I’ve worked as a designer for various different companies; from a small start up to an established social media management company, covering a wide range of disciplines including design & illustration, animation and video. My roles required me to use my confidence and initiative, artistic integrity and passion for all things creative; these elements are important for me to have within a job role and this is a catalyst for my love of the creative sector. I also love the atmosphere within a creative studio, I feel it’s important to have that sense of ‘family’ and comfort so that creativity has the ability to flow. I graduated from Norwich University of the Arts in 2013 with a degree in Illustration. I am keen to expand my creative skills I learnt there and put them to good use. In addition to this I have recently been sub-contracting in a multi-disciplinary role for a high end handbag retailer primarily consisting of web design, this was something completely challenging for me but having done a course online and creating my first HTML and CSS designed website I have now been able to add this creative skill set to my portfolio.
