Liam Rainford

Junior Graphic Designer & Animator

Graduating Leeds Arts University with a BA in Graphic Design and gaining experience with a design firm in New York, I came back to the UK to explore the design world even further with enthusiasm and vigor. I started making waves at Fishtank in November 2020. After finishing my studies and learning from creators and innovators around the world, I saw Fishtank as the perfect fit for me to officially begin my career in Design.

I embrace all aspects of Graphic Design, from digital print to animation, but I am particularly passionate about branding and the impact it can have on businesses, charities and other organisations. I am looking forward to unleashing my passion, work ethic and conceptual thinking to help our clients stand out in their market and reach their audience in a unique and powerful way.

I believe learning new things gives me a greater perspective on life and influences my creativity.

I’ve always enjoyed the creative side of life and learning about new and interesting topics. The ability to work with clients from a variety of industries with diverse backgrounds has already allowed me to dive straight in and learn so much in such a little space of time. I love how there is always more you can learn about graphic design, you can never really know it all - there’s always a new software, trend or technique you haven’t yet explored. I hope to continuously improve my skills especially in developing brand identities, animation, digital design and working in a team with a broad spectrum of skill sets and life experiences.

Life Outside the Tank

Outside the tank, I spend most of my time recharging my batteries in the beauty of nature; camping, skateboarding and enjoying the great outdoors. As well as always having a non-fiction book on the go, I love to learn about anything and everything, design, science, psychology, history…

Bucket List

To no surprise, my love of the outdoors creates a very adventure filled bucket list. I hope to one day embark on a camping trip around Scotland to enjoy the beauty of the stars with no light pollution. Buying a lake house in the lake district has to be mentioned and I would also love to build my own home - architecture fascinates me.
