About

My dream job is to work as a graphic designer in a proactive, forward thinking organisation that values innovation, achievement and a constructive workplace culture that promotes growth, creativity and success. I excel in the idea of conceptualising artwork, perfecting and learning something new everyday and I don’t stop thinking about the task ahead until I know it is done the right way, and that I have captured the essence of the brief and client's needs. Having worked in a design studio, it has taught me the importance of good time management over multiple ongoing projects to ensure deadlines are met, the brief is fulfilled and a great client rapport is built. I have also learned the importance of teamwork and building sustainable relationships leads to a more productive team. I that believe that hard work pays off. I am an extremely focused individual hungry for the next fresh and challenging project.
