Hello, I am a hard-working, conscientious and out-going Graphic Design graduate living in Peckham! During my course I specialised in Illustration, with a desire to create beautiful things. My favourite materials and methods include watercolour, collage, and dot-work, and anything colour or abstract. I had a real passion for the research and development stage of projects. This is because I enjoy thorough research, brainstorming, and understanding the real root of the problem, in order to create a really effective solution. I also loved writing my dissertation, as not only do I enjoy writing full stop, I chose a subject I believe is important, relevant hugely interesting- exploring how those who identify as LGBT are represented in British Television between 1980-2015. I enjoyed communicating my own ideas, as well as analysing theories. After completion of a recent internship at DixonBaxi, where I worked closely with the Studio Manager, the New Business Manager, and the Marketing Executive, I have learnt a lot more about where I'd next like to take my career. I am very interested in Marketing, Research, Events, Copywriting, Social Media, and am experienced with general admin duties. I would like to explore these skills within a creative space- such as a design studio or a contemporary gallery environment. I would appreciate any opportunity of full time work, internships, or work experience. In my spare time, I enjoy drawing, performing, spending time with friends and family, going to art exhibitions, gigs, reading i-d magazine, and watching television- everything from cheesy reality to hard-hitting documentaries!
