I am a Design for Industry Graduate from the University of Northumbria looking for a Creative Advertising, Creative Artworking or Graphic design role. I have experience in the design industry, having done a three month Graphic Design placement with highly acclaimed company Paragon Creative. Completing this degree has developed my qualities in all areas, specifically Adobe Creative Suites which I have become very experienced with, working with Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator. The degree has taught me to work to tight deadlines and presenting my work to a high standard by becoming a perfectionist at layout of boards. Creative thinking gives me the ability to think outside the box where others would stay narrow minded. I bring an enthusiasm and a thirst to succeed and make a project truly special.

It was challenging and taught me to manage my time effectively and manage multiple projects at once with early deadlines. Working with big brands including Phillips, Lacoste, Intel, Mars, Unilever.
