BA (Hons) Textiles grauates Sharayah Engelbrecht & Sophia Chan tell us what they have been up to since graduating.
Since graduating in 2014 Sharayah has been working as a Freelance Designer at a local lifestyle fashion company local to Bournemouth, Brakeburn in Poole.
“I am working full time as a freelancer designer at Brakeburn in Poole.Initially I was in charge of editing products for the catalogue, which involved colour matching, adding prints and editing the accessories and clothing range.”“Working with the design team has given me the chance to continually improve my digital skills on Illustrator and Photoshop. I am getting a real insight into how to design commercially with colours and prints. I am also gaining valuable experience in various administrative roles.”
“Currently I am working for a lifestyle fashion company as print & graphics designer. With this, I create all in house prints for garments and accessories as well as graphics for mens tees and company branding. I also get to put together the seasonal catalogues for each collection and even attend the photo shoots as co-photographer.”“I am keen on carrying on with my own designing, so I always seek inspiration outside of work too to develop my own ideas.”
