I am currently in my final year studying Graphic Communication and Illustration at Loughborough University. Alongside my studies, I have been working in the design industry for over two and a half years.

Through running my own freelance design business I have learnt how to present to clients and facilitate brand strategy workshops. I can assess a client’s wants and needs to deliver the best outcome, work to tight deadlines, balance multiple projects and schedule my time and tasks accordingly. I am a hard worker driven by my goals, passion for creativity and desire to be the best at what I do. I will take on a challenge at any opportunity and will always be learning something new whether that is a new software or design discipline.

I feel that I am a natural leader as evidenced by my experience leading creative teams and managing and art directing projects. However, I am also very adaptable to working in a team and enjoy collaborating with creative people. An example of this is when I co-hosted a weekly Instagram Live where I would informally talk about design, creativity and freelancing with guests and my co-host. This is something that I enjoyed and it gave me a platform to share my creative thinking and process. This is one of many personal projects that I have undertaken to fill my free time with more opportunities to develop my creative skills and knowledge.

I have a strong passion for branding and enjoy working on projects that make an impact on the world. You will find in my portfolio a lot of work with a sustainability focus as this is something that I am passionate about and actively learning more about.

Currently looking for my next design challenge
