About me

 

I am currently completing a Masters Degree in European Jewish History at the Leo Baeck Institute and Queen Mary University of London and last summer I graduated from Queen Mary with a 2;1 degree in English. Throughout my time at university I have been extensively involved with student media both as a writer and editor. In my final undergraduate year I became Editor in Chief of our students' union arts and culture magazine, CUB, where I was responsible for the production of four print issues and a steady stream of online content. I continued to assist on the magazine during my MA year, allowing me to focus upon developing my layout design skills further. I have had experience with developing a brand image through graphics and social media presence, as well as working to satisfy a client brief. I am always trying to push my work further, so I keep up to date with current popular magazine layout design trends, as well as more niche publications. In my spare time I sporadically write on my blog as an attempt to establish a young female voice in the area of WWII military history, and trawl Instagram for typography inspiration.
