Summary

My name is Marley Howe. I am 19 year old, highly motivated and hardworking individual, who has recently completed a Certificate of Secondary Education in South Australia and more recently a Certificate IV in Design with high levels, achieving excellent grades in many subjects such as collaborating in a design process, interpret and respond to a design brief and capturing photographic images. Seeking a part time/casual position in the retail or hospitality industry to build upon skills and help broaden interests. My main eventual career goal is to become a fully-qualified and experienced  graphic designer or visual communication designer but I am currently looking to help broaden this by finding another profession in another area such as a retail assistant. I have a longer-term aspiration of moving into freelance graphic design business owner/operator but if that shall fall I am needing some backup for it.
