PROFILE

I’m a twenty-something creative and have worked as a brand designer for a UK hotel company for over 2 years. Always looking to grow and learn, I like to roll my sleeves up and get stuck in. As well as design for print and digital, I also dabble in HTML email coding. I’m experienced in the usual design programs, but Illustrator is my lifeblood. I love to combine my interests with my work, so food and football related designs really float my boat.

I work on multiple brands and enjoy seeing projects from brief to completion, creating the concept, copy and collateral. I always keep in mind the customer journey, message and target market to make sure my design is effective and commercial. Working with all aspects of the design process has allowed me to develop my skills and time-management. It has also taught me about maintaining consistency and quality within tight deadlines and has given me a killer eye for detail.

I love working in a team (playing football for over 14 years might have something to do with it), bouncing ideas off others to find a creative solution. I’m always on the lookout for great ideas, new techniques and technology, whether it’s in an email newsletter I’ve signed up to, a beer label or even a clever tweet. I like to think I’m positive, friendly and up for a challenge.
