Interview with Shillington School graduate Hannah Tomlinson

Hannah Tomlinson

Today, I have the pleasure of introducing Hannah Tomlinson, a designer living and working in Manchester.  A former account executive, she stumbled upon the world of graphic design while working for an advertising agency. This new found interest sparked a desire to adjust her current career path and pursue an education at Shillington – a design school with campuses in the U.K., Australia and the United States. There, she received invaluable guidance from teachers such as Sarah McHugh and grain edit fave Jeffery Bowman. By honing her skills through a series of internships after graduation, she eventually landed a full-time gig at the multidisciplinary firm RetroFuzz. Today Hannah shares insight into the types of projects that drive her and how her experiences at Shillington better prepared her to enter a competitive work force.

jot form

Jotform is an online service that allows you to easily create and host forms for a variety of applications. Working with Jotform’s form builder you can conceive and construct forms for registration purposes, applications, surveys and more. However, until recently you were limited in design options. All that has changed with Jotform’s latest update, which allows you complete control over  the look and feel of your forms. Easily manipulate the colors, fonts and layout without knowing a single line of code.

To complement the release of the enhanced form builder Jotform has also launched a new theme marketplace. This should be of special interest to designers looking to showcase and sell their work. From now until June 15th, 2015  Jotform is waiving their fees so designers will earn one hundred percent of their theme sales. After the 15th, Jotform will retain 30%. To submit a theme, click the “new theme” button in the upper right corner of the My Themes page.
