For this month's meet the team feature, we interviewed our lovely senior designer, Gill. Here's what she had to say...
ENFP (Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling and Perceiving)
It means I have a curious, lively and creative personality with a strong disregard for rudeness and spreadsheets.
An average day for me in the studio involves tackling a series of visual design problems. Some are intuitively straightforward, whilst others take a lot more research, testing, experimentation and deliberation to solve. Hence the large amount of tea, coffee and melty Dutch caramel biscuits that are consumed as well as a visit to my trusted ‘ideas bench’ overlooking the river Tay. My role is to present my design ideas in a clear and creative way in order to explain how they tell a brand’s story.
Oh, and every so often I remember to water my Aloe Vera plant, Boris.
Collaboration. Working with such a lovely, close-knit team of talented individuals is what makes me excited to come to work. Watching all the different elements of a project come together beautifully to produce some strategically thoughtful, creative and technically impressive designs is an amazing feeling. Building brands that make clients and their customers happy is what puts a smile on my face.
Aside from listening to Scottish indie bands, sampling local artisan street food, hurtling down a mountain on a board and chasing round a gregarious toddler, I love nothing more than stretching out the day at my Thursday evening yoga class; after which I always have the best night’s sleep.
David Attenborough – what an endlessly fascinating career spanning decades. I could listen to those dulcet tones all day long.
Roald Dahl – a brilliantly bonkers storyteller.
Marie Antoinette – she knew how to party.
