I have been working as a freelance designer for the past 2 years but am looking for a role within a company.
I have a great deal of experience in graphic design and illustration having completed a vast amount of freelance projects including music posters, personal portraits, fashion illustrations, music album art works, children's books ect. I have also designed logos, apple ibook layouts, publication layouts, blog layouts and web banners. I specialise in free hand drawing and have a good knowledge of vector illustration. I have experience in designing for both web and print.
Through my Masters degree, I gained skills in developing briefs from scratch, working to tight deadlines and presenting ideas confidently. I also have a strong understanding of corporate identity and can work within tight guidelines. Working as a freelance designer requires a huge about of self motivation. I also have a large amount of experience in working in teams, as I have worked on a variety of team publications.

I enjoy exploring a great range of concepts and briefs. I have a huge passion for learning and endeavor to always improve my creativity.
