How would you describe your job?
It’s a design role, but that doesn’t mean we are always designing websites or brand identities. Using creative thinking is probably a better way to put it, as it’s used in everything from research and workshops to applying a signed-off identity to different formats.
What does a typical working day look like?
I arrive at the studio about 8.40am. I live on the Wirral so it’s only about 30 minutes’ drive away depending on traffic. First thing is to get the coffee brewing, turn the computer on and see what’s on the schedule. There isn’t a ‘typical’ working day in terms of the role, as one day can be spent researching or creating a workshop, and the next might be artworking something that has just been signed off by a client.
What do you like about working in Liverpool?
Liverpool is great. After university, everyone moved to London while I went travelling, but I was always going to come back here. I discovered a creative scene that I didn’t know was here: events where studios would share their stories and advice, places to meet other people looking to get a foot in the door, and those willing to help along the way. Which is how I met Robyn Dooley and joined [creative industry platform] OH.
