Solutions through design, uniqueness, individuality, client satisfaction and overall great design


You have been with the company for some time now. How long has it been?

6 years including internship

You started your career with us as an intern, can you tell about that experience?

I felt I was treated as an employee by working on real tasks and clients



What was the reason that you chose our organisation at the time?

Word of mouth, ANCHOVY. was mentioned at school.


What is your current role and why are you passionate about it?

Head of Design. I love design in general. I always strive to give inspiration or create a visually appealing piece of work



What where the challenges that you faced through out all this time?

Workload, internal misalignments, hard clients



Name one favorite thing and one challenging thing about your current role?

To think outside the box. It's a double edged sword since it is enjoyable to explore and experiment, but is time consuming (not ideal for a fast pace agency).



Do you see any improvements during your time here? If yes please explain in detail.

Quality of work and managerial skills. I also think that I improved on giving critical feedback.



If you had a magic wand where anything is possible what would you change within your role?

More time to experiment, a huge team of specialized designers to lead and bigger scoped projects to work on



What drives or inspires you?

Solutions through design, uniqueness, individuality, client satisfaction and overall good design
