Hello, I’m Amber and I have been passionate about graphic design for several years. Prior to enrolling on this course, I completed a diploma in art and design, which has given me a broad range of design experience. I value this time as it allowed me to experiment within a variety of art disciplines, ranging from jewellery design to photography. I found myself naturally gravitating towards graphic design and this prompted me to pursue a degree in this subject. Since starting this course, I have strengthened my existing skills in Photoshop and Illustrator, which has allowed me to enhance my projects. In addition, I have had the opportunity to learn new software including InDesign and After Effects, and I now find myself using these in many of my projects. While I have experience in a range of design types including motion graphics, branding and UX, I have not yet settled on a particular area to specialise in. Despite this, I have discovered that I enjoy packaging design and I can see myself potentially working in this field.
