About me

I have a Bachelor's of Arts Degree in Graphic Design. Within my current role in the Trinidad and Tobago High Commission, I effectively produce accessible and inclusive designs for Government officials, both private and public organisations, and the general public from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. I design and develop visual communication solutions across a variety of mediums, and between my full-time role and my freelance work this includes but is not limited to web graphics, quarterly publications, event programmes, brand identity, adverts and social media marketing collaterals which have all been commercially utilised

Through the promoting and planning of events, I have demonstrated my ability to work as part of a team, formulating and implementing ideas with colleagues at all stages of the production process. Within my freelance work, I work closely with clients to ensure I am able to meet their specifications, whilst also communicating my own ideas to produce a collaborative design solution. I often have several projects running simultaneously yet am still able to produce highly successful results within the deadline. I have demonstrated an ability to work to tight timescales within my current role, as I often receive last minute requests and specifications for projects that are needed urgently.

Within my current role my excellent organisational, planning and time-management skills coupled with my understanding of the importance of branding and innovative and creative design work have enabled me to provide successful online and print-ready designs including quarterly publications, e-bulletins, event programmes, brand collaterals, web banner adverts and social media marketing collaterals. These were produced by the skilled use of Adobe Design Suite programs such as InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and Premiere Pro in a Mac environment.

Within my freelance work, I have demonstrated my ability to produce artwork following templates, style sheets and brand guidelines. A large part of my current role in the High Commission includes liaising with the printers and preparing and checking each artwork is print-ready in all formats such as banner stands, posters, leaflets, booklets and newsletters

Throughout my tenure with the High Commission I regularly research and select appropriate imagery for event flyers, posters and invitations and as such have an in-depth knowledge of design principles and a good understanding of design trends. I am responsible for creative suggestions and development suitable for marketing collaterals, campaigns and strategies in print and online platforms. I have demonstrated my strong creativity, a love of design, attention to detail in real-world examples and the ability to apply it within leaflets, brochures and quarterly newsletters which I produced within my freelance work and for the High Commission.

I am able to travel internationally when required.

I am a very hardworking and committed individual and always willing to learn. I would relish the opportunity to be able to do the same within your organisation.
