    • Propero is a creative marketing agency who focus on helping law firms with all their creative needs. Originally brought in as one half of a design team I was quickly asked to step up into the role of Creative Lead. In this role my main task was to help in a complete brand overhaul and work on creating a new brand. Along with the senior content team I worked on developing a new brand for the agency. The idea was to create something that was openly different, and that challenged the uncreative stigma that people had of the market we were targeting. In this process I was responsible for creating all new collateral from digital marketing to event banners and merchandise. As well as working on the internal creative, I was the point of contact for any clients who needed new creative ideas.

    • Agent3 are a digital marketing agency who specialise in account-based marketing. As the Graphic Designer, I work closely with the creative lead in the production of marketing materials, digital content and creative campaigns across both digital and print. Another aspect to my role is teamwork with the Consultancy & Services department to ensure alignment and a collaborative approach to design. I also work closely with our software developers to ensure the design is implemented according to the brief. During my time at Agent3 I have worked on many engaging and rewarding projects for nationally and internationally known clients. The projects I have worked on have ranged from website redesigns, digital marketing asset creation, iconography, wireframing, email and landing page designs. It is essential that I work to strict deadlines and ensure that all creative material is provided within given time frames and budgets. In this role, I have to be able to openly and positively contribute to design discussions and providing design knowledge to team members when required.
