Scottish creation with Spanish soul.
Bright, outgoing, a naturally creative and passionate individual. Artist in Residence at Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh 2017-2018. Artist in residence at Arteles in Finland 2018. MA in Illustration at Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh 2016-2017. I hold a Bachelor Degree (Hons) in Advertising and Public Relation with specialisation in Marketing. It includes qualifications in Digital Media Art, and Visual Communication, an HND in Audiovisuals and Entertainment and a Certificate in Photography.
Working as a Designer for the past five years has taught me that each project is unique and different. We must always create the best relationship with the client by fully understanding the brief and knowing how to transform it creatively into a design. It excites me to use my skills in design and marketing, and I enjoy every project I work on. I have worked both in teams and as a freelance, so I am adaptable to any terrain and any kind of project, all of which enthuse me.
I have a committed work ethic and excellent planning abilities, which allows me to manage time efficiently when carrying out projects. I take a positive and enthusiastic approach in all my work, and it always makes me proud when my visions and designs come to fruition. There is nothing better than loving what you do, as I do, and seeing your goals come to completion.
Within the world of advertising and media, I have taught web design, illustration, video editing, social media and giving effective presentations; I have taught students in chartered schools and at esteemed companies such as Orona, CNC, the U.S.A Embassy and for FC Real Madrid, alongside such leading figures as Emilio Butragueño.
Passionate about social media and photography, a social media by vocation, I founded, organised and managed the community of Instagramers in Madrid and Edinburgh. Fascinated by video editing, I administer Instagramers Tube, the Igers video information channel. www.instagramers.com
