Kim Ridgway 

An ambitious, hard working individual, currently completing my final year of studies after completing 14 months placement with The Body Shop, L’Oreal as a Packaging Technologist for Skin Care. 

I have a keen interest in product and packaging design. I enjoy the possibilities in design and love to create objects that are both aesthetically and functionally pleasing, whilst developing and understanding of the human psyche and perception involved in sales and presentation. I'm creative and confident in my own abilities, but now seek the opportunity to develop a 'real world' understanding of the financial and media-conscious parameters that enable a company to develop their product placement and public image to best effect.
