Communications for New Artists

Topshop

Nov 2016
  • Freelance
  • Starting late last year I begun working with two musical artists in setting up their social media presence online. Applying the knowledge that I have attained in my higher education in promotional media I have been working with the artists to create the persona they wish to present across social media. Focusing on platforms such as Instagram and Facebook, I have been collecting and editing videos, pictures, and sound clips to design captivating, honest, and raw representations of the two artists. They are both projects that I have put a great amount of dedication and time into, spending any free time that I have when not studying towards my masters in creating and promoting the artists.

Retail Assistant

Topshop

Sep 2015 - Mar 2016
  • Full Time
  • This job was during my last and most stressful year of full time education, which meant balancing working part-time, whilst trying to write my dissertation, and make time for my personal life, and therefore taught me to structure my life so that my stress levels actually decreased, and I became more comfortable dealing with tasks under pressure. Being in customer service, this job also helped me gain confidence with my interpersonal skills and has taught me the polite and even-tempered form of communication needed when dealing with clients.
