Alex

I'm a creative, and I love to show that in every aspect of my life. I love sharing creative ideas and learning new concepts.

Freshly graduated with a Bachelor of Graphic Design at the end of 2019, I'm excited to enter into the design industry after working in childcare for a decade. I'm happiest creating for others, and would love to create for you.

 

Education and Professional Snapshot

Bachelor of Graphic Design

2016 - 2019

Throughout my degree at the University of Canberra, I have been determined and I am proud of my achievements. I have been awarded a Dean's Excellency Award, been a top five finalist for the UC orientation guide design competition, and lead the winning team for the 2019 Healthier Choices Canberra competition. I continued leading that team through The Mill House's GRIST program (Social Enterprise Accelerator Program).
I've learnt a range of programs, mainly the Adobe Suite, while honing my skills throughout the designing process for each brief.

Childcare (Assistant Educator)

2009 - 2020 (mixed work)

Throughout the decade I have spent in the childcare industry, I've conducted myself professionally both autonomously and as part of a team. I liaise frequently with parents, working together for the betterment of their children while fostering the child's ever-curious path to independence. My teaching style holds the Montessori philosophy in high esteem, while encouraging creativity and imagination. I acquired my Childcare Certificate III in 2010, and I especially adore reading books to children.

Bachelor of Arts (Ancient History)

2014 - 2015

Studying Ancient History at Macquarie University for a year, that degree taught me how to research and collate information, but I realised that while history is a vast interest of mine, it is not a passion I wanted to pursue professionally.

High School Certificate

Freshwater Senior Campus, Sydney

2008

 

Quick Learner

Throughout my degree I've used a variety of different programs, needing to learn them fast. Along with the Adobe Suite, I also have experience using 3D software such as Maya.

Attention to Detail

I pay close attention to detail and consider myself a bit of a perfectionist. I teach myself the techniques I need to achieve the design vision that I have.

Team Player

I am friendly and warm, treating others with respect and holding great customer service skills. I work well in a team environment as well as autonomously.
