During a career talk with a tutor at college, the Design for Film and TV course at NTU was suggested to me. It wasn’t until I walked into their design studio at an open day that I not only realised what I wanted to do, but I also found a place that I felt my creativity belonged.
Life from then seems a bit of a whirlwind; I have learnt so much and loved every minute. From my first television job at Eastenders as the Art Department Archivist to my current role as Graphic Designer on Midsomer Murders, I have met a myriad of wonderful people who have been incredibly keen to share their knowledge and so encouraging of the development of my skills and designs.
It was on my second job, The Capture, that I discovered my love for graphics. From the moment I read a script and begin to imagine the variety of things I will get to design, to researching existing graphics and how they are made, to learning new skills that allow me to produce convincing designs and finally, seeing the finished product set, I feel an ever-expanding enthusiasm to push myself, my work and my creativity that I didn’t think was possible from a job.
I love what I do, not just because of the people I work with and the variety it brings to each day, but also because it allows me to constantly develop my skills and challenge myself.
I hope the future brings more work with encouraging teams of creatives who help nurture my creativity and expand my world.
