Nixon Design

Graphic Design Intern

I did a placement at Nixon Design Cornwall in graphic design over the summer between my second and third year in my BA (hons) degree. I found this a massive eye opener to the industry and its fast pace process. I found working as team a lot of fun and inspirationally satisfying.
May 2010 - September 2010 Hayle, United Kingdom

H Tempest Photography

Image Editor / Retoucher / Optical Image Processing

I found this job very interesting and my passion for photography has only grown stronger ever since. My passion for attention to detail with photography and optical / digital editing started here. I edited photographs using software and occasionally optically in the traditional manner using a dark room. Unfortunately this job was seasonal due to the main client being school/university pupil photography.

Printshop

Traditional Silk Screen Printer

I started a modern apprenticeship as traditional silk screen printer just after I left college. I loved the aesthetics of real ink and beautiful stock. I feel this position has given me my hunger for a perfect print finish on all my designs. I found traditional silk screen is so pleasing in so many ways.
September 2001 - December 2002 Newquay, United Kingdom

Printshop

Art-worker and Graphics artist

When I worked as silk screen printer I was appointed the company's art-worker and graphics artist. This entailed redrawing all the print work that came in to a superior standard that could be printed. Silk screen printing requires you to draw every single colour layer to a hairline in precision, this is where my thorough attention to detail grew. I still apply this passion to my current designs and art-working for all types of application.

Windsor Studios

Free hand Graphics and art-working

As I finished school I did work experience with a designer and hand rendering signmaker. This opened my eyes to the use of paint and the beauty of brush applied art work. I really enjoyed the aesthetics of hand rendered graphics and the freedom away from a screen. I will always continue to pursue the pleasure of free hand graphics and artwork.
