Ope Aro

Graphic Designer

I am a Graphic Designer with experience in graphic design, illustration, video editing, and animation. I provide support through creative means on various IOD PARC projects, as well as designing internal resources and working on the company design portfolio. I joined IOD PARC in 2022 and sit within the Information and Design Team.

My interest in graphic design comes from my interest in art and other varied creative work. I am constantly learning and looking to improve my skills. I enjoy working with people and taking ideas from start to finish in design projects. I believe graphic design is a great way to communicate ideas and concepts. At IOD PARC, design takes complex information and ideas and turns them into something visually interesting. I enjoy problem-solving in a way that can help show information in a more accessible form for evaluation purposes.

My work is naturally creative and involves using the design process and my creative skills to support the team at IOD. I work with consultants who need design support and use my expertise in specific creative areas. I work on maintaining branding quality, creating concepts, and developing new ideas.

Before joining IOD, I was a freelance graphic designer and have previously worked as a video editor and interned as a content editor and graphic designer. I hold an HND in Digital Media from City of Glasgow College.
