About me

I have just finished my final year as a Graphic Design student at Nottingham Trent University. I would say that primarily, I specialise in Branding/Advertising, Video and storytelling. I love to create new campaigns and adverts for brands; watching the consumer connect with a brand as a result of my work really satisfies me! Recently I have been showing story telling through video which combines my interest in photography and moving image. However, I love combating problems with design and I never shy away from a new challenge and I am always up for giving anything a go! Experience wise (so far), I was tasked with creating a new logo for my College while doing my Foundation Studies a few years ago. This was a great first insight into how the industry works, having to make Brand guidelines for the college was a big milestone for me as a student. This year I was fortunate enough to be shortlisted the RSA Mind Your Money competition. With this, I was invited to pitch my design solution in front of professionals from Natwest, RBS, the RSA, and other companies. As Trip Secretary for my Mountaineering Club at NTU, I weekly managed large groups of 30+ people taking them all over England and as far as the Dolomites in Italy. This drastically improved my speaking, pitching and time-management skills. I am a thrill seeker who loves to take risks which are why my passions are Climbing and Mountaineering. This and design share a special place for me. Climbing has taught me so many life skills. Whether that is giving more trust to people, going into a mountain route not knowing the challenges that I may face, but having the self-belief that I will be able to overcome them, or simply having the attitude of 'where there is a will, there's a way.' I believe that these skills are directly transferable to the creative industry and aiding in becoming a successful designer. Five reasons why I would be a great addition to the team: 1: I am proficient in core Adobe programs, i.e. Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro and After Effects. 2: I am experienced in UI/UX, Photography, Video, Branding, Advertising and Digital design. 3: Have a 'can-do' attitude towards tasks and are willing to give anything ago. 4: I am friendly and proactive, someone that can work individually on briefs but equally I am a team player. 5: I take criticism on board and use it to better myself and my work, I am not afraid to speak up in team meetings and love to pitch new concepts and ideas. I am a very out-going person who loves to meet new people and I feel like I would slot straight into the team! I am hard working, determined and a team player. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

Work history

Currently

Climbing Instructor

The Climbing Depot

Sep 2016
  • Nottingham, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • As a climbing instructor, I regularly take charge of all age groups to teach them how to climb. I am responsible for their safety and well-being. I frequently have to deal with problem-solving. This could be from administering first aid, to deal with a customer complaint. This job has helped my improve my group management skills as well as talking to an audience no matter what the age dynamic.

2016

Stock Controller

Tesco Ltd.

Oct 2012 - Jul 2016
  • March, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • As a stock controller and customer assistant, it was my job to maintain stock levels to ensure all shelves were filled at all times. I would deal directly with some of the smaller suppliers my store would buy from and often put orders in for the store. This helped my organisation skills and proves that I can be a reliable and trusted member of a team.

2015

General Asistant

John Cutteridge

Jan 2012 - Jul 2015
  • March, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • As a General Assistant on Johns Cutteridge's Farm/Plant Nursery I would do a host of manual laboured jobs. This could range from building sheds, maintaining cattle or general gardening. I would work long hours often 12-14 hour days which mainly would start around 6 am. This job really taught me how hard work pays off. It also shows that long hours and dedication to a job at hand is something I do not shy away from.
