A Fashion Branding and Communication student, aspiring to the creative direction and/or visual merchandising sectors.
Creativity and innovation is displayed through various project outcomes. Exploration with a range of creative mediums, such as fashion photography and digital design, allowed creative self-expression and vision. There was considerable attention to areas, or segments, of the projects, such as application of branding, brand aesthetic, layouts, graphic fundamentals and typography, in order to produce visually pleasing outcomes.
A personal strong asset is creativity and the ability to produce strong visual concepts, possessing good knowledge and practice of creative softwares, including Photoshop and InDesign.
