About me
I’m a 22 year-old student currently finishing my final year of the BA (Hons) Graphic Design course at Sheffield Hallam University. Alongside the course I run my own design agency in Sheffield called Swype Creative. As a designer I am very experimental, from branding to web design, app design and photography I do try to challenge myself in every way possible. I am always expanding my client network and looking for new opportunities to tackle.
