Since completing my Graphic Design Degree at UCA, I’ve wanted to work in a lively, thriving and sociable Design Agency, and all I can say is that I have found exactly that here at Jellybean!
I came to Jellybean from working as an In house designer for a furniture company. This meant I had one client, which in turn meant I never felt I was working to my full potential, and my creativity felt a bit limited – being only one client. I enjoyed my time there though and learnt a lot, but it was time for a change!
I wanted a challenge, somewhere that I could really develop my skills and really grow within the company. I knew that Jellybean would allow me to do this, and so far I have been right!
I hit the ground running and was able to learn the ways of agency life quickly. The work is wide and varied, and differs on a day-to-day basis. One day you could be working on a magazine ad, the next day a packaging brief or a photo-shoot, and all this for several different clients -which really gets the creative juices flowing!
I couldn’t have joined at a better time – just before Christmas! A time when companies come to life – Jellybean was no exception. The whole team made me feel welcome from the get go, with social events happening after work, it was a great way to meet everyone.
I have learnt so much in a short time and hopefully have brought some fresh creative thinking to briefs! I really don’t know where the time has gone, but all I can say is that is the sign of a great job and I am looking forward to what the future holds.
