Long Bio

Hello, my name is Emily Ussher. I am a first year Interaction design student at Ulster university Belfast. I am originally from Venezuela; I found my love of art when I moved to Northern Ireland at 13 as it gave me a communication tool that I did not have at the time. I love to travel and create art. My multi-cultural upbringing has offered me a different perspective and point of view – something that is always evident in my designs.

Short Bio

“Just another Venezuelan/Irish self-appointed explorer, studying Interaction Design and doing what she loves”

My mission statement:

“To create and showcase unique, high quality designs in a professional manner to help other people achieve their goals and promote my skills” 

Business card

I really liked the idea of putting a cute illustration in the front – I should maybe create an illustration of myself to use as part of my brand?

I like the idea of using different colours for the same design of business card – it gives a fun and quirky feel while remaining professional.

Here are some of my initial sketchbook ideas:

I then changed my colour scheme and general layout.

This is my business card design, I created two options for my information section, a minimal one and a colour one, I think I could use both depending on who the client/employer is and what they prefer.

Here is my current (boring) cv —-> Emily Ussher cv.

Bellow are some of the CVs I found that inspired me the most – I really like the illustrative style of each one of these, I would love to incorporate this style into my own CV.
