We are pleased to welcome two new designers to the London studio and are keeping up the tradition of asking them some quick-fire questions so that we (and you) can get to know them better.
What made you want to work at TDL?
I enjoy problem solving and working on ‘useful’ design that aims to do more than just look cool. I was also excited by the opportunity to work somewhere where I could continue to learn and grow as a designer.
If you could design one thing what would it be?
I would love to design a house!
If you had to frame one piece of graphic design what would it be?
Probably a large illustrated map of the mountain regions in Switzerland.
What’s your “party trick”?
I can do unnecessarily elaborate plaits.
You’re having a TV marathon this weekend. Which box set would you choose and which snacks would you provide?
Friends because everyone loves it, no matter how many times they’ve seen it! I would provide pizza and cake.
Who would be your dream client and why?
A client that requires me to go and work in Australia (the dream!)
How do you embody the TDL team values? (creative & innovative, enthusiastic team, responsive & reliable)
Creative & innovative: I enjoy problem solving and thinking about different ways to display something.
Enthusiastic team: I try to get involved in things that are going on both in and out of work hours.
Responsive & reliable: I am able to adapt to different situations to ensure I meet deadlines.
What are three things you’d love to learn this year?
- To surf! (I realise this is quite difficult to do in London so might require some weekend trips…)
- How to make amazing banana bread
- I really want to make a pair of dungarees
You’re organising the TDL Christmas party- where do you send us?
On an ice skating trip, somewhere with loads of pretty lights, followed by a big Christmas dinner and drinks!
Think about your job role at TDL – which animal best represents you at work and why?
Possibly a squirrel because I always have some snacks hidden away for when I get peckish!
