My name is Kym and I'm from Warrington. In August 2017, I became a graduate from the University of Salford with a first class BA degree in graphic design. Since graduation, I have done a little bit of travelling and I've used my free time to refresh my skills, in Adobe CS, to create design pieces that are relevant to current trends.
I am currently looking for opportunities to work in the graphic design industry. I am a well organized, flexible designer and I am interested in advertising, marketing and digital design. I work well under pressure and can learn things relatively quickly. I love a challenge, especially when it comes to Photoshop.
As a designer, I am more specialised in digital artwork, but | do have the ability to hand draw as well.

I had helped the designers and the art director with preparing the props so that they were ready for filming, even with the constant change of schedule’s and ideas.
2016 - EAR TO THE GROUND
I initially did an 8-week placement where I assisted with client work and I also helped with some internal marketing design by utilising my Adobe CS skills. After my placement, I had gone back several times to help with design work, including a 3-week cover.
