Skills

Digital Design

If you have an idea for a billboard banner or want images for social media then chances are I will be able to fulfill your need. I also dabble in mocking up webpages.

Video Production

Whether it is a short animated advertisement, a motion graphics piece or a talking head video (or something else entirely) then you've come to right place.

Print Design

No matter what anyone says, print is not dead. On that note, I can also design for physical products. If you need booklets, leaflets, menus or posters then I can help.

Image Manipulation

The bread and butter of any design project, manipulating images comes in many forms. From photo restoration to image composites and resizing, I can more than likely help.

Blogging

Being a designer isn't just about making things look pretty. I blog on occasion, usually for FindAPhD.com and FindAMasters.com about interviewing academics and pop-culture.

Coding

HTML 5, CSS, Bootstrap and a dash of Javascript. Whilst my creative background is not in coding, having working knowledge about how a website is made is extemely important.

Independent Learning

I believe learning is a lifelong experience. I contantly strive to learn new skills or improve on my current ones using short courses, video tutorials and digital resources.

Time Management

One of the most important soft skills is the ability to manage time. I can multitask effectively on multiple projects and aim to design to a strict timeframe (and on time!)

Interpersonal Skills

Friendly and approchable, my none-creative work background is in customer service so I know the importance of getting to know people and building professional relationships.
