About me
Based in Cambridge, I am a visual communicator and surface pattern designer with a first class BA(Hons) degree in Illustration. My aim is to inspire an audience in unexpected ways, by using abstracted, playful forms and innovative design. I am passionate about colour and pattern, and enjoy taking information that wasn’t originally visual then re-imagining it into something unexpected and visually interesting. I am an organised and enthusiastic individual who is open to new challenges. With one year of design experience, I am looking for new opportunities within the design industry, as well as within engaging environments such as Museum & Heritage. I enjoy applying pattern based work to surfaces, as well as placing it beside information. I am also open to commissions. Please feel free to drop me an email if you have any queries. yasminaldrich@gmail.com Website: www.yasminaldrich.co.uk Instagram: @yasmin.illustration
