ABOUT ME

D96AAF28-A912-49FE-AB39-7961609C448E.jpg

I am a Graphic Design graduate from Manchester School of Art and my most recent role was a Junior Designer/ Illustrator in Manchester at Yappy.com. I am a self - motivated and passionate designer who especially enjoys projects including illustration, branding and layout. 

In my most recent role at Yappy.com, I created illustrations for the company’s wide range of personalised dog and cat products. In my role I was responsible for designing new products, generating bespoke dog and cat icons for customers, creating illustrations for the social media pages, editing photographs and creating mockups for the PR team, as well as admin and JSON files to enable products to go live on the website.

My other industry experience includes a placement at Vivid which taught me key skills relating to software, in addition to giving me valuable experience of working within a dynamic team environment in a Graphic Design studio. I created typography which was issued to the client and was ultimately approved, created and installed on the windows at the front of their hotel. I learnt how to manage my time, take on board constructive criticism from the head designer, in addition to incorporating client feedback resulting in their satisfaction with the end product.

 

My other passions outside of work include illustration, going to the gym, cooking, baking, reading, listening to music, swimming and cheerleading.
