Communication: I am confident to visually communicate my ideas through sketching, Photoshop and model making as shown in my portfolio and online work: (http://www.coroflot.com/ConnorTemple)
I understand the importance of working with the client throughout the design process, producing research driven ideas that are validated by the client, which is achieved through two way communication. I am accustomed to research projects using a range of different sources in order to provide solutions into materials, manufacture methods and deliver the product cost effectively. This is something that I do on a regular basis for each of my design project.
Sociability: I believe my social skills have been Improved greatly through working in a restaurant called Bluebeckers, Hampton Court. Here I have learnt how to work as a team member and deal with situations with people I have never met. I believe this has given me the confidence to be more outgoing, always ensure I have an approachable manner, showing friendliness, understanding and politeness.
