I studied Computer Science at Oxford Brookes University and later transferred courses to Multimedia Design. Part of the course involved taking a year’s industrial placement and I was fortunate enough to be selected as one of two students hired by the department to work as in-house designers and developers for the University.
I created interactive, online and multimedia marketing material, producing CD-ROM prospectuses and maintaining the Technology department’s website. Responsibilities included overseeing and managing projects, meeting and coordinating with department heads to produce content and information for University prospectus guides. Liaising with publishers and printers to ensure the delivered product was to specification. Other projects included creating promotional posters for departments, organising an archival DVD for a theatrical company, which included documents, photos, audio and video.
I used a wide range of software including Final Cut and After Effects for video work, Dreamweaver and Flash for web based work and Director for interactive CD-ROMs and presentation.
