What does a typical working day look like?
I work eight hours per day, five days a week. I’m not really a morning person, so it’s great that Superrb has flexi-start, so I can sleep a bit longer. I usually come to the office at around 10am and work till 7pm. I live five minutes from the studio and have no commute at all. I don’t really have a specific morning routine, though I do manage to get in a 40-minute lunch workout at the gym near the studio.
I try to concentrate on one project at a time, but during busier periods, I have to juggle between different projects and tasks, in order to meet the most urgent deadlines. My ideal working day is when I have one big project going, so I can focus on getting all the work done for that one project.
How did you land your current job?
After university, I freelanced for a while. It was going well, but I wanted to get more professional experience to see what it’d be like to work at a design studio. I found the advert for a digital designer role at Superrb on If You Could. They were looking for someone with over three years’ professional experience in the industry, so I wasn’t qualified for the role. But I was just honest, and told them that I really liked their work and that even though I wasn’t experienced enough, I was keen to learn. I guess my passion and honesty paid off.
On a side note: I did also put quite a lot of work into my own portfolio website and self-promotion beforehand, so it’s not just honesty or passion that gave me the edge.
