Well, I’ve done nearly four years I think now, at small start-up agencies, starting at junior level and working my way up. The last being a small agency in Bolton.
Erm.. I’ve always liked creating stuff so… so maybe, I wouldn’t say graphic design was always the clear route for me but I'm really glad it's where I've ended up. Ever since I was little, I’ve always enjoyed creating, so I think this has been a sort of natural pathway.
Every day is different, the clients we work with are all very different, so I guess it's the variety of work and constantly being challenged.
Happy accidents… erm no, I think you’ve just got to work at it, and eventually, hopefully, you’ll spark something which will set off a chain reaction and it’ll all start to fall into place, a domino effect I guess. Keeping inspired through research and seeing what new design trends are happening really helps too.
I think we’re open enough and honest enough for anyone to approach us. We’re down-to-earth, straight-talking, strong creatively, technically, and strategically. We're here to help the client at the end of the day, so it's finding the balance that works for both parties and the solution that will achieve the best result for them.
It’s been eye-opening, it's been a very different experience from where I’ve been previously, but in a good way you know. I’m trying to take things in a bit differently, being a lot more considered, planning things out more. I think I’m really benefitting from it. Thinking before I do, rather than thinking whilst I do.
I’ve enjoyed working on our brand, we’ve been working on a refresh, that’s been really interesting as it’s sort of a new chapter for the company if you will. I suppose I’ve just been enjoying experimenting with different ways of doing things I guess. I mean we’ve done a few social posts and we are working towards something, there’s a clear path we’re following and a goal to achieve.
I’ve had a lot of Marvin Gaye on this week actually.
I’m a bit of a Shepard Fairey fanboy so I’d say Futura.
Erm oh god… how would I… quiet, head down… no, Open to listening.
Exactly the same.
Erm.. I always like the mad max quote “oh, what a day, what a lovely day” it’s a nice juxtaposition, nice happy quote mixed in with all the chaos.
Erm, a lot is from my Instagram saved section, anything I really like I’ll save, so I’ve got this big massive stockpile of stuff, full of all sorts.
