ABOUT ME LIKES DISLIKES DESIGN AND MORE...

LIKES

DISLIKES

I’ve always been an admirer of Saul Bass, especially his film posters for Vertigo and more recently Burn after reading. Stefan Sagmiester has also been a personal favourite of mine, with his incredible installations. More recently I have started to follow the incredibly beautiful pieces of work by Sam Winston, who I was lucky enough to meet after a seminar of his. I have a passion for music and my favourite bands at the moment include Arcade Fire, The Drums and Best Coast. I have had a soft spot for classic rock from a young age and enjoy work from The Who, The Kinks and Led Zeppelin. As well as music, Films are a particular passion of mine (Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction being my favourite film of all time). As well as being creative, I love football both watching and playing.

When it comes to design I keep an open mind to concepts and outcomes but there are a few pieces of work that I am not a fan of. The first being the London 2012 olympics logo which apart from being over priced doesn’t symbolise what we are trying to achieve or any of the English spirit for which we are renoned for. I also find that when it comes to movie posters some designers become lazy and stick to the convention of having the actor/actress on the front with an explosion and a large heading. That is what I like so much about Saul Bass’s film posters because he tried something different and unique. When it comes to music I am not a fan of generic, repetative songs that have no meaning or soul and are only produced to gain record companies massive paychecks.

E D U C AT I O N THE JOURNEY AND SKILLS PICKED UP A L O N G T H E WAY . . .


P R I M A RY S C H O O L My first school was Waycroft Primary School which I attended in 1994. My house was a thirty second walk from the school and at that point it was among the best public schools in Bristol. It provided me with a thirst for knowledge and important relationships. I left in 2001 where the journey continued.

F O U N DAT I O N DEGREE I opted to do a foundation degree rather than go straight to University to save money. City of Bristol College introduced me to all aspects of design. They also taught me how to use Adobe InDesign, Dreamweaver and Flash they also improved my knowledge of Illustrator and Photoshop. I balanced more than one brief at a time, this was important for my time management.

S E C O N D A RY S C H O O L

SIXTH FORM COLLEGE

I decided to attend Broadlands School, the main reason being it was easy to get to and most of my friends were going there. But it also seemed like a place that would help me to push my academic skills as well as physical ones. It was in year 10 after doing my work experience at Picador ( Graphic Design Consultants) where I first gained interest an pursuing graphic design. It was an environment where design was a product of my imagination.

In 2006 I started at St.Brendan’s Sixth Form College where I studied in Product design, English Language and Literature, Maths and Drama at A-level. When in Product design lessons I always found myself enjoying print based design and onscreen creation more than product making in the workshop. When at Picador I learnt the very basics of Adobe Illustrator, so when I joined Sixth Form they taught me how to use Photoshop and extend my skills in Illustrator.

BA HONS DEGREE I finished my degree in Plymouth this year and gained great experience in presentations as well as having critiques and most of all creating pieces of work that I am proud of which illustrates exactly what kind of a designer I am. The experience of me moving away has helped me to grow up and take on hard lifetime challenges such as debt/money issues, as well as cooking, cleaning and washing. In the design

side of life, I have now got used to working long hours day in day out and balanced that with socialising and enjoying life as well as a bit of time for myself.

ACCESS GRANTED


JJB Sports - Sales Assistant

Hooper Award

2007 - 2010

2009

During my 3 years at JJB Sports, my punctuality was always exceptional I rarely turned up late and had very few sick days. I was a versatile and flexible member of staff, I worked extra hours when needed and even holidays such as Boxing Day. I worked in every department at the store from being on the door to deliveries. I didn’t have one disciplinary or warning. I handed in my resignation in September 2010 to leave for University.

I have entered a few competition briefs if the past few years. First being for the Hooper Award, the brief was to design a piece of direct mail for Crisis to get people to donate to help homeless people get off of the street. I created a piece of direct mail that when opened, pops up into a money box.

Picador Design Consultants July 2006 As I mentioned before I did a short stint of work experience at Picador Design Consultants, it was very inspiring and it ignited my passion for design. They gave me a few projects to work on, the first being to create a new identity for Davar- a Jewish Cultural Institute in Bristol and the South West. It was only a mock project but they were pleased with my outcomes. I was also told to design some birthday invitations for the manager which he was pleased with.

Freelancing 2008-Present I have done a few real freelance projects for local businesses and charities such as HAWKS Hartecliffe and Withywood Kick Start (who are a drugs and alcohol agency). For them I created a new set of leaflets and also designed a poster. I have also created the logo for the Hartcliffe Angling Club. The last project I worked on was to create a pin up poster for property developers, who were advertising new apartments in Turkey.

Harley Competition 2010 I then did a competition created for Harley to create a new identity to celebrate the City of Bristol. They wanted something that was contemporary and had to include the tag line ‘The living city’. I created an identity that used abstract marks that resembled the new Pero Bridge or Horn Bridge as its known in Bristol. International Poster Competition 2010/2011 Finally earlier this year I entered the infamous International Poster Competition- Water is life. This year’s competition was to create a poster or collection of posters that created awareness of the fact that nearly a billion people on the planet do not have access to clean drinking water. My posters used tea stained illustrations mixed with typographic facts that gave a shock impact which I think is necessary in getting people to think and get involved in changing this terrible crisis.

W H AT N E X T ? WAT E R M E A N D I W I L L G R O W . . .

My journey of formal education has come to the end and I am now ready to enter the world of Graphic Design. I am a very diligent and hard working individual that can use lateral and conceptual thinking to solve any design problem that’s in my way. I have always been punctual and my past employers said I have an outstanding attitude. Towards work all I need is a little guidance and an employer to believe in me and I will put in 150% everyday, rain or shine. I have a good knowledge in most Adobe packages and have been using InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop for several years. As well as having good design skills I also have great presentation skills, I am confident and don’t mind speaking to a client on a one to one basis or talking to a group. I have great people skills and would like to think that I give off a friendly, easily approachable vibe.

I can work on my own or as a group and whatever the length of the brief I will create a beautiful design to fit it. I believe I would be a great addition to your team. With a little nurturing I will grow into a well rounded designer that conquers any problem in my way. I hope I have left a good impression and if you wanted to get in contact with me my details are on the back page.
