WORK EXPERIENCE

2010 - 2013 FREELANCE
As a freelancer, I’ve had to develop my own brand quickly and efficiently to portray myself as a professional individual. Taking on a range of clients from sports professionals’ website design to the rebranding of small businesses. All of which have taught me interpersonal skills as well as other aspects of design. 

2010 - 2013 SMACK AGENCY - INTERN London, Covent Garden
Over this three year period I returned to this agency during the summer weeks to act as an intern. Working here I have taken a supporting role to the designers helping with idea generation. Completing tasks with strict and quick turn around times effectively to a high standard. 

2017 - 2019 BLIND MICE DESIGN - DESIGNER Coventry, Canal Basin 
At Blind Mice Design I have taken a central role in a small studio as a creative thinker and designer. My tasks have included completing work to a very high standard from start to finish. Generating ideas, creating and implementing these for Illustrations, Leaflets and other printed materials for the Herbert Art Gallery, Old Grammar School and Transport Museum, all located in Coventry. This has seen me directly work with clients and tailor designs to their desires and aid them to make the most effective decisions within the content itself. Also working closely alongside Warwick University SU and Coventry University I have engaged with many projects, working with exhibition designers to create wayfinding vinyls. This position has allowed me to work alongside printers, clients etc and have a greater insight into completing tasks independently. Whilst many of my tasks have been print-based I have also worked closely with several clients to produce websites and an online presence. Coding basic websites in full but also using templates and changing these to suit a client's needs. Overall my time here has been well spent, learning many new and important skills to kickstart my career in this industry.
