I have 3+ years experience in both branding design and digital working for small and large agencies. My last post was at a small studio in Sheffield that specialised in branding.
Due to the size of the team I had a very hands on approach with all aspects of branding, right from the ideas stage, briefs all the way through the logo design, type and even web and animation. I am young (26) but have had the opportunity to turn my hand to lots of projects with a broad range of clients. My strengths are in being able to adapt my skills to whatever the job needs from me. In that way I don't see my self as having a personally defined style but I get a great pleasure from making bold and simple graphics.
A backbone of my practice is typography which I try to exploit to my advantage in every project, whether it's a custom typeface, hand drawn word mark or picking the right font for the job. I studied BA (Hons) Graphic Design at Leeds College of Art which gave me a great grounding in design and print. I also did a course in film before that which I picked up animation skills and editing. I don't use them often but they can come in handy.
A personal highlight of my career so far was being able to create a huge typographic mural for a UK based charity called Grimm & Co. The whole job was aimed at inspiring young children to engage in imaginative writing. I have a high level of proficiency in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. As well as After Effects, Premiere Pro, Final Cut, Powerpoint, Keynote, Pen, Paper, Brush and Ink.
