What sort of work are you doing?
The studio I work at is small which allows me to get my hands on a wide range of work: corporate identities, magazine spreads, annual reports, brochures, stationary, shop fittings.
What sort of deadlines do you work to?
It really depends on how well organised the clients are and where we plan on printing. It can be as short as half a day or it can drag out to more than four weeks.
What do you love about Graphic Design?
I love how the answer to a brief isn't in a text book. I love how graphic design reaches so many different mediums. I love creating something from nothing.
What do you find inspiring?
I find people inspiring and what they have to bring to design. There are so many creative ways of answering the brief - everyone brings their own personality and style to design.
How has Shillington helped you gain employment?
Shillington has given me a greater understanding of graphic design, the practical skills required in this industry and the confidence to execute a response to a design brief - all that is left is to gain experience. They also helped me produce a great portfolio.
