My name is Mason. I’m a digital designer and honours graduate of Ravensbourne College of Design currently working as a graphic designer. I’m a passionate, forward thinking creative, with a desire to grow and develop into a more able visual communicator. I believe my versatility and ability to adapt and apply myself is my most valuable asset as a designer.Locked Pro Plan feature
Working at Gemserv has been my first full-time employment role since graduating. I was brought in to assist the marketing team on a number of large projects, and also as a specific artwork creator for in house as well as external projects. During my time here I have already contributed largely to a number of high impact projects, most notably being the company's re-brand. I have worked with the marketing manager to produce a fresh look for Gemserv, as well as contributing the designs for the new website.
At Alter The Motion I have been part of the team since the founding. I have overseen and created all design aspects of the label, from the branding all the way down to customised email signatures. All visual content is concepted, created and supplied by myself. This has allowed me to work closely with artists, and develop my skills in those slightly more niche areas. Most notably is the branding and brand management work I have done with artist Tay Salem, who is also part of Alter The Motion.
Having been brought back in almost immediately after graduating from Ravensbourne, I help oversee the progression of Digital Advertising and Design students, particularly from the 1st year. I provide software support and aid with the general conducting of the course, from supporting lectures to grading and assessing final submissions.
I got the opportunity to become a Blippar intern through a competition I won. During my time there I actively worked on live projects for big name clients such as Emirates Airlines, J2O, Max Factor and Warehouse. All of which launched with contributions from myself.
During my time at Suburb I worked on multiple live projects, both in-house and external. Most notably was GoBots, an internal project that Suburb had been developing for a couple months when I had arrived. I worked mostly independently on this project while under the supervision of the lead front-end designers. A lot of what I contributed, both visual and conceptual, went into the final build of the app which is now available on the App Store. I learned a lot of valuable lessons while at Subrub, most notably on how an agency works from the inside and the key roles that individuals play in order to deliver a project on time.
While at FPP I worked on some of my first live projects. I was tasked with concepting and creating posters for print, the client being Cravendale. I also helped contribute assets to a host of other projects during my time here. It was also a refreshing experience as it was the first time I had travelled out of London to work.
Since enrolling and beginning my higher education with Ravensbourne back in 2013, I have developed both as a designer & all-around person. My software knowledge has exceeded what I ever expected it to be, as a result of the different mediums I worked with during my course. From concepting adverts, to producing 2D animations, all the way to creating bespoke illustrations, I can now say I have extensive knowledge and experience with the majority of Adobe CC and other software such as Cinema 4D. Most notably enhanced are my skills within Adobe Illustrator, After Effects and Photoshop. Whether it is working freelance, or within a creative agency that has upwards of 150 employees, I feel that no matter what route I decide to take I am prepared. I have never produced work as good as what I created while studying with Ravensbourne. I feel that the level of degree I received reflects that, and I look forward to adapting and applying these skills in the working world to help pave my career.
