Lewis Allum

Graphic Communication & Illustration

I am an enthusiastic Graphic Designer and as my portfolio shows, I have a passion for branding, packaging, promotional materials, editorial design, UI & UX design, iconography and photography.

I am confident in a range of design software and architecture, being competent in both the Mac and Windows environments. I love the challenge of any brief, which allows me to exercise creative thinking to create an original angle or unexpected interpretation. I have held the position of Assistant Art Director of Label Magazine, Loughborough University’s student magazine, for two years. Through that and several internships at a luxury mobile phone company, Vertu, I have experienced the high-pressure environments of working to deadlines and deliverables. I carry out extensive research to ensure my skills stay current and I can adapt to all the required working practices within the eclectic world of Graphic Design.
