History of Art graduate with a passion for graphic design. Supporter of Mother Nature and carer of the planet. Determined, kind, hard-working.
As part of the Editorial Art Department I am responsible for building the GQ app for subscribers and designing graphics for social media. I have furthered my knowledge on InDesign, AfterEffects and PremierePro, while gaining live art direction experience behind the scenes at shoots. I have also started a weekly art/lifestyle column on gq-magazine.co.uk where I interview artists and feature new sustainable and eco-friendly projects. In the midst of a pressured workspace, I am able to work with members of the creative team to meet deadlines and complete detailed tasks in rapid timeframes.

I was also in charge of designing and printing posters, exhibtion leaflets and wall vinyls.
The University of Nottingham’s official student magazine run entirely by volunteers. A free 60-page full colour magazine established in 1939 with a total print run of 14,000 across the city and campuses. I was responsible for the magazine’s rebrand and the design and layout for 5 issues. I also helped direct a fashion shoot for charity in a supermarket selling food for the homes less.
