Towards the end of my 3rd year at UWE, a branding agency contacted the university as they were looking for a Junior Designer to join their team. I was very lucky to have been given the opportunity and after a couple of weeks interning I was offered a full time position. It was a steep learning curve as there were only five of us in the studio I had to learn a lot, fast. I spent two years working the agency and fast realised that it was better to be a big fish in a small pond, as I got a lot experience behind me quickly and this allowed me to move onto another role with confidence.

I moved to an agency which offered a wider spectrum of design solutions in order to broaden my skills and add a little variety into the work I was doing. Working at the agency I have gone on to be a Senior Designer/Art director. One thing that has always been important to me is that I continue to learn and I’ve gone on to complete courses in video direction, animation, interior design and learning to code in several languages. And, because of the variety of skills I’ve accumulated my job is now incredibly varied from day to day and I believe that’s what’s keeps me fresh and an important member of the team.
