the POS • Developed my motion graphics skills and learnt about designing for TV • Ran a pitch to rebrand the Foxy Bingo website keeping in mind user journey and experience as well as digital presence, content and strategy, during which I managed a team of freelance designers.
After exhibiting my work at D&AD I was headhunted for the role as Junior Designer, as it was a small agency I had the opportunity to learn about all aspects of digital design. • Developed my animation skills, working on a number of high profile projects with The Body Shop • Worked on several social media campaigns, designing banner ads and Facebook pages as well as micro-sites and game graphics • Learnt about digital strategy and planning • Worked closely with developers and was taught best practice techniques for web design • Developed a passion for digital which I maintain, always keeping up to date with the latest design trends
