Whilst working at HOT!MESS, I took the initiative to build up my work experience and portfolio by freelancing. I was able to enhance my graphic design knowledge and ability by working within my community, helping them set up their businesses online. My current project is with setting up an online clothing business, working alongside a team of people including a designer, a marketing manager and a social media manager. My role has been to create her web shop on Shopify, designing all the web pages, creating a look-book, editing and setting up products in order to shop on the site, which launched 02/10/17. Working freelance has allowed me to work with some amazing individuals who want to turn their passion into a business, which has driven me to ensure that I produce the highest quality of work. This project allowed me to have creative freedom, which improved my decision making skills, whilst communicating this with the rest of the team.
