SHOWREEL Click the screen below to view my video showreel, showcasing a small handful of my recent works. All packaging, product developement projects, artwork and photography is my own work.

I am a confident computer user on both PC and Mac platforms and have experience in managing large volumes of paperwork, doing so with the utmost attention to detail. I have an excellent phone manner, great organizational and time management skills as well as a natural ability to multitask. I am eager to learn new skills and am confident in my ability to adapt and create great working relationships. I believe I possess a positive, outgoing and friendly personality and I take pride in all areas of my work whilst constantly striving to improve my skills.

Since 2016, working as a graphic designer for Independence Studios in Sydney, I have created packaging for hundreds of products ranging from kids toys, health and beauty items, kitchen utentils, outdoor & camping gadets, high-end executive items and more! These products are currently available in most retail outlets in Australia which is something I find very proud of as a designer.

When starting a project, I would often receive a brief, either written or verbal, a sample of the product and a dieline. I would then photograph the product and also create lifestyle images to be incorporated in the packaging and also for marketing purposes. Using the style guide appropriate for that product, I would then design the packaging under the guidance of the creative director and buying team. Once the design has been approved, I would then create the finished artwork and liaise with the supplier often in China for production.

I believe that these skills and attributes demonstrate my suitability for this position and I would be very interested in discussing this position further with you at your earliest convenience. I am able to commence work with 2-3 weeks notice and am willing to be trained to meet the requirements of this position or obtain any security clearance neccary.

Previously working as a Full-time Graphic Designer for Independence Studios in Sydney, I am confident in my ability to work effectively both in a design team as an independent designer, taking projects from initial brief to finished product. I believe that my experience in that role has equipped me with skills that would make me an ideal candidate for this position. Those skills include studio photography, both with products and with models, image processing and advanced photo manipulation skills, proven experience creating complex catalogs, media releases and sales documents, a complete understanding of finished art practices etc.

CHRISTMAS KIT GROW YOUR OWN COOL CRYSTAL SNOWMAN IN 10 HOURS!

HOW DOES MAGIC CRYSTAL CHRISTMAS KIT WORK? The saturated solution of crystals and H2O (water) are drawn up the festive shapes (which are made out of absorbent blotting paper) by capillary action, and also by the force of gravity on the surface of the liquid in the dish. The increased surface area at the extremities of the shapes result in a greater evaporation rate of the solvent (H2O). The solute (crystals) are left behind on the surface of the blotting paper. There are special dyes in the tips of the shapes that are soluble in water. As the saturated solution moves upwards and outwards, the dyes are carried along to form the colours as the crystals grow, creating a fantastic effect.

I’ve had a number of opportunities to develop products which has been a great experience. Often in collaboration with an industrial designer or the buying team, a development begins with a sketch, a moodboard or a model which through a process of refinement and negotiation with the manufacturer, becomes what you see below.

BRAND DEVELOPMENT

During my time at Independence Studios I collaborated with the design team to create 4 catalogs (3 below and the 4th, being release as we speak), each approximately 200 pages, representing both our work with the isgift brand as well as other brands which we represent.

I have had the privilege of working with a number of startups and small businesses around Australia to create brand, expand on ideas and create marketing material.

PERSONAL ARTWORK Something that I’ve enjoyed developing over the last few years has been my technical and traditional art. I believe that this has furthered my overall creativity and appreciation of art, which has then been reflected in my graphic work.
