Graphic Design and Illustration
When & why did you join Get Ahead VA:
December 2021. Joining the Get Ahead team meant that I could concentrate on doing what I love, helping businesses stand out.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA:
Since gaining my first-class degree in Graphic design and communication in 2020, I have been freelancing as a graphic designer and illustrator. Working mainly with small businesses and charities, helping them find their perfect logo, creating large scale murals for them, websites and much more.
Prior to this I worked in retail management for over 15 years, before finally believing in myself enough to follow my creative dreams and go to university.
Career highlight to date:
Creating a mural for the Community shop at the Charles Burrell centre, it’s now a main feature within the building and a talking point for visitors and staff. It was such a pleasure working there and getting to meet everyone. The centre was very encouraging, supportive, and appreciative of me giving my time and skills. Now every time I visit the centre with my daughter, I see my work making people smile.
Plans for the future:
Looking forward to helping more small businesses to shout about themselves and get noticed in this crazy world.
