During·​the·​past·​three·​years·​as·​a·​student·​at·​Reading·​University,·​I·​developed·​a·​passion·​for·​UX·​and·​packaging·​design.·​I·​spent·​a·​great·​amount·​of·​time·​learning·​new·​skills·​that·​were·​not·​directly·​related·​to·​graphic·​design·​but·​that·​will·​come·​in·​handy·​and·​give·​me·​the·​chance·​to·​be·​more·​independent·​When·​developing·​new·​projects.·​Among·​these,·​I·​learned·​how·​to·​use·​3D·​software·​such·​as·​Blender.·​This·​allowed·​me·​to·​create·​both·​mockups·​or·​models·​to·​import·​into·​Photoshop.·​Html·​was·​another·​area·​that·​I·​explored·​individually·​and·​it·​helped·​me·​incredibly,·​especially·​the·​past·​year·​as·​we·​worked·​on·​several·​UX·​projects.·​My·​immediate·​goals·​are·​to·​continue·​my·​studies·​for·​the·​next·​one·​or·​two·​years.

I·​am·​particularly·​interested·​in·​branding,·​how·​it’s·​valuable·​to·​a·​business·​in·​becoming·​successful·​and·​that·​when·​done·​correctly,·​a·​company’s·​brand·​and·​visual·​identity·​can·​influence·​consumers·​to·​purchase·​the·​product·​they·​offer.·​Throughout·​my·​time·​studying·​at·​the·​University·​of·​Reading,·​my·​interest·​in·​typography·​and·​packaging·​design·​has·​developed·​a·​lot,·​specifically,·​the·​importance·​of·​sustainable·​packaging·​in·​today’s·​environment·​and·​how·​greener·​alternatives·​can·​help·​positively·​impact·​the·​future.
