About me
Hello there, it’s nice to meet you! My name is Meg and I am a D&AD New Blood pencil winner. I like to think of myself as an all-round creative, but I have a soft spot for illustration and editorial design. I am passionate about education, and I am a big believer that education is the most powerful tool we can use to change the world. I have worked with children and young adults for five years and have tailored my final year projects to bring my two passions together: design and working with young people. I am now looking for a Junior Designer position that will allow me to use my design skills to make a positive change.
