My name is Philip Demir and I’m a graphic designer with a deep-rooted passion for all things creative. For over two years, I’ve been a creative designer both professionally and in a freelance capacity. I’ve played an important role in many exciting creative projects across the fields of branding, web, illustration, editorial and more – all with the aim to achieve and push further that industry-level standard of quality. Striving to make a positive change through great design is what drives me, alongside a never-fading desire to continually build on my skills and extend my range of capabilities within digital creative programs. My efforts are reflected in my achievements, including becoming a semifinalist in the Adobe Design Achievement Awards 2016, working with high-profile clients such as the NHS, and proudly graduating from my graphic design degree with first class honours.Locked Pro Plan feature
My proudest role to date, I have worked for a year and a half as a digital designer at an agency based in Bath. My tasks involved working on a wide range of creative projects spanning web, e-commerce and digital to print. The clients were mainly high-end luxury lifestyle brands and individuals who required outcomes presented at an equally first-class standard. Being a small agency, I was given an unusually large amount of responsibility for a junior position, and I was depended on to provide much of the agency’s creative output.
Alongside my studies at University I have worked on a number of outside briefs for a range of clients. Outcomes and solutions have included collaboration on a letterpress printed collector’s book, bespoke poster designs and album artwork.
