NICE TO MEET YOU
I'm Luke Carvill, a Coventry-born, Birmingham-based graphic designer.
I tend to find myself working as a generalist, usually on branding, advertising, illustration, artworking, video editing & animation.
Below is a summary of my career so far, looking forward to writing the next entry!
March 2019 - December 2020
TeamSpeak is a software company creating an online voice & chat program with a focus on the gaming & esports industries. I worked in-house as their sole graphic designer in the UK office, located in Derby
As part of the marketing team, I managed strategy, scheduling & design of TeamSpeak's social media presence, redesigned the product UI & website. My efforts helped to generate a 20% increase in website traffic, over 100,000 new social media followers & over 600,000 views on videos & animations I created.
I also created multiple illustrated ranges of TeamSpeak merchandise, generating over £200,000 in revenue over the first year.
I designed exhibitions stands and travelled to gaming events & trade shows in US & EU to represent TeamSpeak, speaking to the fans both as a member of staff & playing the energetic alien mascot, Tim Speak.
June 2016 - October 2017
FKC London was my first job, I started working for them shortly before graduation.
FKC is a small but mighty agency, having around 20 members of staff while I was there yet generating brilliant results in brand, TV advertising, print & digital adverts, packaging design and animation. It was part of the Digital Innovation Group, a collection of small London agencies across different disciplines who co-operated on their work, so I also gained a lot of experience in the realms of web and app production.
The main clients I worked with at FKC were Papa John's Pizza, Soft & Gentle, Wash & Go & the tourism agencies of Thailand, Tunisia & Western Australia.
The agency underwent a rebrand while I was there, so I was asked to produce a new showreel & logo animations for the new identity.
January 2018 - March 2019
Beckford Huss Marketing is an integrated branding & advertising company based in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. While I worked there I managed branding & advertising projects for local & international clients.
I supervised junior members of staff, worked closely with developers & occasionally managed the design team. After working on their new website I created a new showreel.
