Shift: Anti-Anxiety App / Duolingo Connect / Origins: AR App [Read more]
Shift is a product aimed to help male and female adults, predominantly aged between 18-65, who suffer from anxiety and/or panic attacks. The product is an Apple application targeted towards both iPhone and iWatch users who are looking for a way to help themselves and prevent or minimise future attacks.
Shift - iPhone Application
The aim of this product is to help the user recognise their anxiety and panic attack triggers, to teach them ways to control attacks, provide them with tools to help them prevent them and with access to necessary support. Shift puts the power in the hands of the individual, with an application that can be used anywhere, at any time.
Shift - Sensory Bands
Users can purchase ‘scratch and sniff’ watch bands available in various colours and textures. They are able to apply their choice of essential oil to their band. The band aims to stimulate tactile and olfactory senses as another form of distraction to help calm the user.
Duolingo Connect Campaign Video
Duolingo Connect uses virtual assistant technology and celebrity podcasts to enhance the experience of language learning. Linking to virtual assistants provides users with a hands-free virtual teacher that enables language learning whilst undertaking other activities, so learning requires no extra time. It allows individuals to practice their communication and pronunciation skills in a safe, non-judgemental environment. Celebrity podcasts support daily language lessons, whilst immersing the listener in a variety of cultures around the world.

A multidisciplinary graphic designer with a passion for idea generation and problem solving.
My final year projects have focused on providing solutions for universal issues and communicating them through a variety of outcomes. These projects have given me the opportunity to work with software, such as Adobe XD, Adobe After Effects and Procreate, enabling me to gain experience with current technological advances and design trends before graduating.
My aim has been to make my designs and ideas captivating, whilst keeping them easy for target audiences to understand and enhancing their overall user experience. My project ideas have been inspired by current social issues and the multicultural and bi-lingual society I come from. My career aim is to work as part of a design team, generating and developing innovative ideas as I work my way towards becoming a Creative Strategist.

'21 Diploma in Professional Studies
June 2019 - July 2020
I started off my placement as a Graphic Design Intern and Videography Assistant with Wright Tech Media in Gibraltar. I began shadowing and working closely with the Graphic Designer which enabled me to get a good understanding of the company and its clients, in addition to building my design knowledge and experience. At the six month point, the Graphic Designer resigned and I was asked if I would be willing to step into the role for the remainder of my placement year. As a result, I found myself working as the company’s only graphic designer, giving me the chance to work directly with major clients such as the Government of Gibraltar.
This extraordinary opportunity has enabled me to gain experience in print and digital graphic design, video and drone filming, photography, time-lapse recording and advertising as well as increasing my business understanding and my personal network with clients. The experience pushed my creative boundaries and gave me a platform to bring my ideas to the table and contribute to the success of the company.
