I am a enthusiastic graphic design student with 2 years experience within the design industry. I am highly motivated and strive to create clean and professional design outcomes. During my time as a student I have been privileged to work with both local and international clients across the world. I have a excellent knowledge of Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. I feel I am a hardworking and an adaptable individual who maintains a professional manner in both college and the workplace. I am able to work under pressure in a methodical and responsible way in order to meet deadlines. My strengths within design are branding and identity, packaging design, editorial design and advertising campaigns.
