My background is in photography. I was first introduced to photography way back in highschool and have been developing film and making prints ever since. I have had a variety of jobs in the photographic industry ranging from motion picture lab technician to portraits & weddings to commercial studio work to medical photography lab technician to newspaper photographer and most recently shooting virtual tours and panoramic images. I first started teaching, actually the unofficial teaching assistant, at the School of Modern Photography in Montreal back in the early 70's when I himself was still a student. The lead instructor recognized my ability to explain photographic principals and lighting techniques to other students and asked me to participate as the unofficial teaching assistant. The same thing more or less happened when I studied at Dawson College a number of years later. When I moved to Toronto in the early 80's, I found employment with a portrait studio company and when I completed my training and probation period I became the new West Toronto Photography Trainer. I also helped develop the corporate training policies & procedures for that company's North American operation. After working for the Metroland Group of Community Newspapers as a photographer for over 8 years, I began teaching at Humber College and in 2003 he recieved the Digital Imaging Training Centre's "Teacher of the Year" award. In 2005, I was the first ever recipient of the Dean Collins Photoshop Educator Scholarship Award presented by Scott Kelby, President of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP), at the PhotoshopWorld Convention in Boston September 2005.

Fran Thornton Details Date of birth: 24/11/1983 Address: 19 Sidney Street, Grantham, NG31 9BQ Email: franthornton1@hotmail.com Contact: 07794 354 021 Statement I am a hard working designer and illustrator who is technically pro?cient in classic draft techniques as well as having an excellent understanding of printmaking methods including screen print and etching. Since graduating I have worked as a design consultant gaining valuable commercial experience working on global projects for high profile clients such as Disney and P&O as well as smaller, local businesses at my current employment. I am a cheerful and approachable person who enjoys working as part of a team but am equally capable of working own my own. I am always eager to learn new skills and apply myself to my full potential. I am punctual, honest and reliable. Skills I have an excellent knowledge of Illustrator, Photoshop, Freehand and Indesign. Other programmes I have a basic knowledge of are Flash and Dreamweaver and am keen to learn more in order to further my personal and professional progress. Work Experience Print Bureau Ltd Feb 2011 - Present Head of Design I am responsible for all design and illustration work. Creating stationary and promotional material as well as fascias for local shops, bars and businesses. Projects Entire re working of Totemic’s staff training guide as well as presentation booklets and large-scale artworks to be placed in situ at their offices in England and Portugal including translation changes. This meant keeping in very close contact with project managers and owners to maintain the brand’s core ethics while including all the necessary information. Freelance UK Hair & Holistics June 10’ – Present Logos and packaging design for holistic therapy products and ongoing promotional work for the website. Freelance The Union Nov 10’ - present Ongoing artwork for sale at a well established Art & Design house. Lenco International Ltd Feb 09’ - June 10’ Design Consultant Whilst at Lenco it was my job to realise a client’s brief to an excellent standard. This included designing logos, complex diagrams, wayfinding material, shop and business fascias, posters, leaflets and illustrations. Projects I re-branded several shops restaurants and public areas on P&O cruise ships. I had to understand the client’s brief, analyse the target population and produce designs that were fit for purpose. I had to complete a number of large way-finding signs that had to be technically accurate and designed so they could be understood by people from many different countries and compliant with DDA legislation. The designs and signage I created were then constructed according to the details provided by me to the manufacturer. This taught me the importance of communication, not only from a business/ customer perspective but also from the creative consultancy to the manufacturing yard. I have also gained an excellent knowledge of guidelines put in place to account for legibility of signage and access for disability. During my time at Lenco any unusual projects or sales responses were assigned to me due to my creative ability. I enjoyed the challenge of brainstorming and coming up with ideas in order to win work and satisfy my clients. Education While at university I took full advantage of the facilities in order to gain maximum experience in all aspects of design, it was while I was in my final year at university that I was commended by Northern design for a competition entry. Lincoln University BA Hons: Illustration 2:1 grade Commendation from Northern Design (competition brief) Lincoln College of Fine Art and Design Foundation Course Pass Kings School, Grantham A-levels in both Art and English Literature 10 GCSE’s with grades A-C (including English and maths) Aspirations My intention for the immediate future is to be the best designer that I can be, and to learn as many techniques in order to be among the best in the ?eld. In the long run I intend to be well respected amongst my peers for the work that I have done and to be in demand for the work that I create and produce. To work my way up to the position of creative director at a well-respected design house would be ideal as I always wish to be surrounded by other creatives and be involved at the cutting edge of design.

I have over 25 years experience in the graphic design field. My background includes advertising for banking, non-profits and community projects. I also design speciality items such as t-shirts, hats, water bottles, etc. I keep my hourly rate low so I can continue to receive jobs. I love working from home, I enjoy my job and I'm not looking to make a fortune, just as long as my customer is happy, that is fine with me. I am currently working with the Greer Fire Department with their 100th anniversary logo as well. I only charged them $150 for my time. I work well with a budget.
