About me

I'm a graphic designer for Autodesk at their Birmingham UK office. I’m originally from the north east of England, and I studied for my BA (Hons) Graphic Design at the University of Cumbria in Carlisle. I love making things, and I love science too. For me graphic design was pretty much the perfect amalgamation of art and science - there are theories and best practices to stick to, but the rules can be bent and broken. Besides graphic design, I enjoy sewing, drawing, photography, David Attenborough documentaries, cars, visiting castles and museums, tinkering with PCs, and other such nerdy past times.

Work history

Currently

Graphic Designer

Autodesk

Jun 2016
  • Birmingham, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • I work closely with teams both nationally and across the globe to produce assets for various Autodesk products and campaigns. Assets include but are not limited to: websites; animated web banners; exhibition design; leaflet/brochure design; responsive email template designs. As well as designing collaboratively on projects I am also able to work independently, such as when I had the responsibility of designing an interactive booklet for a large EU project. This was presented to stakeholders of the project including governments of Europe. Working to both longer and tighter deadlines, and able to manage unexpected additions, I am able to prioritise work and manage my time efficiently.
