hello again

Recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree in Product Design from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, seeking opportunities to take the next step in securing a career in design.

 

My final year proved to be both challenging and rewarding because of the Covid pandemic. It presented obstacles to conventional learning that required a different mindset in creating alternatives to develop solutions to overcome them. 

 

In between my studies, I have interned for the NHS Tavistock and Portman Gender Identity Clinic (GIC) in London where I project managed an art competition for patients as well as using graphics skills to create promotional publications. Alongside this, I was commissioned by Santosa Wellness Centre in Edinburgh, to revamp their cafe menu. 

 

Covid-19 made a huge impact on these businesses, and it led to a change in how they engaged with social distancing. Consequently, I designed graphics for social media, produced magazine advertisements in addition to creating leaflets, documents and floor markers that illustrated the new procedures. These opportunities allowed me to build working relationships with my clients and fully understand their needs in order to finalise their briefs. 

Born and raised in Edinburgh, I moved home after completing my studies as I was eager to design in my hometown. I continued with my part time hospitality job, to gain additional experience while also trying to uncover potential design opportunities within other sectors and look forward to the next chapter in my design journey.
