Head of Design
What has your best moment been while working at Fifteen?
I’ve been here for years so it’s hard to pin down a ‘best’ moment. I would probably say it was the holiday to Ibiza though! Attending the RAR awards was also fantastic, celebrating 10 years in business in 2014 was great… there’s too many moments to mention!
Why did you become a designer and what are the most enjoyable aspects of the job?
I feel like I was always artistic, but never really connected with Fine Art. I think I was drawn to the type of art that really served a purpose, so that’s what drove me to study Graphic Design. I really enjoy brand design, it’s probably my favourite thing to do. Web design is also a fantastic but a challenging thing to get right because it changes all the time and keeps you on your toes as a designer!
What’s the most unusual fact about yourself that not a lot of people know?
I have two trophies – one for Lawn Bowls (believe it!), the other for Badminton.
What would we be likely to bump into you doing at the weekend?
In the cinema, I’ve got an unlimited card for Cineworld and I like getting my money’s worth!
What inspires you?
Without sounding completely cheesy, the talented people at Fifteen inspire me on a daily basis. Both on a personal and professional level, the team are so brilliant and it’s a pleasure to work with them all!
My party trick is: shuffling cards in a particularly fancy manner!
If I was born a boy, my parents would have named me: Alex, funnily enough!
My favourite cocktail is: Hummingbird from Turtle Bay
If I was in a band, we would be called: 500 miles
I cringe at: stupid people on game shows.
I laugh at: people falling over. When is that NOT funny?
On my way to work I: listen to podcasts or sing loudly!
If I won the lottery, I would: invest it in property and give plenty of it to my parents
My home from home is: Portsoy, Scotland
The best piece of advice I’ve ever had is: if them b*****s ain’t paying your bills, pay them b*****s no mind!
I am never without: my eyebrows filled in.Back to Team
