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.
Typesetting templates according to customer requirements. Working with typography. Creating PDF proofs for approval. Artwork manipulation and scanning originals. Proof reading other colleagues' work.
This course is designed to incorporate all skills developed in HND course and to use self motivation to a greater extent. Research is more of a requirement than previous years. I achieved a merit in the communication unit.
