About me

Dear Hiring Manager,

Following 10+ years of progressive experience, I am ready to dive into an agency-based or in-house role and use my expertise as a Graphic Designer and Photo Retoucher to boost the impact of your projects. Having navigated the freelance world, I would love to connect and work within creative teams and within a company that offers strong career development opportunities for a hard-working, ambitious individual.

Fresh from university, I joined MYK Studios and Y Axis Design Agency as a Graphic Designer, predominantly in support of their wedding album and design service. Quickly establishing personal skill as a creative professional, I managed full project from initial client brief through to final artwork and product solutions. I applied my skills as a photographer to capture images and retouched them in post-production using Adobe Photoshop. I delivered high-quality visualised results that represented the client's wishes for one of the most momentous times in their lives.

My time with the London Magic Store was a different challenge. I self-managed projects for corporate and commercial clients, worked on photo retouches for product and fashion clients and worked up complete branding solutions for start-ups and SMEs. I refined my client skills and demonstrated the strength to present ideas and convince client representatives of design strengths in final products.

Alongside my time within agencies, I have also commanded a successful career within the freelance world via popular online platforms. Working with the likes of SpinIQ, Dove, WHO, House of Cakes and Timri, my work is polished, on-brand and meets the commercial, marketing, and visual goals of clients. I work as a Graphic Designer and Photo Retoucher, with projects ranging from typography and full brand identity to colour-grading and retouching product photos for marketing campaigns.

As a creative professional, I am skilled in visualising briefs, creating storyboards and mood boards that breathe life into corporate and commercial client projects. I have an eye for composition, colours and font selection that connect brand guidelines and standards to consumer trends. With my finger on the pulse of design and visual trends, I am unafraid to create innovative, out-of-the-box graphics and visual assets that boost view experience. I also blend a fundamental knowledge of marketing, advertising and business and an awareness of the competitive landscape for many industries.

Primed and ready for challenges, I am genuinely excited about your opportunity and the role I could play as your next creative talent signing. I would love to chat further, so please get in touch on +44 (0) so I can prove why I should be your next hire.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Yours truly,

Nida Shah
