Work history

Currently

Sales & Marketing Manager

Mikado Foods

Jun 2014
  • - Project Manager for our space in the IFE show - the largest food event in the UK. I am designing the stand, organising construction, being resourceful with the budget and marketing our brand pre-show. I have created visuals for this project along with presentation boards and mock ups. I have also created print-ready digital artwork for the walls of the stand and met every deadline for the event with ease. The creative production process has allowed me to communicate my ideas and design journey to the UK team and Head Office in Berlin, being flexible with any changing requirements they may have. - Alongside this I am also currently leading the design and creation of the catalogue which will show our current products and recipe ideas along with product coding and pricing. I am solely responsible for the editing and preparation of the catalogue so it is print ready which has greater increased my understanding of typography, layouts and all fundamental principles of print and artwork. I was also able to use my photography skills to take product pictures. -Everyday roles include booking in deliveries and organising the transportation and shipment of food products. -Meeting and negotiating with clients. -Developing different marketing strategies to increase the popularity and awareness of the company including developing a website, networking and organising events.
