I want to be involved in a community of creative and intellectual people. I am a student and have got a foundation degree in graphic design & advertising and have now began studying at stockport college to top my qualification upto ba level. i am doing another 2 years. i aim to gain as much experience as possible within these next 2 years and also get hands on experience on a design placement to enable me to progress to work in the creative industry. I believe that you have got to open your eyes and get involved with people to give you inspiration.

  • Design
  • Make

I have good application skills using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign. I can work confidently in creating and developing idea generation and designing the final outcome.

I have specialised in areas such as Advertising and Typography and worked on live client projects for
companies such as Mercedes SMART and High Growth Foundation.

The Mercedes advertising project which was run as a competition, involved group work, individual design and presentation skills.

Projects which I have completed during my course
include designs for corporate identity, branding, stationery sets, flyers & poster designs,
book cover design, packaging and advertising campaigns.

Colour is an area I have developed a
strong understanding of and its relation to the print process. I have a good understanding of
colour values and the difference between CMYK, RGB and Pantones and how to apply these to a
piece of artwork.
