While covering for the head designer, in 2009, I was in charge of the design and animation for the website. Following Harper’s iconic design ideas and creating beautiful graphics that would translate and connect with fashion. After my first stint I was asked back on a regular basis to help the team on special issues and for holiday cover.
As a Senior Designer for the International creative team, I managed Jawbone’s brand assets in EMEIA. As part of my role I support the EMEIA Channel Marketing team, manage the brand and creative assets, developing fit-for-purpose artwork solutions to promote the brand online, off line and in-store.
Working as a consultant with a full time workload for this International Agency allowed me to grow as a designer and learn to work on my own, organise myself and be self-critical of my work. The projects varied from Off-air to On-air IDs, promos and special packages for channels such as: RTL II, Austria 9, Kabeleins & El Cartel Media, Austria Tv, and others.
Working at this up and coming Graphic Design Studio helped me develop the ability to work under pressure whilst still achieving the best results. I gained lots of experience in understanding client relationships, working on new proposals and pushing my creative boundaries. Projects included, on-air campaigns, and off-air print campaigns for Latin American channels such as: Discovery Channel, Travel&Living, People&Arts (BBC), Hallmark Channel & Canal 13, Chile.
