I am a Manchester based freelance designer. At the moment I'm doing a bit of everything, from package design, web design, app design, to print, editorial and branding. Tell me what you need and we can work together to create gorgeous design. I am a graduate of Shillington College. I studied full time there and I learnt how to work to tight deadlines, explore rigorous ideation processes and ultimately create design that not only looks pretty but also has a strong conceptual foundation.
I studied full time at Shillington school of Graphic Design. Shillington College is a graphic design school that offers full and part time courses. It is an intense course that is created to teach design in a way that would best prepare you for working in the industry. We are taught a cohesive design process that encourage us to think like designers and use the process to execute beautiful design that responds appropriately to briefs. Within the course structure, realistic design briefs are set, with the opportunity to apply many skills taught from the creative suite. Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator are all covered alongside Sketch. Briefs cover editorial, print, branding, web design, UI and UX design and packaging design. The course is very hands on, with plenty of contact and guidance from experienced teachers, setting it apart from graphic design courses at university. The course is taught through lectures, demonstrations and discussions. Furthermore, each brief is set with 'industry timescale' deadlines; usually less than a day, or 1 - 2 days, which mean decision making and efficient ideation processes are emphasised. Despite the tight deadlines, students graduate with highly professional, well executed design portfolios.
