I’m an award winning third year graphic design student at the Cambridge School of Arts, but this isn’t what makes me stand out. I stand out because I’ve shown the ability and the tenacity to take on over several clients on a freelance basis.

This real experience has enabled me to actively connect my education with real, live projects, which not only has developed

my graphic design skills but also helped me gain valuable client management skills.

I’m a focused, self-motivating individual with a strong work

Education

As a digital native I’ve excelled in using complex design

packages. My education and endless hours of experimenting now mean I’m confident and proficient in the Adobe Creative Suites,

Honors & Awards

particularly InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. Outside the world of design I’m a big fan of extreme sports and I’m proud to say that I have worked with a few big names within the industry already (Identiti Bikes, Halo Wheels & TSG). I know where I’m going, I’m seeking to secure a position to build the foundation of my career within a sports organisation where I can not only bring my graphic design knowledge, but to also develop my current skill set further.

Although I am training to be a graphic designer I have had other part-time and full time jobs. But my main focus has been freelance jobs to help me get a

education

headstart of what it will be like to work with clients in the working world.
