I am trained in Graphic Design and illustration, and have completed projects for small businesses and individuals. Currently, I am working on a six month contract with the True Volunteer Foundation on their “Empowerment through education” campaign. I have been instructed to head the design project, due to my graphic design skills. So far I have designed banners and posters as effective advertising for raising poverty awareness.
I am highly experienced with Adobe CS4 programs such as Illustrator, Photoshop, Indesign, Dreamweaver, HTML and CSS. I have also had many opportunities to develop my skills in typography, page layout and vector layer imagery skills through designs for businesses and business associates. In addition, I hold a certificate in I-media web design, achieving a Distinction for my quality of work.
As a professional artist, I am very keen on creating distinctly innovative design ideas and illustrations. My unique and creative flair was recognised through a collection of my own works displayed by “Showcase London”, which are a well known art gallery situated in East London. I feel that my alternative work experience and the responsibility I have undertaken has greatly helped developed my inter-personal, teamwork and communication skills.
My previous management roles with William Hill and Waitrose presented numerous situations to develop my problem-solving, time-management and leadership skills. It is my conviction that working with your firm will provide an exciting opportunity for me to employ these skills whilst continually refining my knowledge and experience within the industry through working both independently and within a team.
I am young, enthusiastic, hard-working and passionate about design and illustration, and I very much hope to demonstrate that I will be an asset to your firm.
