My interest for all things design originates from photography. Having received my first camera for my 20th birthday, I began to collect pictures from locations all over Northern Ireland and beyond, into Europe. I'm very thankful to my family for this, as they sparked my passion by giving me a camera. Thanks Dad!
Below are several experiences from opportunities I have had in the past, where I have been blessed to work with talented photographers,and underwent a night-time course at the Bangor SERC for leisure photography.
Having learned Photoshop and Indesign alongside creating material, I have developed an eye for what is current, innovative and I'm constantly trying to see what is coming next for design. I'm inspired by the modernism movement from the 1960s, as well as the neo-modernism which we see today in society.
I have created numerous banners through community projects, posters and also social media material for the youth organisation and church I worked with, developing branding for Summer Teams and even had the privledge of designing clothing for over 700 young people.

During my Year out interning, I found myself working with numerous skilled professionals (such as Chris Semple Photography and Head and Heart Films) and in doing so, I found my interests expand into videography, and actually telling a story through film. My eyes were opened to this powerful tool which we neglect daily, and I have found a passion to document things which are happening on our streets and in our land and I'm looking to expand on this experience.
This section of design is the newest to me, as I had never looked at code before beginning Ulster University this year. However, I am fascinated by this way of developing a product to host the clients business or organisation and have been going through a module in University which is comprised of lectures for inspiration, and workshops for hands-on experience on how to code. I have recently began to find my feet on this module, and have become relatively proficient in HTML and CSS.
