My Profile

I have always had a strong creative flair from a young age and after achieving An A grade for A' level art I decided to developed my studies at art school.

C.Fairhurst -08/08/78.

My studies continued to degree level at a prestigious Footwear Design School in London. Cordwainers college, now part of the London College of Fashion:
Where I graduated with a Ba in design, production, marketing.

Throughout my studies I have always been interested in and worked within the Marketing and promotional
industries I have found that my creative flair has been a strength from creating displays to designing Logo`s.
I am intelligent designer and can work to a brief and have a good insight into working with companies developing on a already established brand/ image. I created the corporate image from Scratch for the company on the below. I became creative director for a broadcasting company and supported all design and marketing decisions and this included set design, exhibition stand design, logo design and profile. I was also lucky to design and build TV sets for ARY digital a client of interplan.
