Hi there. Welcome to my portfolio, I’m Carl Jones, a digital media professional, from Shrewsbury. I see you’ve found my portfolio of work I’ve done or been involved in.
A little bit about myself. I am a 21 year old BSC (Hons) Computing Digital Media Student, based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire studying at Wolverhampton University. I have previously studied at Shrewsbury College of Arts and Technology gaining a Level 3 Extended Diploma for IT practioners, and also gaining a HND in Applied Information Technology at the same college while studying through Staffordshire University.
Digital Media Professional
With 3 years of experience in a professional environment working for Yarrington Ltd, I have learnt from the industry the technologies and skills required to develop for local, national and global companies. Whether this be a web banner or image for an advert, content for a website or physical banners and set graphics for events, I’ve had experience. Please visit my portfolio gallery to see and experience some examples!
More about us
During my years in industry I have had several experiences of events, which include but are not limited to:
- Dealing with delegate registration and queries
- Helping with creation of sets, audio and visual
- Helping with the removal and clean up upon finish
- Running of stands and stalls within conferences
Throughout 5 years of secondary school education I was successful in two sales orientated business challenges. The first of these were undertaken aged 11 where with a partner we decided to sell merchandise to support England’s national team in the 2006 World Cup. The second challenge was done aged 13 for our Business Studies course studied.
With two years in the industry there has been plenty of opportunities for me to work on and build websites. From content population and testing on sites such as Hawkstone Park Follies and Shropshire Chamber, taking over site builds from others for sites including Stans Superstore and Hawkstone Park Golf, and the complete redesign and rebuild of Wem Carnival, I have worked for high profile clients both locally and nationally.
Over the last few years I have volunteered for local, independant organisations, and in the community. Locally I have volunteered to help out with the Shrewsbury Town Official Supporters Club and Wem Carnival Committee, taking on vital roles helping with the everyday running of the groups and organisation of events. In the community I have volunteered on numerous occasions to help out at a local sheltered housing estate with fun days including the summer fete.
In the last few years I have raised, as part of a team and individually £738 for national charities including Severn Hospice, Royal Shrewsbury Hospital Children’s Ward and St Lukes Hospice, Cheshire
