I have recently graduated with BA Honours in Visual Communication and Design and have a passion for using technology and creativity to produce engaging solutions. I am skilled in traditional and digital illustration, graphic design, photography and animation.
My design experience includes designing company logos, mascots, websites, promotional materials (e.g. posters, leaflets, business cards), location branding and children’s book illustrations. The latter has led to the creation of an award-winning children’s book which helps link storytelling to nature and local folklore.
I have held various customer facing positions in retail environments, which has helped me develop my interpersonal and selling skills.
King Rollo Films provided me with training and experience in the use of CelAction and Adobe Photoshop to create a pilot for a children’s animation. This has given me excellent grounding to produce motion graphics and characterisation.
Through my 18 month internship focusing on Learning Technology at Inverness College UHI, I have gained significant experience in working directly with subject matter experts - designing interactive online courses and multimedia content. This has inspired me to study software scripting with the goal of creating applications and build a career as a Software/Web Developer.
In light of my profile and background, I am looking for opportunities to develop my programming skills, utilising my creative and technical abilities.
