About me

 

I am passionate about design being a tool to implement positive changes in the world and that socially conscious designs or products do not need to be kept in the realm of ‘charity’ but can become independent and financially sustainable ventures. I enjoy taking a cross-disciplinary approach to my work, being interested in all aspects from research gathering and analysis, to ideation, to hands-on making - as well as a love for both print and digital. Currently I am looking to gain experience in a variety of settings as I believe that a broad and varied understanding of the industry allows for more exciting and informed designs, and brings about much richer concepts.

Work history

Currently

Student & Freelancer

Freelance

Aug 2013
  • Studying at London College of Communication, I am now on a year in industry between my 2nd and final year and am looking for internships. I have worked on various projects from branding of a new company with logo designs, animations and presentation for a TEDx Talk, creation of business cards and logos, leaflet designs for various projects etc.

2016

Graphic Design Intern

Foster Partners

Nov 2015 - Jan 2016
  • As an intern in the Communications departement I was able to gain an insight into all things visual within the organisiation. As Fosters are able to produce most things in-house from models to books to films to huge presentation boards, I was able to witness all the different departments and how they collaborate. One of the main projects I worked on was the re-designing of their project brochures and learning how to use the Digital Publishing Suite within InDesign to create a beautiful interactive portolio to showcase their work to their clients. I have been asked to return for a month in February.

2015

Creative Intern

Livity

Sep 2015 - Nov 2015
  • Livity+ is a vibrant youth marketing agency in Brixton whose purpose is to ‘benefit the lives of young people by putting them at the heart of everything that they do’. I was able to be apart of briefings and brain-storming sessions, where one of my own ideas was chosen and developed further. I was able to learn key elements of the marketing world but within a ‘socially responsible’ context.

2015

Design & Print Intern

Fingerprint FO

Sep 2015 - Oct 2015
  • As a designer I am not only interested in purely 2D digital work but believe it is essential to have a broad knowledge of the industry to be able to have rich and exciting ideas. During my time at Fingerprint FO+ I was able to gain an insight into the print industry and learn more about the processes that are possible and what can be accomplished within certain budgets. I worked on live projets, seeing them through from start to finish, as well as some of my own personal projects. I was given the freedom to expreiment and discover things for myself.

2015

Youth Worker

JYSEP

Aug 2013 - Sep 2015
  • Last year I was able to start up a youth group in a neighbourhood in South London. Those who help me run the group are all volunteers and we outreached in the area, speaking to locals and seeing what they needed. The group aims to empower young people to take control of their education, to strengthen their spiritual virtues, and to develop their powers of expression.

2015

Sales Assistant

Arcadia

Aug 2011 - May 2015
  • I have worked within Arcadia, the Uk’s largest fashion retailer, for almost four years. Having been loyal to the company, I worked as a sales advisor at both Dorothy Perkins and more recently at Topshop. I rose to positions of responsibility and was the lead account opener and sponsor of e-digital feedback. I worked confidently on the tills and became a till mentor to support and teach those who were new and not so confident. I enjoyed interacting with customers and trying to solve difficult situations which led me to reach my ‘advanced level’.

2013

Design Assistant

City A.M

Sep 2013 - Aug 2013
  • As an intern in the Design Department, I worked alongside the Editors to gain insight into layout design. I was able to use different software for specific tasks, such as Quark XPress, InDesign and Illustrator. I worked to small briefs and helped to digitally piece the newspaper together. This experience gave me a great insight into the creation of a daily newspaper and editorial design.
