Freelance Graphic Designer; 2012–Present
After finishing my Graphic Design degree I decided that the best way to use my new found talents and skills was to work on a freelance basis doing various projects as they became available. This allows me to try new types of graphic design which for me is wonderful because I love challenges and projects that push my creative skills. (Graphic Design Projects)
