Hello… and thanks for taking the time to read my bio. My name is Duncan and I’m a designer specialised in packaging and branding. During my studies at the Lahti Institute of Design in Finland I gained knowledge in concept generation, structural and branding design with an emphasis in user-centricity, innovative concepts and eco-efficient design. I believe my main strength lies in structural design however I have pushed myself to develop as a graphic and branding designer and believe I can hold my own in both areas. I love to develop concepts where structure and graphics can grow simultaneously to achieve a complimentary outcome.
Since completing my studies in 2016 I was awarded the opportunity to work as a packaging design intern for Nestlé and Stora Enso over the course of one year. This has been a highly valuable learning curve for me and I believe I developed my skills immensely during this time. Having successfully completed all the assignments tasked to me has proven my ability to carry the pressures of working in industry on my shoulders whilst working to tight targets. I was also commended on my ability to integrate well as a team and have made lifelong friends while working within these two global giants.
Every designer has a method that works for them. For me I believe that the key to my success in design lies not only with discipline, hard work and practice but with a healthy conscious. In my personal life I enjoy a wholesome lifestyle that encompasses intense physical exercise, healthy diet and mindfulness. I believe in meaningful relations and experiences before material possessions. I’m driven not by accumulation of wealth but by the opportunity to take on new challenges, discover more about myself, to make positive changes and to help others. Alignment of a healthy mind, body and soul lie at the core of my values and in the way that I approach life and creativity. Read Less
