About me

Hello, I'm Laura Gelston and I have recently completed a Bdes (Hons) in Graphic Design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee and am now looking for a job so I can kick start my career! I have a strong working knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite - specifically Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop. However, I have recently begun using After Effects and Premiere Pro in my 3rd and 4th year of university and am keen to keep learning and upping my skills in this area. It's the thought process in design that is one of the many things I enjoy. From the initial research, brainstorming and idea generation to then deciding which direction to take it in to create the final concept. I feel like this process allows me to experiment and pick up new skills and I enjoy exploring all areas of graphic design, from branding, editorial, typography and enjoy keeping up to date with the latest news in the design world. To save me writing too much a few of my favourite things that keep me occupied out with the world of design include travel, running, rugby, beer and coffee.
