Claire Daniel is a facilitator on the Creative Arts and Media courses. Before working at Tresham, Claire worked as a freelance graphic designer for a variety of clients across the publishing, catering and festival industries. This was a career that she found to be, “both hard-work and rewarding, giving me the opportunity to work on a diverse range of projects.”
Claire undertook an apprenticeship in the print trade working on the very first Apple Mac’s just as the print trade started to go digital. “My apprenticeship gave me experience with traditional, commercial print techniques as well as enabling me to implement new technology as it evolved. I am proud to say I have never been a PC user!” Years later, Claire became a studio manager for a large print and publishing company before moving out of production and into design, working as a graphic designer for an array of extreme sports and equestrian magazines.
Her most satisfying projects include working as Feature Designer for ‘Climb Magazine’ and creating a design for Berol Pens’ promotional stand at the Education Show; this was another one of Claire’s freelance projects.
When asked what she enjoys most about teaching, Claire says, “I like turning PC users into Mac users!”
