I am a graduate of the Griffith University Film School (Bachelor of Screen Media Production) and I have worked for the past 5 years in the Film and Television industry as a Production Designer. In my time as a Production Designer I have been nominated for many awards and have worked on many festival successful films. It was through my desire to give more to these films that I discovered my love for Graphic Design, and about a year ago I decided to take a step back from making films and focus on Graphics.
I feel my strengths in Graphics lay in aesthetics (i.e. the placement of pictures and text in correlation to each other) re-sizing (changing elements of a design to fit into different sizing dimensions) and team work. I believe that team work is the corner stone of any successful business as I fell that without constructive criticism and collaboration ideas can sometimes seem one dimensional or not fulfill their potential. I use primarily the Adobe Creative suit, which I have version CS5 on my own personal computer. I also have experience in management, in both the film industry and in business.
Although I don’t have an official Graphic Design degree, I have a lot of unofficial experience and buckets full of passion. I have a large working knowledge of aesthetics and Photoshop, as well as the ability to learn extremely quickly and independently.
I am a passionate and motivated person who believes that working any aspect of film helps me to release my creativity. I also am a strong believer of team work as I believe that team work is the corner stone of any successful business as I fell that without constructive criticism and collaboration ideas can sometimes seem one dimensional or not fulfill their potential. However this said, I am also a very independent spirited individual who works well independently, although I still appreciate feedback.
