About me

I am a designer with experience working freelance, on team projects and individually, on a range of design jobs since I graduated in 2017. I have a 2:1 in Art and Design from Leeds University where I specialised in Photography and Print-Making. After completion of my degree, I extended my technical design skills with the Certificate IV Course at The Graphic Design School, developing my expertise in illustration, typography, logo design, graphic illustration, layout design and package design. This not only demonstrates my passion for my craft but also my ability to perform at high standards. I have recently graduated from Shillington College where I did an intensive 3-month Graphic Design course which was the equivalent to a degree. I am proficient at Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign. I also have an excellent knowledge of Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel. I am inventive, conscientious and reliable and have a range of testimonials and references available on request.
