About me

Hello! I am a visual designer and creative excited about new opportunities in London. After graduating with an honours degree in Industrial Design from Victoria University in New Zealand, I have made London my home and gained experience in a range of creative studios, from industrial design agencies to design brands. My range of knowledge and skills expands from the visual and graphic, to 3D product and industrial design, to spacial design and styling. I am passionate about all aspects of the creative process and think blurring the lines between disciplines can produce fresh perspectives and results. For the past two years I have been managing content creation for the London based lifestyle brand Minimalux. In this role I was responsible for creating digital campaigns - from the photography, film, art direction, post production, editing, and marketing. I developed the content appropriately for Minimalux’s online store, newsletter mail-outs, printed advertising, and social media. I am proficient using the Adobe Suite, as well as experienced in 3D modelling programmes such as Rhino and Solidworks. For the past two years I have been curating and writing for a design and styling blog nothingtochance.co which focuses on minimal and functional product design, architecture, and interiors. I have learnt the importance of editing, and self critique. Having this personal outlet helps keep my mind fresh with new ideas, and up to date with the latest innovations and design trends from around the world. I thrive in a collaborative environment, surrounding myself with diverse projects and people, am naturally curious, a fast learner, hard-working and positive. Please take a look at my work, and let me know what you think. I am currently residing in London, and can potentially start at any time. Thanks for your time! Sarah
