About me

I’m Kim, a London-based Creative Designer with an Architecture BA degree who has now gained experience as an Architectural Designer Assistant. I am highly interested in using my skills towards a role requiring creative direction. I am driven by the process of turning initial sketches into worked up drawings that are eventually modelled or tested, and brought to life. With experience in the architectural world, I have a diverse passion for all ends of the creative spectrum, including art, fashion, photography and design. Following my work at two architecture firms, I am still happily open to many other departments of the design world, and am particularly interested in integrating global communications, marketing and social media as well as fashion within my design work. I thoroughly enjoy working alone or within a team, and fully believe communication skills are important in the working world to drive a team or company to success, something which I have experienced in all my working environments.
