I am an award winning Graphic Designer specialising in Advertising. I have a first class honours degree in Visual Communication from Gray’s School of Art. In 2013, I was one of eight UK graduates selected to feature in Creative Review and awarded an YCN Student Award in London.
I have been working as a Graphic Designer at DC Thomson since 2013. In this role, I have received Advertisement of the Year award twice at our annual advertising awards. As part of the creative team, I create advertising concepts for a broad spectrum of clients from Lidl to Glennfiddich. I continuously take projects from conception to completion both externally and internally. I have vast experience producing responsive advertisements, both digitally and in print. I have also created a wide array of artwork from branding and exhibition stands to editorial publications.
I am proficient in Adobe Creative Suite including InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Premier Pro as well as other software such as Prezzi, Wayin and Final Cut Pro.
Within my current role, I have taken part in various digital training sessions, expanding my knowledge of Wordpress, Bannerflow and Wayin (a digital experience platform). I have also lead training sessions in bannerflow. I am continually striving to improve upon my existing skill set and enjoy learning new skills at every opportunity.
In my spare time, I enjoy taking local art workshops in life drawing, screenprinting and using large format laser cutters. I also love to cook and bake.
