As a Junior Photo Editor and Photographic Arts Graduate, I have a distinct passion for content creation. This has evolved through experiences as the Design Intern for ELLE Magazine, Designer for Focus On Africa and undertaking an overtime role as Design Assistant at Mr & Mrs Smith. I now strive to evolve my career and passion further as a Junior Designer full time.
- FOCUS ON AFRICA - Style GuideAfter working with the charity for a few years as their photographer and volunteer, I started work as one of their designers. I briefed them on my ideas surrounding the introduction of a simple style guide enabling to consistent colouring and logo use across all platforms. This would allow for peer review from all social media volunteers before posting content on behalf of the charity. With the colour style guide set to aid in the design of promotional material, I started with an upcoming event
- ELLE MAGAZINE - River Island PromotionAs the Design Intern at ELLE Magazine, I was assigned a brief to create an advertisement for a promotion coming soon in collaboration with River Island. This was to be located in the upcoming issue of the magazine. To complete this I was provided with the copy, logo and eight jpeg images of upcoming garments in the new River Island collection. For this brief there was no style guide or suggested routes, so I was therefore free to explore methods to make it stand out and appeal to the reader.
