Tea with varying amounts of milk/sugar depending on the day.
I started as a digital marketing apprentice back in 2017. Before this I was enrolled in a dead-end college course that I knew wasn’t for me – I eventually decided to drop out and search for an apprenticeship. Two years later and I’m still part of the team but in a very different role.
One of the best things about my job is that I don’t have a typical day or even week. One week I could be working on the wireframe of a new site and then next I might be designing press packs.
Yes definitely, but I don’t want to pick up just one ‘style’ of work. If you’ve got a specific creative style it sets boundaries for what you can and cannot do. In my view, parameters should be for brands, not people.
I’m inspired by quite a few people, and will always admire the work of Paul Smith, Peter Saville, Kate Moross and Sam Burgess-Johnson. But recently I’ve been more motivated by designers who are using their talent as a force for good. Clive Russell is one of the designers who branded the Extinction Rebellion movement which served as a massive wake-up call to the creative industry to act on the climate crisis.
I’ve really enjoyed working as part of a smaller team. In larger teams, it’s much harder to get really invested and truly excited about the end goal whatever that may be, and there’s always a risk of too many cooks spoiling the broth. There’s none of that here.
Cool, creative & collected.
Clumsy, chaotic definitely not collected.
