In our second instalment of our Spotlight Q&A series, we interview Josh, our Junior Graphic Designer.
What is your role at Print Creative?
Junior Graphic Designer.
What inspired you to become a graphic designer?
I was inspired to become a graphic designer at Sixth form where I was studying creative media and found a love for typography and lettering and wanted to learn and explore more about graphic design, which lead me to university and now to Print Creative.
What does a typical day look like for you and what are you currently working on?
A typical day always starts with coffee, either when in the office or WFH, then I usually go through my emails I may have got overnight and plan out my day. Lunch is probably the most important part, deciding what to have! I’m currently working on some character animation, so I’m learning how to use Adobe Character Animator and how it can be used as well as After Effects.
What has been your favourite project at Print Creative?
So far, my favourite project has been the animation and video projects we’ve done for some of our clients, as it has allowed me to learn and be pushed out of my comfort zone.
What’s the best part about your role at Print Creative?
Definitely the best part is working in a close team where we can bounce ideas off each other.
If you could add one thing to the PC Studio, what would it be?
An office pet, although when Pip visits productivity goes considerably down.
What is your favourite thing about Birmingham?
The growing creative community in Birmingham with all the events Birmingham Design run, as well as the Birmingham Design Festival which is a great way to connect with other creatives in Birmingham and the surrounding areas.
What was the last book you read?
I’ve just finished Solaris by Stanislaw Lem, the story follows a Psychologist who visits a space station to find the crew haunted by hallucinations of their past, which he develops and needs to find a way to stop them. I’m going to read Christine by Stephen King next.
What’s your secret talent that no one knows about?
I’ve been taught to play a brass instrument since I was a child, and now play the soprano cornet in a brass band in Malvern.
If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose?
Something like telekinesis so I can move stuff without having to get up!
