About me

A passionate Freelance Designer with a degree in Graphic Design. At an early age I was drawing and creating, prompting an interest in the fine arts and design. Now developing my skills further in branding, book design, digital, Illustration and packaging. Taking a keen interest in work involving fashion and beauty.  I have experience in working in packaging for home beauty products. I also learnt how to artwork, working with printers in China, so really started a project from the very start to the finish outcome. Being the only designer for 5 months to organise and work on all design briefs. Also gaining some responsibility and lead role when the junior designer joined the team. I also have experience working for a corporate company, TONI&GUY as their graphic designer, working on all print and digital work for the salons and events. Illustration experience working at Sanrio for Mr. Men and Hello Kitty. And digital experience at MatchesFashion and Revolution Beauty. I am a very hard working individual and always work to the best of my ability. Whether it is in a team or on my own. I have the facilities to work from home, such as the Adobe software (Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign) and a mac.
