Arthur - University of Leeds

Hi! I’m Arthur, I’m a final year Product Design student studying at the university of Leeds.

I’ve just returned from a 15-month industry placement at Solid Solutions working as an Applications Engineer, and I’m looking to gain further experience.

I am technical focused creative, with a keen sense for time management and organisation. My passion is inclusive, human-centred and providing innovative solutions to novel problems. I pride myself on being quick-learning, and I love tackling new challenges.



I am a Certified SOLIDWORKS Expert (CSWE), having worked a 15-month placement both providing technical support to and teaching industry users of the software. I am able to provide support with modelling queries and technical issues, as well as helping you translate 2D sketches to 3D CAD models. (Please note: Due to how licensing for SOLIDWORKS operates any work would have to be done on a license owned by your company)


I have 3 years of university and industry experience rendering 3D CAD models in KeyShot. I can fully render models with texture, lighting and background scenery to highlight your products and create marketing material.

Adobe Creative Suite

I have experience using InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator throughout University and personal projects. I have proficiency in creating logos, graphics and infographics in Illustrator, editing images in Photoshop and creating layouts for newsletter, portfolios and magazines in InDesign. Using these skills, I can create custom assets and consistent final products for your company.

Microsoft Suite

I have completed beginner and intermediate courses in Excel from Macquarie University, and can assist with both the creation of documents and data. I am also proficient in Word, PowerPoint and their google counterparts, being able to create professional documents within both.

Customer Service

I have worked multiple customer-facing jobs, including a year working on a support desk assisting with SOLIDWORKS technical issues. This has given me adept problem solving and customer interaction skills, helping me to ensure the customer always leaves happy.

Proofreading and Editing

I have a keen eye for spelling, grammar, formatting and accuracy, having assisted with the writing of many CVs, cover letters and more. I’d be more than happy to read through drafts to provide feedback and changes.
