About me

 

I'm a British Visual Communication graduate from Loughborough University's School of the Arts, currently based in Sydney. Recent professional experience has included corporate publication design at CBRE Asia Pacific, broadcast animation at Sky News and website content management and marketing at the University of New South Wales, Australia. I am proficient in Photoshop, InDesign, website content management systems and various animation programs. My university specialisation was in children's storybook illustration and cover design, which I continue to enjoy and consider as a potential career path.

  • I joined Sky’s in-house graphics team once-twice weekly over the course of my last year at university. There I coordinated and collaborated with the team of designers to create imaginative information graphics for news stories, which aired on Sky News that day. The nature of these news show graphics meant meeting high-pressured deadlines within a few hours. Research into specialised topics was often required in order to deliver a clear and accurate product to global audiences.
