identity + branding

Personal Profile
A self-motivated and passionate designer graduated from Middlesex University with a MA in Visual Communication Design. My two-months internship in Landor Associates and my past years of work in The Brand Union has taught me the importance of teamwork and vision. The challenges have helped me to develop my skills in adaptating to ever-changing situations and work effectively within a team whilst striving for excellence.

I am currently based in London working as a branding & digital designer at WHAM, hoping to gain more experience and expand my portfolio to become more versatile under this inspiring and multi-cultural environment.
