ACHIEVEMENTS

Whilst working at the The Royal Museums Greenwich, YMCA and Kings Recruitment Agency I clearly demonstrated my ability to work to strict deadlines and within budget, whilst tactically solving problems that arise on design and web projects.

I was also realised as a flexible and adaptable individual with clear and concise communication skills.

During my employment at Royal Museums Greenwich in the Design Department, I was able to learn and proficiently use the SketchUp 3D software effectively and to the required standard and with little training. I then used the product and demonstrated clear ability to produce high quality and detailed work. I was also recognised within these environments as a strong team player who is able to present viable output using prescribed and industry standard methodologies.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Royal Museums GreenwichDigital Designer, 3D Modeler
October 2017 – February 2018

Working as part of an internship placement at the Royal Museums Greenwich, I was assigned to numerous projects. The first project was to draw up plans for an unused room within the museum to be remodeled into a storage area for the IT and Design department with shelving and storage utilities. It was then my job to translate the measurements of the room into a 3D model, with shelving and storage built into the model. This was then sent to the contractors to assess the development. The next project given to me was to design a gate-fold leaflet advertising the museums’ library events. I had to work to strict design guidelines given to me by the marketing team and work closely with the project leader and printing company who would print the leaflets. These would then be distributed around the museum for public use. On the third project, I was asked to plan and write a document for a possible piece of software that the design department was hoping to develop for an interactive. The project’s brief is a video game where the user has to construct a moon base for human colonisation, based on the realms of realism. I had to think of game mechanics, how the user interface should look, types of objectives for the user to complete and how the user will interact with the virtual environments.

September 2012 – February 2015

Worked with a professional design studio at the Royal Museums Greenwich as part of a
work experience placement. From September 2012 to March 2013 I worked on various small projects using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign to produce and print screen ready material.
From April 2014 to October 2014 I was approached by the Astronomy department within
the Museum to develop a series of images for production into 3D models. These were a
lunar rover and a Mars lander for the schools’ workshop programme. They were produced using SketchUp and later printed on Foamex to produce a 3D puzzle. Currently, I am learning VectorWorks and working with the design team within the Exhibitions department at the Museum on an upcoming exhibition.
