    Magnify Creative are a small & dynamic creative web & graphic design agancy. I provided input to the production process of each website as well as creative input into layout & logo design & I helped the company to grow. My roles & responsibilities on a daily basis included:

    • Uploading & creating online graphic content to look professional & on-brand • Working as part of a team to create slick, cuttingedge WooCommerce websites • Selecting & customizing on-brand appropriate WordPress themes for optimal

    functionality • Designing professional business stationary • Researching & working on logo conceptualisation • Listening to clients’ feedback & making informed decisions to steer the creative

    This involved pitching on behalf of some of the biggest music supervision companies in London, to prestigious international advertising agencies. Writing to a detailed brief with tight deadlines was fundamental within this role, whilst ensuring a liberal amount of creative flair was added to each composition.

    In my role as a digital services officer, I've been on a small team responsible for the design, development & implementation of the new Tunbridge Wells Borough Council website (not yet live). As lead front-end designer on the project, I've worked alongside a developer to create a future-proof fully accessible & user-tested design. The early stages of the design process involved creating working prototypes & a UI library in Sketch & Invision. This helped to ensure the consistency of the design & development process.

    The design decisions of the new website we're made utilising tools such as Google Analytics, Treejack & Loop 11 to gain insight & to hypothesise concepts & test them in the field with the end users.

    A big part of the job role consists of digitising services. This has involved designing forms & integrating them into apps which have enabled mobile working for third-party external companies such as Biffa. Ensuring that the forms were user-friendly & tailored to the demographic has been key to these projects.

    F r e e l a n c e W e b D e s i g n e r ( P r e s e n t )

    Designing websites outside of my day job enables me to keep up to date with contemporary user interface & user experience design trends which I'm really passionate about. I attend meet-ups to talk about new advances in design & front-end development to make sure that I’m aware of any changes in the industry. I've worked alongside some great companies & built excellent working relationships with my clients’.
