After graduating with a BA(Hons) in Illustration and now with 20 years of graphic design experience, I have a versatile skill set which spans across digital and print design as well as illustration and video. I have a good knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite, Indesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Premiere Pro and After Effects.
I have a background of working in lots of different industries, from designing artwork for games and packaging to magazine and advert design, to event displays and banners. With an art working background, I can take projects from concept to completion via digital and print.
Logo, Branding and Presentations
As part of projects at Learn by Design, I developed logos and branded items for programmes and workshops. As part of these projects, we worked with industry partners, so projects would need to use brand guidelines and incorporate their brands within the artwork.
My training is in illustration, where I started with watercolour and pencil, which then evolved to producing digital illustration using a drawing tablet. When I worked at House of Marbles I would create drawings for the games and packaging, as well as developing my graphic design knowledge. Since then I've incorporated illustration into most job roles. Drawing has also been useful for my graphic design work because I could create icons and elements to accompany designs.
