About me

 

Having a persistently optimistic attitude has naturally led me to create opportunities for myself to study design through positive change in recent years. Firstly through researching humour as a persuasive tool in commodities advertising, and then through co-founding a creatively nostalgic magazine: marketed as a story book for adults. More recently, I developed a project on generating content by developing a campaign on happiness through experience. These projects were key factors in developing a diverse collaborative skill set. Where possible I also attend events and workshops to further inform my practice and inspire new though. I will bring an enthusiastically pragmatic perspective to any discussion, informed by genuine interest in a diverse creative industry. I am very adaptable and come equipped with many necessary transferable skills to be an extremely dynamic, creative member of your team. I have adapted to a variety of responsibilities in creative fields and presently I hope to keep advancing my capabilities. A career in the creative industry would give me the opportunity to apply my experience, interests and education to design that can have a positive impact.
