I am a highly motivated design professional seeking to establish my skill-set within a creative company. I would prove myself to be an invaluable asset within a design team. My entrepreneurial skills have aided in the successful development of a small business in the wedding industry, designing and creating unique wedding and occasion stationery. I have combined my artistic and conceptual skills across a range of creative disciplines, including computer based design, freehand illustration, 2D/3D visualisation and marketing practice, proving myself to be successful in adapting to a variety of design related tasks. Since starting my business I have focused on researching market trends and customer demand. I believe that I translate trends successfully into new designs and work on these from initial concept through to final production. My skills have considerably developed through studying at Masters level and since building an independent business. I have experience in running all aspects of a small business, including branding design, marketing, administration and development, communications, accounts and client-lead design briefs. Having good knowledge and experience of customer interaction within the wedding and events industry I am confident in working directly with clients. I also have good experience of working with wedding and event planners, corporate clients, and agencies acting on behalf of a client. My portfolio includes examples of recent wedding stationery collections, bespoke designs and styled photo shoots. You will also see examples of illustration, which I incorporate into my stationery designs and also supply for the construction design industry. I regularly contribute to social networking platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus, and write my own blog. I have always had a passion for art and design and since studying a degree in Fine Art and a Masters degree in Urban Design my conceptual skills that stemmed from this initial passion have greatly matured. Through university studies I have developed excellent research, communication and presentation skills. I am an enthusiastic and conscientious person, skilled at handling multiple projects at once and with ability to work in a fast paced environment.
