I communicate with ease and enjoy meeting new people and building relationships, from dealing with clients, colleagues, and managers to more socially. I am able to quickly build a rapport and communicate my point well. This enables a smooth working process and ensures my work meets the needs well.
I recognise that teamwork and discussion is important at every stage of the design process from conception, through to final artwork sign off. I also realise that within a project there can be a varying number of roles, depending on the size of project. I have the ability to work and contribute within a team, but also have the initiative to generate concepts and artwork independently with minimal direction.
I have been using the latest versions of Adobe’s professional design software including, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Acrobat for twelve years, fulltime and part time prior. I also have three and a half years experience using Adobe Premier and Aftereffects. I have developed a knowledge of best practice workflow and techniques when producing artwork for many different substrates, print formats and web based graphics. This enables me to work a great speed, which is continually praised in my current employment. I have also used Adobe Flash for one year. I am fluent with MS Word, MS Excel and have recent experience and training with Resolume Avenue (Live AudioVisual performance software). I am both PC and MAC literate.
I organise and plan my work well, using economical filing systems and project scheduling. I constantly work on multiple projects whilst never missing deadlines and without compromising on standard or accuracy of artwork. My organisation helps me to stay versatile when marketing opportunities arise with short notice. I have worked on projects of all size and length, from two months to two hours. Deadlines are paramount to me. I am prepared to work long hours to fulfil a project to exceed expectations, on time.
I am a naturally creative person, I find it easy to be inspired by my surroundings and peers. I like to think about unusual concepts around a given topic or situation. Research and contextualisation is important to me when brainstorming initial ideas to solve a problem. I believe art and design is a way of life, I enjoy continually fuelling my creativity by immersing myself in all forms of media, from art exhibitions and film, to software tutorials and magazines. I am passionate about my subject, and fully committed to my career. Read Less
