My degree ignited a creative spark i never knew i had and showed me things that inspired me, starting me on the road i'm now on. After completing my degree i fell into a job i really didn't enjoy and after 2 years i needed a change. Being your own boss always intrigued me and so I started Kakusei Design in 2011, turning my passion into something more rewarding. When you enjoy something you naturally put more effort in and this makes what i do so enjoyable.
Design is not just a job or an interest to me, design is my life, it fascinates me. I can't help but notice layout, typography and graphics in every day life. This gives me the inspiration i need for my own designs.
We are bombarded by visual imagery in todays society and I think design is taken for granted; i wonder how many people actually stand back and appreciate the time and effort that goes into what they see every day. I believe in design, design that makes you happy and smile, design that is simple, eye-catching and more importantly sells.
I have a great love of typography, the huge range that text can be arranged on white space fascinantes me. Some women lust over shoes, i drool over typography. I am passionate about what i do and have high standards that i put these into my work to satisfy my own creative needs.
Area Covered: .
Work Experience Summary: I have worked with many companies and organisations in the past including theatre groups and local band nights. This was mainly in the print field designing their posters, flyers, leaflets and such, but also a few websites along the way.
Summary: After completing my GCSE's and A-Levels i went on to study at the University of Derby. I didn't know what i wanted to do and so chose a vague degree hoping that i would 'fall' into something i enjoyed. This was the case and after a few modules on design i decided to choose the print route and study graphic and web design in more detail. After University i further trained and gained an Adobe Credited Certificate in CS5 Dreamweaver and Flash.
