A Graphic Design graduate who recently completed a three year course at the University of Reading, achieving a first class honours. At our final-year degree show I received an Examiners’ Award for my newspaper design, ArtC, and in 2014 I was awarded with the Vince Ma award. This is an award given to the three best performing students in the second year of the BA Graphic Communication course. I am currently looking for work within the graphic design industry. Specifically I am interested in event or exhibition branding, print, and editorial design. However any kind of experience in the industry at this point in my career would be valuable, and I am eager to expand my knowledge of digital design. Through experience I have enjoyed working towards creative events and exhibitions. I thrive off the variety of work involved, and the exposure to different creative disciplines that it brings; and so I am currently aiming towards this type of role.
Most importantly this has allowed me to understand what is necessary for successful client relationships. I have also started to develop a brand via facebook and my own website, giving my portfolio exposure, and I have gained work and interest as a result.
Based in Qatar, I am currently working within a team of four in-house designers towards Qumra, a film industry event. Previous to that I was working towards Ajyal Youth Film Festival. My role has included creating and developing the bi-lingual campaigns for both, followed by implementing these on various deliverables including print and digital advertisements, programmes and other publications, venue branding and merchandise. My role here will be completed in March and so I will be available for any work, in the UK or elsewhere, from then.
A wedding venue based in Devon. I worked face-to-face with clients and guests, solving problems within each event along with setting up beforehand and clearing down. This helped to hone my interpersonal skills, and required being able to function well during long hours in a fast-paced environment.
A graphic design agency based in Shoreditch, London. A small company so I was given a lot of responsibility, working alone on branding for live briefs.
Here I helped take the annual inventory of the Arcadian’s rare books and documents, on European and Arabian heritage; a fascinating experience.
A graphic design company based in Truro, Cornwall. This gave me a good insight into how a design company works, and what part a designer plays in it.
