    Graphic Designer
    2010 - 2013

    I have worked in the online retail industry for last 3 years, I have gained excellent design experience
    working with Ireland’s leading gift company GiftsDirect.com and Siopa.com; a new venture focused Irish products for Irish diaspora around the world. This role involved various aspects including digital design for weekly email marketing campaigns, creative banners for both brands, as well as any affiliate partners. It also involved print
    design such as seasonal brochures and leaflets, daily ‘Reader Offers’ adverts in national Irish newspapers, and any printed items needed for
    the office or business events. During the busiest season Christmas I also got stuck in with any customer queries and any other duties while the pressure was on.

    During my time with GiftsDirect.com and Siopa.com, I worked with the sales and marketing team and was responsible for social media calendars and content, building campaigns for brand promotion through social media, interacting with fans and followers, and reporting on insights from all channels.

    I have progressed over the 3 years from a junior designer, to taking over the main design position while my senior was on maternity leave, the six months prior to my travels throughout South America. During that time I had been managing all digital and printed design and marketing material, social media, training junior staff, as well as working with many departments throughout the company, testing content pages and monitoring all related aspects of the live sites and competitors.

About Lynda

Born and bred in Ireland, I've lived in Melbourne for four years and love it.
I've gained fantastic experience here as lead digital designer for 2 major Australian fashion brands, as well as jumping onto several other apparel brands when help was needed. I'm a highly motivated, curious, energetic person with a passion for design and people.
I love collaborating and bouncing ideas with the team but also work well autonomously to get the job done. I like to keep my design simple, clever and striking. I have recently completed Industry User Experience course and my goal is continue to learn to use that knowledge to grow as a designer.
