What made you want to work for Fifteen?
The passion and enthusiasm that is reflected by the company and their work. It shows the team really care and take pride in everything they do, and the copious number of awards they’ve won emphasise this. I immediately knew this would be a great company to work for!
Why did you become a Graphic Designer and what are the most enjoyable aspects of the job?
I’ve always loved being able to express myself creatively, and becoming a Graphic Designer has been a natural progression of exploring different elements of design and enjoying it as much as a hobby as well as a career. One of the main aspects I enjoy is the problem solving that comes with each new challenge, and exploring the possible solutions that bring a project to life and capture the vision of the client in a tangible form.
What’s the most unusual fact about yourself that not a lot of people know?
Back in the day I must have fancied myself as a bit of a hairdresser, and made a deal with my brother to cut each other’s hair. After seeing the abomination I’d made of his fringe, I backed out of the deal and left him looking like he’d been attacked by a lawn mower.
