Editorial, Packaging, Advertising, Branding

I appreciate fearless design and I am not afraid to explore a client’s idea, helping to take that to the next level. My focus goes far beyond a design that looks great, my purpose is also to create a piece of work with meaning, no matter what the brief.

As a designer, I stand for possibilities, I stand for good communication, and for giving voice to a client's story, brand and idea. The result: intelligent, effective design that makes a lasting impression.

What inspired you to become a graphic designer?
The fact that every day at work will be different, with each new brief throwing up a new creative challenge.

Who are your role models?
My parents, because they show me every day that nothing bad comes from working hard and they taught me that everything I propose to do I need to do with passion and dedication. Having this in mind helped me to get this far.

What do you get up to outside of TAFE?
I am a naturally curious designer, I like to surround myself with inspiring things every day. There are always new trends, new movies, new technologies, new theories, new places, new sources of inspiration – and I love to explore them on my free time.

What are most proud of accomplishing during your time at TAFE?
Every year, the graphic design graduates from North Metropolitan TAFE have to pitch an idea for the design of the catalog that will show the best works done by the students during the course.

Having to design different spreads that meet the needs of students to expose their work both horizontally and vertically became a lovely challenge. In the end I came up with a dynamic design which I had the pleasure of being the one chosen for the 2018 catalog.
