More about me

Location

I was born in St. George's Hospital and have lived in the town of Tooting my whole life. After primary school, I had to commute via the London Transport buses to get to new places of education or workplace in such places as Wimbledon, Kingston and Epsom. Luckily it wasn't too hard to travel, however, it was costly for me and my parents.


Education

Wimbledon College Wimbledon College (my secondary school) - where I did well in my GCSE’s overall, including a GCSE in Design & Technology: Graphic Design. From there on I knew what my goals were, I knew I had a passion for designing and it was time to dream big and pursue it.

Kingston College Applying for many colleges, I was accepted and chose to attend the next two years at Kingston College studying a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Graphic Design. During my time there I learnt so much about the real craft of design, making a variety of end products that simply fulfilled all the passions I had for Graphic Design, it felt good to be doing something that I really and truly cared about.

UCA I opted for the closer University for personal reasons, University for the Creative Arts in Epsom. Now, the course I went for was pretty bold of me I believe. Given that all design knowledge and experience I had wasn’t very interactive and technical so to speak. I was all about the poster designs, the branding, etc... Whereas, on this course you are pushed to explore and capture interactivity in a heavily technical and engaging end product.

What I do take away from this course is the technical ability I gained. Here I learned how to code fully functional websites with HTML+CSS, make good quality short films, how to film a stop-motion and animate. Make 3D models and make them part of a 3D environment. One attribute I progressed in was my ability to give presentations, whether it was a short and sweet pecha kucha or lengthier bit of babble, I was able to develop a good level of confidence and tone to really get my concepts across.

L.J.O All Aspects

I originally got this job as a builder, while we were clearing out an attic for it to be renevated I had a conversation with the boss. I explained to him what my goals were for my career as a designer and later on that evening after work, he called me and explained to me he would want me to design him a few things. This included a new logo and a huge 2m x 1m banner that would be clamped to the scaffolding of the construction.
