Hi I'm Sam Ludlow and welcome to my little slice of the internet, my interest for Graphic Design began when I first attended college back in the 1990’s when one of the work units I received on the course covered the basics of Graphics. It was then that I knew it was something I was passionate about and wanted to do it as a career. Due personal circumstances I worked full-time as an administrator throughout the years, but my love for Graphic Design always stayed in my life because of always designing and creating things.
I left my administrative career behind to start a new adventure and in my late 30's after being mum to 2 daughters as well as working full-time I decided to go back to studying and became a mature student, in 2017 I studied Access Art and Design for a year gaining an HE Diploma and continued on for 3 years studying an BA (Hons) Graphic Design Degree at South Essex College, University of the Arts London.
While studying my Degree briefs we were set and a number of different topics were covered such as Corporate ID | Digital Design Solutions | Creative Image Making | Etching | Graphic Design in Three Dimensional Contexts | illustration in Three Dimensional Context | Lino | Mono Print | Narrative illustration | Print | Promotion | Screen Printing | Typography | Visual Commutations | Visual and Cultural Contexts.
My Art and Design course had several different subjects that were covered in Cultural Studies - Modern and Contemporary studies in Art & Design | Exhibition and Professional Practice | Graphic Design Specialism | Figure Studies | Mixed Media | Photography | Printmaking | Research/Creative Development and Visual Studies 2D.
In July 2020 I completed my Degree and graduated in November 2021 with an Upper Second Class (2:1) with Honours, going to university and being a mature student has taught me so much along the way such as producing work and projects.
I have a good understanding of various computer systems such as windows 10 and can use different applications in these such as word/excel/PowerPoint and outlook. I have knowledge of Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign also with a PC and Mac.I am hardworking, honest, reliable, work well on my own as well as part of a team. I’m always eager to learn new things and develop new skills given the right opportunity in a job that I can reach my full potential and achieve so much in a company as well as for myself.
