Class of 2020
Before IM: I attended Ballyclare Secondary School where I completed A-Levels in Media Studies and English Literature. I also completed an A-Level in Moving Image Arts in Ballyclare High School.
After IM: I am currently working as a Graphic Designer for Twinkl.
I am currently working as a Graphic Designer for Twinkl. Twinkl is an international online educational publishing house, producing teaching and educational materials. I work as part of the Ireland team along with content writers, editors, illustrators and designers to create educational materials for the Irish curriculum. I have created motion graphics for Yoga partnerships and designed educational content packs for a partnership with ISPCC (Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children).
Over the past two years I have also had the opportunity to design and produce a children’s book called ‘Zoe’s Big Day Out’ in collaboration with illustrator ThisLemonLife. This book is provided to children attending Asthma and Allergy appointments in the Northern Health and Social Care Trust with the goal of reducing anxiety by informing children about what to expect on the day.
In 2023 I had the opportunity to deliver the Motion Graphics workshops and lectures for a semester for the interactive Media course. It has been interesting to see the dynamic of delivering a module as I was in the students position back in 2018. Seeing the university experience from the other perspective has been really beneficial for me.
