Hello, and thank you for taking the time to view my online portfolio.
I am a highly motivated, hardworking individual who enjoys working as part of a team, but can also work alone unsupervised, using my own initiative. I have excellent communication skills and have the ability to learn new tasks quickly.
I always work to the highest standards ensuring my superiors are always pleased with the level of dedication and effort I put in. If given the opportunity to work for you I would become an effective/efficient member of your team, I feel I would be a good asset to any company or organisation.
My roots as a designer come from growing up drawing and painting, which I still do as well as visiting my local galleries and exhibitions that give me inspiration towards my own creative process. Staying fit and healthy is important to me and by doing so I play football with friends who I like to socialise with along with my family.
Over the past 15 years, I have had the opportunity to develop and hone my skills in different areas of web designing. Thanks to my rich and varied experience, I am today proficient in various types of graphic designing work, including websites, logo creation, marketing materials like flyers and brochures, and book covers.
