About me

 

I am a graphic designer who can draw great illustrations, take good photos, and build cool websites. Art, beauty and creation has always inspired me from a young age when my favourite thing to do was draw. After enjoying designing some event posters for sixth form, I began volunteering as a graphic designer for Cats Protection. My first job came soon after as I began working as a freelance graphic designer for a company in London. I have since been lucky enough to design and illustrate a number of projects, which range from magazine adverts and illustrations, to re-branding, and even a designing a mural for an office. I have sound knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite. Studying a broad course, I also have skills in photography, web design (Wordpress, HTML and CSS), 3D modelling (Maya), film production, film editing and C programming. View my portfolio at www.leannedesign.com. Available for freelance. Looking for a placement as part of my year in industry from Sep 2016-2017.
