As a Senior Graphic Designer my job includes creative thinking and designing printed material which is accurately artworked ready for production. I also apply the same level of accuracy when designing websites, UX/UI designs and online adverts ensuring my designs are pixel perfect with optimized images ready for developers to build. Designing logos and branding is also a key part of my role and I have experience working with large corporate brand guidelines and understand the importance of brand values and visual consistency.
I am familiar with time logging systems and have experience in managing time critical projects ef ciently. I also ensure project les are archived correctly. In the past I have managed up to 3 members of staff in a professional manner that achieves positive creative results. Planning and delegating are essential to ensuring that creative concepts are presented and delivered through to nal output accurately and on time.
At the start of my career my main responsibilities were solely designing for print and web. This is all still a fundamental part of my job today, but my enthusiasm and dedication to developing my skills combined with experience on large projects like TV campaigns and events means I can now offer so much more. I’ve collaborated with marketing teams and lm crews generating ideas and coming up with concepts and messaging. I also offer photography and have been the senior photographer on a range of shoots photographing sports personalities
and models. I have also been heavily involved in the planning and production of TV campaigns featuring actors, extras and worked on various video projects featuring TV personality David Dickinson.
My other skills also include designing PowerPoint and Keynote Presentations ready to either present or as templates that clients can work with. I also produce motion graphics using Adobe After Effects and I have edited footage, synced audio and rendered videos on a variety of projects using Adobe Premiere and Adobe Media Encoder.
My creative role in the nancial sector for Dollar Financial UK and The Money Shop means I know how important it is to approach creative communications in an industry heavily regulated. Being compliant and responsible while generating sales in this sector is a challenge, but in my time working with them I saw them grow from 250 to 550 UK stores.
I’m a keen learner and there have been times on certain projects that I have had to adopt a ‘sink or swim’ mentality in order to get the job done on time. A good example of this was when I have had to step in and direct a crew
of 4 at 2 conferences for 200+ UK store managers and had only 3 days of preparation. I had to become familiar with audio equipment 2 days before the event and record audio separate to video footage. It was then edited and synced that same day to be shown at the Conference. This was the rst time I had done anything like this, I’d say we did a great job and got invited to the party at the end with the managers. I believe that nothing is as bad as it seems if you think of things as problems then straight away the situation is labeled as something that can’t be solved. Problems can’t be solved, but Puzzles can! In this industry there are loads of puzzles some happen when you least expect it, but in the end if you apply some rational and positive thinking they can all be solved.
When it comes to Social Media, I am familiar with using third party applications such as Hootsuite to ensure updates are scheduled and delivered via the appropriate channels.
Here are a few of the brands I’ve had the pleasure to work with; Barracuda Networks, Eon, The Money Shop, Dollar Financial UK, PESS, CCH Wolters Kluwer, Sweet & Maxwell, Iris Software Deafblind UK, Dairy Crest, Eurodix, M&S, Brosch Direct, St Ivel, Silver Spoon, TUX Auto
