I have written various features for Creative Bloq, as well as pieces for ImagineFX and 3D World. I interview various artists and designers and come up with interesting topics.
I commission content for net magazine, 3D World, ImagineFX and Creative Bloq. I research and find the best artists and touch base with them, setting out guidelines and deadlines, as well as chasing them up.
As part of my current role, I commission and sub content for ImagineFX magazine. I receive submissions from all around the world, and for many of our contributors, English is a second language, meaning a substantial amount of subbing can be needed.
I am active on all forms of social media, and use these as an invaluable tool to connect with my audiences. I can promote using Twitter and Facebook effectively, and use these mediums to grab the latest stories and trends, as well as build features around followers opinions and discussions.
Design – Graphic and illustration
I have illustration and 3D design skills. Am well rehearsed with Photoshop and InDesign and have designed blog headers, charity event posters and small business menus on various occassions. I have also designed and made jewellery, 3D make-up and dresses/fashion.
I have many years retail experience, including hard sell and hitting targets
I run various blogs and have studied what works online, as well as put this into practise for my personal projects and my day job.

Merchandising and Window Displaying
I have worked as a window displayer throughout my retail career (and in voluntary work), whenever I’ve had the chance. Currently I excel at the merchandising in my part-time job at Crystals, Newport. I absolutely love building up a theme and using innovative ways to grab customers attention and inspire them to buy.
Communication/ Building contacts in the community
For our successful mini-mag as part of my Masters degree (Needles & Pins – an alternative women’s tattoo mag) I was responsible for setting up majority of the contacts my team to interviewed.
I have an extensive list of contacts from my work on ImagineFX and 3D World – from comic artists and illustrators and industry PR’s. I take pride in really getting to know my community and excel at creating lasting relationships with them, built upon trust and understanding
