How would you describe your job?
I’m a senior designer within the team. I work three days a week, spending the other two days looking after my one year old daughter. As we’re a small team we all work closely together and have a broad range of responsibilities. My role covers everything from coming up with ideas, managing projects, design development, liaising with clients, artworking, making tea and buying the toilet rolls!
What does a typical working day look like?
I’m lucky that I am able to walk to work. Bath is a beautiful place and after the chaos of getting my baby daughter ready in the morning, the 25-minute walk is a good chance to practice some mindfulness and clear my head.
After that, there isn’t really a typical day, it all depends on the work going on in the studio and what stage we’re at on the projects. For me, the perfect day would be half a day coming up with ideas, brainstorming them as a team and then starting to bring them to life in the afternoon.
What do you like about working in the part of the UK you’re based in?
I love the work-life balance that working in Bath allows. Not having a long commute means more time for my family. I also love that there is a blossoming design industry in the South West with some great agencies doing brilliant work and a sense of creative community. I feel like there is London-quality work, with a more relaxed way of life.
