Please see my website for a full portfolio - thaddaeusabrown.myportfolio.com A young creative, who started off with a passion for music, which later developed into a beat-making hobby, to serious interest. So serious, that he decided to invest in a bedroom studio to commit to getting better at the craft. This later led to a job opportunity as an admin/creative assistant for a serial entrepreneur and a ridiculously talent super producer / multi-instrumentalist, during this time the passion for music would blossom into an appreciation for creativity in all its various forms and a taste for this sparked the hunger to do more, learn more and repeat. After that had run its incredibly invaluable course, I took the chance to take up another creative skill being graphic design, after picking up some proficiency in videography, photography, digital marketing, social media content creation, management and scheduling. I would do this as a design apprentice for Hackney Council, the borough that I have been born and raised in. I have been able to thrive confidently in this role and feel at home as both a creative and as a long time resident. As well as gaining graphic design and artworking experience, I have been able to maintain and improve my understanding of Videography, photography, sound engineering and even adding Motion Graphics / Animation into the mix. Find out more about me on my portfolio, where you can see my experience in education as well as the world of work, and also a passion project or two...
