    Junior UX/UI DesignerStoneShot
    London, United KingdomFull Time
    I work within the design team to provide user centric designs for both our clients and across our own internal SAAS app. My day to day workload includes designing emails and microsites for our external financial clients, while internally I work on our email marketing app to improve design and usability. I work closely with our development team and account managers to ensure everything I design can be built within the time frame and that the end product will have the desired aesthetic and function properly. I find that by working closely with the other teams within the company projects run much more smoothly, with less changes and iterations required. When working on client projects I regularly attend client meetings which is something I particularly enjoy - I believe direct interaction with a client is the best way to ensure that we have a thorough understanding of their needs and in turn can meet their expectations. As we are a small team my role also includes graphics and digital illustration and I have designed a number of banners and icons.

    BA (Hons) Illustration with Animation - First ClassManchester School of Art
     - Manchester, United Kingdom
    My degree was mainly print-based, I worked a lot by hand using ink and paint and combined this with Adobe Suite Programmes such as Photoshop and Illustrator to produce large scale prints on a variety of brief-led projects. Whilst on my course I particularly enjoyed using print processes such as Risograph and Silkscreen. The course encouraged all students to cast a wide net and try our hands at a variety of creative processes and as a result of this I also experimented with ceramics, bookmaking, linocut and lasercutting. During and after my degree I was also involved in a number of student organised exhibitions - one in London - I loved taking part in these and really enjoy exhibition installation and working collectively with other artists.
