July 2005 – August 2005:
Working freelance for ‘Burning 2 learn’ I designed and produced their website.
The website was produced using Flash, HTML and PHP, and was designed so that the content could easily
be updated by the company personnel, with minimal computer skills, thus saving any additional costs.
The work was an excellent opportunity to gain practical experience of the skills that I had been introduced to
Since the completion of the website I have undertaken more work for the company, such as representing
‘Burning 2 Learn’ as a creative technical assistant at ‘Mac-expo’, a role which involved promoting the website,
and teaching local school children desktop-publishing skills. I have also been commissioned to develop an e-
learning game to be distributed to local schools.

My involvement throughout the design process from start to finish was an extremely valuable experience,
giving me an insight into the importance of working within a close knit team, working to strict deadlines and a
high level of professionalism.

During my later years at school I worked as a sales assistant, with full till responsibilities, in a local high street
