Designer, Photographer & Content Creator
Hi I’m Geena! I am a designer, photographer and content creator who is very familiar with the Adobe Creative Suite. I have a background in creating content in marketing and did a placement year supporting a comms team which also involved elements of events management. I really enjoy all things content so I am looking for roles that allow me to use the the skills that I have professionally whether it be designing, events planning or creating video and photo content. I have been using Photoshop and Premiere Pro for 8 years and am also a confident user of InDesign, Illustrator, Lightroom and After Effects. I have a particular interest in book design, social media content creation, video editing and events.
The goal was to design an A2 poster for Thelma and Louise that interests people from a distance and my approach was to design an illustrated poster of Thelma and Louise driving in the car with key symbols from the film present in the poster. Some of the key challenges I faced and learned from during this project were designing for A2, it was a much bigger scale than I’d previously designed for, making effective use of the space without cramping the text together too much or distracting from the imagery and testing the colours in print to make sure they were right before sending it to the printer for the final print.
The goal was to produce a proposal for an independent magazine, about an aspect of visual culture. I chose to design a music magazine focusing on women in the music industry, aimed at people who are interested in supporting and uplifting women in the music industry, and discovering new music. The main things I learned from this project was breaking away from the stricter rules learnt from previous editorial book design to create pages that feel like a magazine by making bolder design decisions with typography and the different steps in the hierarchy, and with using space.
The goal with this project was to design the cover for Amber Undercover by Em Norry, aimed at 5-7 year olds. The location based approach to this cover was informed by the challenges with not including spy elements that could be considered too mature for a children’s book, this was also a very popular convention of young children’s adventure book series.
