About me

Hi! I'm a Graphic Design & Illustration student currently in my final year at Ulster University. I'm interested in all aspects of design but I really enjoy working with typography and design for print. In my spare time I love to create hand-drawn lettering for which I have recently taught myself how to screen-print with the hopes of creating prints of my work to sell just for fun.

Work history

  • This was in my industrial placement year, I gained a lot of experience here setting artwork up for print and digital. The Union would create printed artwork such as Large outdoor banners, Pop ups, Posters, Adshells, Vinyl Signage, Also material for the website and social media. It was a good year for me as I was creating concepts from start to finish and they were really open to doing something different which gave me a lot of creative freedom. I worked in a small office of 5 including myself so I dealt with marketing also which was really insightful, I gained a lot of knowledge on market research etc.
