About me
Graduated this year from the University of Kent with a degree in Digital Arts BA (Hons). I have a keen interest in film and digital design and aspire to work in the creative industry. Throughout my degree, I have learnt many skills and gained experience in various areas including: graphic design/illustration, motion graphics, film, compositing/editing, animation, 3D modelling, websites and photography. I have had regular practice in using Adobe software, including: Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro and After Effects. As well as 3D software including, Autodesk Maya and 3ds Max. As a recent graduate, I am eager to utilise my skills gained over the past three years, to continue to build on my knowledge and start my career.
  • You Only Live Once
    Please visit the website here: http://rlj20.student.eda.kent.ac.uk/ This was my final year project at University. You Only Live Once is an interactive web animation designed to educate young adults about how bad lifestyle habits can impact long term health. The viewer can select to play as "Max" or "Mollie" to follow their journey through life, making the choices for them. Using fun illustrations and a comical aspect, You Only Live Once aims to engage and entertain the audience whilst communicating a serious message. My main role was Illustrator/Design. I created all the assets and collaborated on the concept, storyboard, script and other responsibilities in this project. Collaborator: Rob Jones, whose main role was Web Developer/Web Animation. Collaborated on other responsibilities.
  • Tempus
    Tempus is an experimental film made at University. The theme was "time". Using a high frame-rate camera, we decided to edit our footage by playing around with different speeds and direction of time. The audio used is a backwards version of the original track. My roles included contribution to the concept and filming, and co-editing in post production. Collaborators: James Jueno, Hannah Quigley and Luke Phillips.
  • How to Prepare for a Coupon Shop
    During my summer internship with Couponshop, I was assigned to create a "Step by step: How to prepare for a coupon shop" animation using infographics. I was responsible for most of this project, designing concepts, creating the storyboard and animating. I also created some illustrations where necessary. Collaborators: Billy Sawyer - Head of Design, most illustrations.
