1. When did you discover you wanted to work in the creative industry?
I was first introduced to the world of design at a young age (8-9) when I began designing personalised cards for my family, I cringe looking back at the memory. I decided to go down the line of design, when I realised, I had a creative flare throughout my years of education, with subjects such as Art & Design being my most successful modules in GCSE and A-Level. This led to me developing upon my skills and undertaking a media course at the SouthWest College and later moving onto uni to study Creative Technologies.
2. Favourite piece of work to date?
The CAROL-OKE competition graphics for Liberty Insurance. I created a range of social media graphics for their ‘CAROL-OKE: 12 days of Christmas’ Twitter campaign which was focused on guessing the correct Christmas song. Each day one winner would receive a €50 Mastercard. I created a variety of emoji gifs that represented 12 popular Christmas songs.
3. Best concert you’ve ever attended?
BBC Radio Weekend in 2013, Dizzie Rascal was my favourite!
