My name is Robert Hillman. I am a BA Hons Illustration student at Wolverhampton University, graduating in September. I studied BTEC National Diploma Graphic design for a period of two years at Halesowen College and qualified with a Distinction. During this time I learnt how to use adobe products such as Photoshop, illustrator and Indesign. I used many methods and materials for my briefs, gaining more knowledge on the best possible ways to tackle them.
I recently worked for Cleison Web Design who are based on Broad Street in Birmingham. My main responsibilities are creating designs such as logo's, brochures, posters, flyer's, leaflets, menus, banners and t-shirt designs. I also have experience for designing website graphics and working closely with web designers. For example, I worked with one of the web designers in the company on a recent project to produce a website for The Best Baguette which included a 6 page website, new logo and branding.
I have also had some experience in working in a photography studio on live projects with clients; I gained some experience with communicating with clients and discussing projects. At the beginning of the year I had some of my uni work exhibited at "The Public" art exhibition for ITV Fixtures, Works Of Ours. These were on show for 2 weeks and seeing other artist work really inspired me to push myself, to think of concepts to make my work become the best.
As an illustration student, I have developed my skills in using watercolours, pencils collage and simply experimenting but I still use adobe products to mix the two methods together. I am currently developing my skills in InDesign. I am a person who you can rely upon being punctual and hardworking. I work well in team situations but have the ability and enthusiasm to work independently. I have a good sense of humour with caring nature and a polite attitude towards others and always maintain confidentiality. I enjoy a fresh challenge and I am eager to learn new skills.
