I am BA Honours qualified in Graphic Design and Digital Media and can demonstrate competent design skills in designing for both print and digital media.
Over the past five years I have achieved a level of proficiency in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign. My technical expertise extends to creating 2D motion-graphics and video editing/manipulation with Adobe After Effects and Premier Pro. I have a working knowledge of sketching, wireframes and storyboards and am familiar with UX principles of interactive design.
Having the opportunity to apply my creative talents and keen eye for detail to my design decisions is an aspect I hugely enjoy, right through from concept to completion. My approach is meticulous file management and as a graphic designer I have learnt that accuracy and attention to detail are paramount.
My extensive background in teaching English provided me with strong organisational skills and a professional approach to time, costs and deadlines. The same profession has supplied me with excellent written and verbal communication skills, extremely useful in graphic design as well as customer service roles such as retail manager, hotel receptionist, census enumerator and Samaritans volunteer.
