Keeping up our tradition of welcome Q&As, we’re happy to welcome Frances, one of our two new designers!

Since graduating from York St John University with a BA Hons in Graphic Design, Frances worked for two years in a design agency and has recently joined us at TDL Creative.

What made you want to work at TDL?

TDL caught my eye with the interesting array of projects and clients, with a friendly looking team. It’s also quite different to the type of work that I was doing before which created an exciting new challenge.

If you could design one thing what would it be?

It would be very exciting designing an actual rocket!

If you had to frame one piece of graphic design what would it be?

What’s your “party trick”?

I can wink like Pingu

You’re having a TV marathon this weekend. Which box set would you choose and which snacks would you provide?

The show would be Stranger Things and the snacks would include chocolate buttons, Milk Tray, grapes, cheese balls, bacon rashers, Pringles (if they’re half price), strawberry laces and skittles.

Who would be your dream client and why?

Scooby Doo.

  1. He’s a good boy
  2. Style is on point
  3. We’d be able to solve any design mystery

How do you embody the TDL team values? (creative & innovative, enthusiastic team, responsive & reliable)

Creative & innovative: I find the whole process of being creative super exciting from the first concepts to the final output. This can be for anything from big team projects or personal projects to new food recipes or DIY. It’s really rewarding and fun!

Enthusiastic team: Feedback and other people’s ideas gives you ways to improve on something which can only be a good thing.

Responsive & reliable: I enjoy helping out whenever possible for the best outcome.

What are three things you’d love to learn this year?

  1. How to make a cake like my Grandma
  2. How to go out out socially distanced
  3. How to roller-skate and make it look easy!

You’re organising the TDL Christmas party- where do you send us?

Go karting?? Then somewhere with great food and drinks

Think about your job role at TDL – which animal best represents you at work and why?

As a Junior, I will be shadowing a more senior member of the team and learning as much as I
can and helping out wherever I can, much like an ant would.
