At Quadrille publishing, I am responsible for a variety of design tasks, many of which involve assisting the marketing and publicity departments. These tasks include; physically mocking up book, photographing books, designing menus, social media signage, social media assets, posters etc. I also make small movie clips to promote certain books using AfterEffects. Aside from these regular tasks, there are occasionally larger promotional tasks for me to get stuck in to, such as a bus advert and a window display. For the design department, I lay out books and stationary designs, whilst also making corrections to pre-existing designs and adjusting them to certain specifications. Alongside these design tasks, I also assist with reception cover and help to run book launch events.
Working at Port Magazine, I was primarily responsible for handling social media, with a particular focus on promotion through Instagram. This included the combination of Illustrator, Photoshop and AfterEffects in order to use the capabilities of Instagram to it’s full effect. I also worked on designing content for Twitter and Facebook, formatting images, creating invites for events and generally assisting on design related tasks.
At Icon I was involved in developing layouts for the magazine, working on promotional material for the company, editing images and generally assisting fellow colleagues.
At the i I assisted on developing spreads and visuals for the newspaper, making use of pre-existing templates and styles, and generally assisting the art director.
As a design intern at How To Spend It magazine, I was responsible for designing layouts, editing pictures, formatting pictures and text, creating cut outs and choosing images to go on layouts. This required tight communication between myself, the art directors and the picture editor. One of my key responsibilities was managing the web content, as I was personally responsible for ensuring that all articles were uploaded to the CMS in a timely manner, giving the sub editors and fact checkers enough time to edit the content before it went live. I was also responsible for the aesthetics of the website, largely through controlling the crop as images transitioned from print to web. I was also involved with a variety of editorial tasks, including fact checking articles, writing social media campaigns and writing picture captions.
At the London College of Communication I studied Graphic and Media design, where I focused on editorial design, particularly in regards to the news and politics.
