About me

Graphic Designer currently based in Hampshire. My philosophies are simple; work hard and be kind to people. I am a dedicated and proficient designer, specialising in digital communication, working comfortably with Adobe Creative Cloud software. I am a recent Visual Communication BA (Hons) graduate from The Arts University of Bournemouth, and have developed a detailed understanding of communicating to an audience, semiotics and design process. Here I completed a Creative Internship at ITV Studios in London, working on a live motion brief. I also managed social media platforms and created advertisements for Chartwells Catering service across both The Arts University Bournemouth and Bournemouth University. When I am not focused on my design passion, I am being creative elsewhere; playing guitar, expanding my skill-set, and exploring as many places as possible. I find joy in making others laugh and learning new things about new people, and try not to take myself too seriously! You can find my work at http://www.ohmatthew.co.uk, and I look forward to hearing from you!
