My three main strengths are working well as part as a team being a good team player, being organised and having the ability to plan ahead and having excellent research skills. I want to start my career in Fashion buying, marketing and advertising, therefore these skills will help me significantly in that career. An example of were I have had to work as part as a team was during a live project for Seen Magazine, we had to design and make a extreme garment from magazine pages in two days. My role at the start was to try and come up with different ways of manipulating the paper into different shapes and forms that we could use as a starting point to make the dress. I decided that making various sizes of paper fans would work well in order to create a extreme dress. As a team we all starting making various fans, then we all worked together to esabele the dress. I provided good listen skills for anyone in the team and voiced my own opinions effectively. Each person in the team had a significant role, therefore are planning and organizational skills allowed us to finish the dress on time and win the competition.
I am experienced in using the adobe packages, such as Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator. Unfortunately I feel that my layout and typography skills could do with improving. This would then help me in the future if I went into a career in advertising. I have done some work experience with Kirsty Doyle, were I did allot of graphic design, which involved allot of layout ideas and typography. I designed allot of newsletters and magazine pages, use of typography, campaigns and general advertising. Each week I found myself getting better at layout and understanding typography more; Kirsty herself could see an improvement in my work. Therefore I will carry on doing my work experience and then I will hopefully I will carry on getting better and better at what I feel is my weakness.
I am a very friendly and...
