Current job title and company/profession
Interior Design Associate at Phaus.
Phaus are designers for brands specialising in creating strong and unique brand environments for the retail environment. 

My current employers, Phaus, attended the end of year degree show. I later learnt that they were impressed by my work and hired me not long after. The skills I learnt whilst studying the course at Salford have been invaluable in my working life. Working at a small practice has certainly been a baptism of fire, you are involved in every aspect of the construction process straight away. The most exciting part of the job is seeing your ideas become reality.

Alongside this I am also studying part-time for an MSc Hons BIM and Integrated Design – a course which addresses the emerging needs of new skills for architects, designers and project managers, enabling them to deliver integrated design and solutions with the support of advanced technologies, such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Lean. I have worked for some impressive brands along the way, such as Barbour and All Saints, and am currently applying theories from my Master's degree into practice, working with our construction partners.
