About me

 

My skill set includes Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop. I have been utilising these packages throughout college and my employment for over 10 years which has given me in-depth working knowledge. I have experience of page layouts for newspapers and am actively involved with a tourist magazine. In addition I can create web graphics and logos on an ad hoc basis. Given that proof reading has been a skill I have used extensively and enjoy, I have good attention to detail. In addition I have strong typography skills. As a typesetter working with rubber stamps and personalised products, I can work to specification to meet the customers’ requirements. I excel in fast-paced environments, meeting tight deadlines and working under pressure. I have a keen eye for detail and a strong team-player and I can communicate effectively both with my team and management on a daily basis.
