I studied 3D animation and love working on big scenes as a texture artist. I am also a designer and love working with clients to make their ideas come to life. I am a very eccentric and fun person that always has some idea or painting or creation on the go. I have a huge love of Disney, Marvel, DC and animals. I am always bringing home a rescue.
What about Digital Marketing interests you?
The fact that you can reach so many people from one place. Sitting behind your computer coming up with fun ideas for your clients and then executing them and watching how people around the world respond is always interesting.
How did you come across Deeply Digital?
I started as a PA in their sister company. I saw an advert on Facebook for a position and I applied. While I was at the sister company I was given the opportunity to move over into my current role that allowed for a more creative space for a creative soul.
How long have you been part of the Deeply Digital team for?
+- 2 months.
What did you do before Joining the Deeply Digital team?
I was a designer on a freelance basis and I assist in a family company at the same time.
What have been the highlights of your time here so far?
Cheesy as it may sound, the people. This team is extremely supportive and a lot of fun to be around.
Not a day goes by that you do not hear someone jamming to a song in the office or cracking some silly jokes. We are free to be who we are in a safe creative space. I love that we can also dress in what makes us comfortable and as an avid cosplayer I do often add elements to my office outfits.
Do you think there is room to grow in the company?
Yes, I do. They offer us incentives for bettering our skills by taking courses, etc. These courses allow us to grow in our roles and perhaps even find new positions in the company.
How do you find the work environment and the team you work with?
As I said earlier, the work environment is awesome. I feel welcome and can ask for help whenever I find myself struggling. Someone in the team is bound to have a solution or the skills to assist me.
Is there anything that you’ve learnt at Deeply Digital that stands out?
Social media in general. I did not have a social media background, nor did I study it. Being here I have learnt many new skills and have encountered information that I would not have encountered had I not been working here, which benefits my clients and myself.
What is your favourite social media platform and why?
Facebook, all the way. It is a great way to promote your business, share your thoughts, find what’s trending, etc. Facebook is a very useful tool for any brand or person. It is the one place that I feel any person should concentrate their efforts.
