My view on my creative side would be to create a mere glimmer of my style and imagination into my drawing's and designs with a small hint of modern flare. I had studied at Loughborough University in Design Engineering, which gave a wide range insight into technical abilities. I have attained a 1st Class (Hons) degree in Product Design from the University of Northampton, which has enabled me to push even further into creating interesting and high level work. I am a technical thinker with a hands on attitude for success.
Hard-working product designer! I am able to use my excellent design skills and ideas to work in multi-disciplinary teams or as an individual to achieve results that are challenging, exciting and most importantly fun.
I design and create unique products that are playful, momentous, and finished to a high standard with plenty of space for newer creations.
I aim to work in a creative environment with other individuals where I can learn new skills, confidently work through my design process from design brief to concept to project completion.
