About me

I have successfully completed a BA Honours in graphic design and a National Diploma and Higher National Diploma in Design/Multimedia.

I have an outstanding portfolio that contains work from Archant Lifestyle magazines, Dowty Smith Industries and university projects. I consider myself a professional person with integrity towards people and work. I have excellent motivation skills and perfect time management, with immense drive and energy towards design.

I have proficient skills ranging from Adobe creative suite to web coding.

I am currently inspired by minimal design; I admire the use of simple, bold and bright colours and the way minimal designs are striped down it their bare essentials. I am an enthusiastic, creative and passionate Graphic Designer based in Cheltenham. My dream is to find a position within an organisation that will provide an opportunity for me to utilise my skills and capabilities within the design field.
