I am a 19 year old, first year Fashion Graphics student studying at Southampton Solent University. I work primarily on the computer, taking my influences from my surroundings, my experiences whilst traveling and current affairs.
My favourite medium to use for design - aside from the computer would be a fineliner as I enjoy designing
intricate illustrations with lots of detail.
I also have a keen interest and passion for photography and find myself constantly taking photos, even if they mostly end up on Instagram!
Last spring, I completed a one-week work experience placement at Aduro Communications, a PR company in London. I found this to be very beneficial in teaching me what it is like to work in a commercial and professional fast paced environment. I spent the week keeping an eye on social media and contacting various companies including well known magazines.
I was recently asked by my course leader to be a course rep for (BA Hons) Fashion Graphics first year students. I take great pride in being asked to fulfil this position as it shows that I am a committed member of the group, who is actively involved in class discussions, I work very hard and I am not afraid to put my opinions forward.
I have strong computer skills, particularly on Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, as well as Word, PowerPoint and Excel.
In terms of creativity, I involve myself in various projects outside university. On two occasions I have been asked to design wedding invitations, as well as posters and leaflets for local village events. Additionally, over two days I shadowed a BBC cameraman for a BBC History event that took place in my hometown. This gave me experience within another field of the creative industry.
