Summary: July 2011 - Present Freelance - Manchester
Most recently I have been working as a freelance designer for various agencies around the Manchester area, which has seen me work on interactive pdf brochures, advertising, corporate brochures, web layouts and branding.
2010 - 2011 The Market Creative - Manchester
Working on projects for the likes of Moben, Sharps, Dolphin, Kitchens Direct and Jonhsons Dry cleaners my role was to generate designs and ideas which I would develop into strong creative concepts alongside a small creative team, including winning a £12m advertising pitch along the way. With a strong emphasis on layout, typography and colour schemes I helped create consistent and professional
designs whilst integrating them through branding, advertising, packaging, instore displays, brochures and direct mail. Other tasks included designs for online banners, tv storyboards and photography, continually showing the desire and ambition to take on new challenges.
2009 - 2010 Mediaplanet - Amsterdam
My job was to design 16-24 page supplements for 2 of Holland’s national newspapers with a market of 1.2million readers. With great attention to detail, I was responsible for the layout, photography and overall look of the supplements including a large number of adverts/advertorials for clients including Vodafone and Fujifilm, taking all work right through to print. Tight deadlines with long hours and pressure periods strengthened my experience as a designer, whilst my
knowledge of editorial design, advertising and marketing excelled substantially.
2008 - 2009 Maestro - Amsterdam
This internship with an international Design and Advertising agency in Amsterdam gave me a great introduction to the design industry, working to tight deadlines and meeting client needs. Working as part of an experienced team, I was
involved in a lot of creative projects including advertisements, photography shoots, web designs, packaging, and branding.
