I offer four years of professional experience in the industry as a Graphic Designer, focusing primarily in brand and editorial design. Through my work I have developed a strong personality, which has allowed me to work up through the ranks quickly, honing in on my abilities not only as a creative, but also as business mind. My experience with client liaising and project management has allowed me to steer designs, lead a team and seeing projects through from conception to print.
Working as the Studio Designer, I was charged with the production of all print collateral, managing a Junior Designer whom assists me with my daily tasks. My role allows me to take the initial conceptual design and implement it throughout all print collateral. We provide visual identities within the luxury property and retail sector, with an output varying from campaigns and marketing collateral to print and digital brochures. The role allows me to project manage and liaise directly with clients and printers whilst brief ing the junior and freelance designers for the supporting assets.
Working closely with the Creative Director, my work ranged from small print to large digital projects. Typically we would design and develop case studies and pitch proposals, specifically for boutique corporate events. Each event is custom built on a project by project basis, entirely on the client’s needs, which allowed for direct client contact. The production varied from print design, to digital assets for web or social media graphics and animation storyboards.
My role saw me capture, create and deliver innovative knowledge artefacts. Working mainly in a multimedia format, I was positioned in my team as an integrated designer, liaising with the marketing department creating print material and the digital department working on video, animation and UI design.
