Work Experience

Zest Promotional

Graphic Designer

Working as the sole graphic designer for a promotional merchandise company, my work was extremely varied in scope; requiring me to (at times) learn new skills such as HTML, CSS, PHP, search engine optimisation, HTML email building, and the management of external contractors.

• Total redesign & rebuild of the company website. I was responsible for everything from setting up the website hosting, choosing the platform for the new website, the actual design and build of the website, as well any maintenance or outsourcing required. This saved the company thousands of pounds that would have been required to have the website built externally.

• I was responsible for setting up and managing the outsourcing of certain tasks, and ensuring that the contracted work was completed properly & on time.

• General brand design work, including full design of company stationery, any company brochures, leaflets, ad campaigns, etc.

Tetra Marketing

Graphic Designer

I worked on a large range of projects here, ranging from HTML emails to large-scale graphics for exhibition stands (including 3D mockups for the clients to view). I worked on a number of websites, apps, and web ads but much of my work was print-based. I dealt with many catalogues and brochures, including the numerous translated versions of each.

Clients here ranged in scale from local dentists, to large international materials & research suppliers - with more work on the larger scale than on the small. Most clients were B2B, but we had a handful of B2C clients also.
