About me

Having just graduated from University, I'm currently looking to learn and expand upon my skillset in either an internship or a junior design role. In the meantime, I'm keen on working towards improving my animating and video-making skills. However, my main desire is a career in print design, typography and layout design. Alongside this, my area of expertise does venture into branding as well as web design too. Through my three years at university I have gained many worthwhile skills such as teamwork, organisation and working towards multiple deadlines. I have around 6 months industry experience where I was taught and given the oppurtunity to put my creativity to the test. I always work with an open mind, facing challenges along the way. I always take on any necessary feedback and advice from my peers to ensure I'm always improving my work. I approach every brief using research, idea generation, right through to developing the final outcome. I love seeing the process from start to finsih! I’m open to anything new methods, techniques and software to ensure my skills are constantly up to date as well as staying up to date with the latest design trends and news.
