I am currently employed as a Graphic Designer and Social Media Executive for a company named the Social Editor. My role consists of designing various creative advertising content for media; including print for example brochures, leaflets, posters, signage and social media adverts, while constantly maintaining strict brand guidelines and ensuring connections to target audiences.
My previous experience includes employment as a Graphic Designer for Tailor&Wolf, an Interior Architecture firm based in Trim, Co. Meath. My role there consisted of designing logos/signage and developing a suite of brand packages/ identities for customers and potential clients. In addition to this, all the social media platforms were managed by myself with sole responsibility for driving traffic to our website and lead generation. I also produced numerous marketing and promotional material used for client facing and sales leads.
I am innovative, naturally creative and results-driven. I have extensive transferable knowledge from my work experience to date which includes; critical thinking, organisational skills, presentation skills, concept formation, self discipline and time management.
I work well under pressure, can manage multiple projects simultaneously and would consider myself a cross-functional team player.
In my spare time, I have established a small online business called “The Happy Cabbage Illustrations” and have created a strong online presence to help grow, promote and encourage a wide range of new and diverse clientele. I understand the importance of marketing strategies and targets, and I am experienced in developing a creative approach to these.
