I am a Freelance Graphic Designer and Illustrator specialising in editorial/ layout, large - format print and typography-based design work. I have previously worked as a Studio Technician at Edinburgh College of Art, where I taught classes and tutorials on Adobe Creative Cloud to varying levels of student proficiency, supported the printmaking workshop with classes and inductions and oversaw the organisation and day-to-day running of the Illustration department and design of in-house publications. My screen printing practice is process based and I utilise anaologue photography and stencil screenprinting to explore narratives and themes within observational photographs. www.otpascoe.com Instagram: @otpascoeLocked Pro Plan feature
