About me
Hi, I'm Lucy! Nice to meet you. I am a confident and qualified graphic designer who can demonstrate a set of skills such as typography and advertising using a wide display of materials and forms. Skilled in using Adobe programmes to produce quality designs to specified briefs, within any time frame. Working within a team or individually, across all levels to research, ideate, develop and deliver enhanced design. A flexible approach to work, able to juggle multiple priorities whilst maintaining a positive and co-operative approach at all times.
Projects
  • Focus on yourself
    Focus on yourselfThis year has been absolutely crazy for everybody and it's easy to get caught up in it all. I have been trying to remind myself to stay calm, even though it is hard at times, staying calm helps me get through the days.
  • Autoethnography
    AutoethnographyFor my Final Major Project this year at university, I decided to focus on who I am and also who I have become through the past few months of finishing my degree whilst in a pandemic. I pinpointed some specific memories from being in my home town of Great Torrington, Devon and created some images from these memories. Focusing on colours that reflected the emotions as well as my surroundings, I found this project insightful into helping me get through living in lockdown.

    I joined Ameena Hamid once more to design artwork for a project of another podcast, “Tales from The Tombstone Tavern” - a spooky Halloween themed podcast that followed horror legends sitting around a table, drinking, and sharing spooky stories. This project was exceptionally fun to work on as there was the creative ability to go down any route with the cover art. Working alongside Ameena Hamid herself, we focused on a gravestone style sign that resembled an old pub sign.

    Throughout June, I designed and produced artwork for a new podcast titled, ‘Right ho, Jeeves!’. This was a fun project to help performers get back into acting during the lockdown. I focused on an initial design based on the original story books of Jeeves, but modernised and simplified it to create a cover art for the podcast as well as supporting social media materials.
