A little bit about me...
Hi, I’m Emma!
In July 2021, I graduated from the University of Portsmouth with First Class Honours in Graphic Design. I am currently working as a Junior Digital Designer at Brighton-based digital agency, We Are Tilt.
I am an enthusiastic designer, motivated by a desire to create innovative ideas and designs which solve real-world problems and have a meaningful impact on users. I have a high attention to detail and am never afraid to step out of the box when it comes to the possibilities of a project. I hope that as my career progresses, this is something I can continue to champion and develop further. I love learning new things and enjoy challenging myself to improve my work, design ability, and soft skills.
During my time at university, I was awarded Overall Creative Champion at the South West Design and Digital Student Awards and awarded a fellowship to the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) as a winner of their student design awards. In July 2021, I was recognised by D&AD winning a D&AD New Blood Pencil for my project 'Spotify Moments’, and a D&AD Portfolio Pick. I also received the University of Portsmouth Visual Culture Award from the School of Art, Design, and Performance for my dissertation ‘Corporate Paedophillia: the over-sexualisation of young girls in advertising’. I am also an Adobe Certified Associate in Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop.
In my free time I enjoy travelling and exploring new places, going for walks, reading, baking and binge watching the latest Netflix show!
Thank you for taking the time to view my portfolio. Please contact me with any questions or enquiries!
