Since graduating in July 2005 I have worked as President of Northumbria Students' Union, an elected sabbatical position that gave me a huge amount of experience in management of a large business, the design of services and marketing. Having gained some important management experience doing this role, I am now focussing more directly on design and looking for branding/product design work in the London area.
