My Design Background
I have always had a passion for design. I remember entering a school art competition at a young age and feeling so excited about creating a masterpiece of Donald Duck and his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie. It was a game changer, a dead cert for 1st place, but, alas, I was disqualified. My miserable teacher thought I’d traced it. How life can be so cruel.
But the experience didn’t deter me and although my journey to being a graphic designer has been a bumpy one, it has been a hugely rewarding one too.
After completing my studies, I entered the world of work and spent 10 years in Creative Marketing, where I caught the Photoshop bug. Those years changed my life significantly. In 2009 I took a huge gamble and gave up my secure marketing job to join the design industry as a professional, with no major qualifications… Best. Decision. Ever. In 2010 I joined Studio One as a designer, working on a variety of projects with main focus on web & digital. After 4 years, I moved up the industry ladder to join Nephew Media as Creative Manager.
