Over the last three years, I have developed my knowledge and abilities in the field of a multidisciplinary digital media designer. My time studying at Bournemouth University has deepened my interest and given me the opportunity to acquire the skill sets to research, prototype, design, develop, test and present different forms of digital media artefacts through the exchange and consultation of client briefs using many design applications.

Each stage of the design process is highly documented with research demonstrations, demographics, prototypes, wireframes, mind maps and visual storyboards, where such methods can then be presented to the client in a professional manner. Furthermore, I can design digital mediums including websites, web apps and iOS applications through the process of user interface and user experience design and in turn, facilitate the development of a fully functional mobile-responsive website or iOS application.

In addition to my skill set, I am also able to code with my main strength specifically focusing on the front-end of applications including the development of web pages using HTML, CSS, PHP and JavaScript files. My devotion to the industry is reflected as I have self-taught specific frameworks that take advantage of web technologies such as jQuery and Bootstrap; all to help increase the speed process of such mediums. I am also able to design, build and maintain Content Management System (CMS) including WordPress websites allowing such mediums to be more secure and provide a more better security during client hand-over. In the future, I look forward to learning the e-commerce CMS, Shopify to thrive further. Relating this to iOS applications, I have a strong understanding to design and development also, using Swift, the CocoaPods framework and Firebase to build interactive mobile applications.

I also have experience in database design through the basic understanding of relational design including mySQL and Firebase. From this I can code websites, web apps and iOS applications to enable them to communicate with server-side databases, making information exchange possible. I personally believe that appropriate and clear file systems, network and server resources, hardware constraints, and an understanding of data redundancy is crucial for the development of applications. I feel implementing a good visual design is essential and would say this is my strongest area of expertise as I am able to create extensive illustrations and motion graphics; all fundamental aspects which appeal to the user experience.
