My role of Lead Digital Designer at Clicky is very varied, I work alongside multiple teams and on a variety of different projects from UX design to branding and digital marketing. My passion really lies with UX and UI design. Creating and maintaining engaging websites with great user experiences.
Some of the branding projects I've worked on have been so interesting and exciting. I love being able to help build a brand for a client, it's so satisfying when you see it rolled out across everything and come to life.
I did a 2 year Foundation Degree at Sheffield College in Graphic Design and I also did quite a bit of work experience so that I could build up my portfolio as this is really want employers want to see.
My first job was in print. It was around that time digital and tech was becoming huge, although I enjoyed my job in print there was so much more opportunity in digital and I was excited to get involved with it.
It sounds like a cliché but the future really is digital and there are so many different opportunities in digital and tech. You don't always need to come from an educated or technical background and many skills can be learnt on the job.
