Graphic Designer

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

I have a mixed background in the arts. Upon finishing school, I worked as freelance illustrator, specialising in film & music related artwork. This role allowed me to travel & work with clients across the world. I have been the solo illustrator & content designer for bands in Australia & Spain and film productions in the UK. My love of film goes further than design & I was lucky enough to be accepted onto the BFI future film academy in 2017.

We were given the oppotunity to create a short film in small groups.  My official role was the script supervisor and editor, though I assisted with script writing & set design. I realised working on the production design of the set was my real passion. I enjoyed dressing the set & creating graphics for it. Our Film then went on to be shown at First Cut film festival, Cardiff Mini, & Fastnet Film festival, where we were finalists. I was also able to travel to the Four Rivers film festival in Croatia where we won the award for Best screenwriting.

Earlier this year I attended Shillington design college, to improve my skills in digital & graphic design. I am now completely fluent in the popular adobe suite programmes - Illustrator, Photoshop & Indesign, and proficient in After effects and Premier pro. After Shillington I was commissioned to Design the website for Artist Frank Bowling RA OBE, following his increased popularity due to his solo retrospective at the Tate Britain. I then went onto do a placement at Big Fish Design studio over summer. This placement was initally meant to be one week and turned into two months. I gained more responsibility as the role went on & I feel I really grew as a designer, ready to work in professional enviroments.
