About Me

I am a second year student in Ulster University studying Interaction Design. I have a passion for Graphic Design and Branding, so I am always eager to develop my skills in this field of work.

Skills I have

I have been trained in many areas of software throughout my education, but my main area of expertise lies with Adobe Illustrator. I have used this software for most of my modules, which consisted of Typography, Design and Branding etc.

I am forever learning new pieces software available to me. And this is what I enjoy doing. I have a passion for creating designs from scratch and watching it progress through the stages to the final product. I have been doing this from my Foundation Degree in 2017, which kicked off my love Multi-media.
