About me

I am a creative, organised and ambitious individual who would love to progress in a career within PR & Marketing and Design. I have over seven years worth of hands on retail experience, have interned with several successful design companies and have a First Class BA (Hons) degree in Textile Design from a Top British University. From this I have developed my ability to research and develop large scale projects from start to finish. I have gained insight into multiple parts of a working business from the shop floor to head office and have strengthened my analytical skills reacting directly to sales reports and figures. I am computer literate, fluent in Adobe Software such as Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign as well as Microsoft programmes. I am a great communicator, both verbally and written, a team player and come with bundles of energy and passion that would suit a high paced environment.
