SKILLS I am a hardworker and very flexible within reason I am positive, polite and thoughtful. I have worked in a graphic design company for a year before University. The company seemed very impressed with the work I was able to do for them. I continued to work for them every summer. From this I have gained a level of professionalism and responsibility. Some of my work was chosen by clients including identity logos, website design, print campaigns. When designing for a brief my research is always in depth so as to fully justify my solution I am skilled in the software of Illustrator, Photoshop, and Indesign

I am skilled in the area of typography and layout. A keen eye and understanding for building a company brand and identity I have leadership qualities but am also able to give of my very best as a team player. I have been given the role as team leader in team projects and have performed to the greatest of my ability. I allow people to communicate their ideas, but I am able to recognise when an idea is good or bad. I like to motivate people to do well. I care about my work and take pride in it

‘Island Anatomy’ ‘Island Anatomy’ is a series of five books. They are about a peculiar society, a Barbadian society. It is a study about the functions and disfunctions that occur in the small community of Barbados. Each of the Books deal with a certain topic. These topics are; Landscape, Community, Stability, Segregation and Innovation. Each book reveals a further insight.

I like to play with typography and express meaning through the use of a particular type or how it is strucured. Here I have fully justified my paragraph to echo the meaning of the text. It speaks of the connection and meeting of ants and how this connection is similar to that of the people of Barbados. The spaces highlight the meeting of characters.

‘Origin’ ‘Origin’ is a fictional Chocolate Brand. A Brand Identity Poster Campaign was created as well as a logo. The title of the campaign is ‘dare you’. The logo was created from a hand written ink brush stroke and is suppose to capture the image of a cocoa pod in a loose way.

Workplacement This logo is for an art and furniture company ‘Manipura’, It’s website actually won a regional award.

D&AD Brief ‘One Village’ This was a Brand Identity brief for The Body Shop which asked from the designers to almost repatriate the campaigns back to their earlier messaging. This concept for the campaign, ‘One Village’ suggests a global familiarity and embrace. Body Shop is known for its ethical trade.

This was a brief given to us by Navyblue Design. Sports Podge is an anuual social event. ‘Cheers Sports Podge’ is the name created for one of the themes for the year 2009. The word ‘Cheers’ plays on two different meanings, cheers as in a toast to good health and cheers from a crowd or excited individual. This theme is solely about the passion of sports expressed through words. An expressive typographic approach was chosen for this theme. Even the logo above expresses the word ‘cheers’ through typography in the characters of the ‘e’, ‘0’ and ‘9’.
