Brief Summary
Known for being flexible, hard working, creative, strategic, multi-disciplined, driven, punctual, having a good sense of humor, polite, respectful and outgoing. A wide variety of experience with Adobe Software is also present. Strong communication and team working skills to motivate and massage creative concepts to produce an outcome. Technical and problem-solving skills are also present, with an ever-present hunger to improve and learn other skills on the way. A workplace that challenges me to perform and improve my skills, and an environment that offers me to help others as much as learning from them. I have a thorough understanding of the latest social media and graphic software which has allowed me to build up a strong personal.

After graduating with a BSc (Hons) in Architectural Design Technology during the recession period, I started studying HND Graphic Design in 2009, where I have learnt a large amount of creative skills. It has been a steep learning curve but I have found something that I have passion for. Recently I have completed two years, working in the marketing department for Birmingham Metropolitan College, as a graphic designer. Many of my briefs included print and digital to promote new courses, academies and also partnerships. Alongside this I took the role of looking after the college’s Social Media network in the first year, which included; Facebook, Twitter, YouTube & Pinterest. I also had the chance to improve my camera skills, and was asked to take the photography & videography during special events. These were later used on microsites, presentations and on their social media sites.

Graphic Designer

My first year included working in the marketing department as a Graphic Designer to produce microsites for specific curriculum areas. Microsites for ‘The Academy at Kidderminster’, ‘Samsung Skills Academy’ were the main sites that I concentrated on. Alongside this, I also looked after the social media networks, which included Facebook. From an inactive Facebook page with 900 fans, I was able to get it active and take the numbers to 3000, with it still rising. I was also given the chance to work behind the camera, where I was asked to take photography and videography. All videos were edited in either Adobe After Effects or Final Cut Pro. Videos were either uploaded onto YouTube, microsites or social media usage.

In my second year at Birmingham Metropolitan College, I was mostly involved in producing prospectuses, courses directories, adverts within newspapers and online. I also designed 6/48/96 sheet billboards for the new academy ‘The Academy at Kidderminster’ and also the Summer Campaign for 2013. I also produced communication materials for partnered businesses, curriculum and for the principal or the College. Alongside this I was also involved in producing a small magazine for the English department.
