I am 22 years old with a passion for magazine design.
I have created two separate magazines, which are about two completely different subjects. First of all I worked as part of a team to create ‘Cook’ which is a magazine about food, for the 25-45 year old market. I worked on design and content for this publication and I am very proud of the results.
I have also created my own magazine called ‘Thrift’ which is a magazine for 18-25 year olds who want to get into the world of frugality but haven’t got the skills to read craft magazine or knitting publication.
I currently work in the fashion department of a large department store; within this I have developed my visual skills. I have gained skills in Visual Merchandising, whilst looking after particular brands including Oasis and Reiss. I also have skillset in talking to different people from all walks of life, which has helped my gain confidence when talking in front of people.
In my spare time I run a fashion blog, where I review products, post outfits of the day and create wish lists. Within this I take my own images, which helps me gain experience in using a DSLR camera on the manual setting. It also helps me learn which angles work best and how to frame the subject.
