Hiya! My name is Ella and I am currently in my third year at the University of Leeds studying product design. I am hardworking, innovative and creative. I'm also a people person and love working with others in a team environment to help produce the perfect end product.
You can view some of my work on my online portfolio:
Adobe Suite: I regularly use photoshop, In Design and Illustrator to create advertisements or visualisations of a product. Therefore, I can help to create posters/banners/logos or advertisements.
Solidworks: I have 3 years of experience with creating 2D designs into 3D on CAD software.
Keyshot: My course has taught me to place a 3D Cad model into real-life background, to add context to the product. This also allows me to add texture and material.
Hence, being able to create a storyboard with real-life users.
Canva: I use Canva to create social media posts for a local charity called Buynowtls6 in Leeds to help them advertise and build their charity.
Design Consultant: I helped No Extra Source through Paperound to analyse their website and increase the usability and aesthetics of their site. I also developed their logo, and with positive feedback now work as their design consultant.
Social Media Content: I manage Chez Joel's (a burger shop) social media account, to produce posts and create competitions to advertise their restaurant and food.
Social Media Content: I volunteer for BuyNowtLS6 to create social media content for their page. This involves using Canva and the Adobe Suite to produce posts and flyers.
Customer Service: I have worked many waitressing e.g. Goodwood/festivals and bar jobs as well as retail work in Asda so I have lots of different experience in dealing with customers in every situation. Therefore, I can ensure you I am polite and happy to deal with any complaints in order to make you or a customer happy wherever possible.
-Bar work: I currently work in various bars at events and weddings, utilising my communication skills, and time management alongside university work.
Design consultancy: I worked for 2 weeks to help with a few projects such as designing a VR headset stand for a client
PALL: Gaining experience in a high tech engineering firm looking at aircraft filtration systems and working with 3D printing.
