Describe your path to what you’re doing now from studying at Norwich University of the Arts

I was lucky to be offered a few jobs via the Norwich School of Art & Design end of year show, but I actually ended up taking a junior designer role at Pearlfisher on the back of a friend recommending I go in for an interview. It was a far smaller agency back then and I liked the idea of learning how the role worked as the company grew too. I had close to seven great years there and learned a huge amount from the team, working on local and global brands; I got to travel a lot, worked my way up to a Design Director role, was part of an exciting office move and made some great lifelong friends along the way.
