Jack Harkin

Final Year BSc Interactive Media

Bio

Hi my name is Jack Harkin and I am a soon to be Interactive Media graduate at Ulster University. Over the last three years Interactive Media has allowed me to create with no limits and to learn new skills that I never would have done before. I have enjoyed everything, but the graphic design elements are what I have enjoyed the most. I have grasped the Adobe Creative Cloud Suit very well and to a high standard, I feel completely comfortable using any of their software.
