Work Experience

The King's Community Church

Voluntary Graphic Designer

I produced web and print work for the church which was distributed both internally and externally. I created video announcements which are shown at each service and improved upon the quality of video announcements by creating a title sequence which reflected the values of the church. I improved the quality of literature distributed from the church by creating a new welcome pack for new visitors. I taught Photoshop classes to other members of staff and all round tried to raise the standard of corporate communication. I took projects from conception to completion, contacting printers and other outside organisations. I used my skills in Adobe Creative Suite particularly in Photoshop, Illustrator and Premier Pro.
