Ryley Devine has long been a fan of Leeds-based agency, Robot Food. Often referencing the agency’s work while studying at Nottingham Trent University, once a junior role opened up there, she quickly applied – despite originally thinking she might be too inexperienced. Since joining the agency, Ryley has taken on a range of tasks and projects, including creating the branding for plant-based dessert brand, Over The Spoon. In addition to bringing the brand’s mascot to life, the project gave her a chance to show off her “loud, proud and colourful” illustrative aesthetic, and also increased her confidence. Here, Ryley discusses internships, starting a job during a pandemic and the pride of seeing her work come to life in the physical world.
