I love all aspects of design and like to consider myself as versatile in my creative capabilities as a committed young individual. There is nothing I love more than nailing a client brief, creating a successful design solution that caters for the users needs or highlighting issues that are often overlooked, especially when it comes to animal rights and welfare.
Recently, I participated in a 100 day challenge where I created 100 geometric animal portraits with the intent of creating awareness around a range of endangered species that could become extinct in the not to distant future. This project explored a wide range of different animal species and groups, focusing on the population, habitat, an interesting fact about each one and the IUCN status.
This passion for animals and wildlife has spilled over into my own commercial venture of creating personalised pet portraits. I create these portraits in my spare time as a hobby as I truly love animals and understand the love people have for their pets as I to share this same love for my animals. This hobby also helps me to create strong relationships with my clients, enabling me to meet their needs, take on their feedback and create final work to the highest standard.
I consider my strengths to be in graphic design, typography, digital design (creating websites and wireframes) illustration, branding, experience design, infographics and product design. I have had the opportunity to work on many commercial projects, which have involved branding, product design, packaging, marketing strategies, web design, creative thinking, illustration and so on. I look forward to what the future holds for my career in the design industry. I love a challenge and hope to learn as much as I can as I develop on my journey as a young designer.
Thank you for your time.
