Graphic design is something I found out I love doing after taking a design class in undergrad. I love the challenge of creating new ways to present a picture or and idea as well as being able to design and edit my own pictures, posters, brochures and newsletters.
The work that I do incorporates the Adobe Photoshop and InDesign software. In addition to the posters and brochures that are presented on this website, I have included some of the work that I did for a Digital Design class. The class helped me to understand the basic elements of good design, typography, and visual communication and helped me to develop creative and critical thinking in a design context.
I’ve always had a camera in my hands since I was very young. Whether it was a disposable, point-and-shoot or D-SLR camera, I continued to challenge myself to discover new ways of taking pictures.
Below are pictures that I have taken throughout the last year. Some were used in promotional materials for a company, others were used in a college exhibit, but most were just for fun. All pictures were taken with my Cannon Digital Rebel- T2i.
‘What Have You Done Today?’ is a video that I directed and edited for my MA Public Relations programme at University of Westminster. In our ‘Planning and Managing Campaigns’ module we were challenged to develop a PR campaign from a brief that contained a specific problem and aim. My group ‘worked’ for the Forestry Commission England, which was trying to bring more young people to their 1,500 forests. Along with the campaign, we created a video that tied it all together. The video was created using Adobe Premiere Pro CS6.
Working at WYEP gave me the chance to expand on my PR skill set by allowing me to edit and produce videos for the youth media initiatives in the Education and Community Engagement Department. Hereis a promotional video created for Re(imagiNATION), a high school music competition put together by Re(imagine) Media.
