As an internal communications manager, I've been responsible for developing staff engagement campaigns and I also became the organisation's photographer, videographer, editor, designer and copywriter for all things internal. I use Adobe Creative Suite – including Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Indesign and Dreamweaver – to develop ideas and products. I designed the Department's staff magazine (online and an interactive PDF).
Skills I've picked up along the way
Alongside my skills in Photography and marketing, I've also developed a number of practical creative skills to help me deliver a range of finished products. Previously, I set up my own magazine and produced all copy and designed an interactive PDF.
