About me
I’m a graphic designer with a background in print design, and increasingly digital design. I am interested in design opportunities that are both challenging yet rewarding, allowing me to diversify as a designer and attain knowledge and skills in new areas. In July 2014 I completed a post-graduate Certificate with Distinction in Web Design and Development at Birkbeck: University of London, where I learnt to hand code a website, with consideration to UX best practice, and use my design experience for the optimum UI approach. In 2012 I graduated with an MA in Graphic Design at the London College of Communication, where as part of my MA I chose to focus on the impact of print design on the environment. As such I am passionate about design that is mindful of materials, resources, supply chains and production ethics, all of which are key factors to improving a business’ CSR image. My other passions are art and literature, having graduated with a BA in Fine Art with English Literature at Lancaster University. I enjoy working with similarly-minded individuals who are passionate about arts and culture, as well as environmental and social issues.
