Best part of your job?
A: The best part of my job is going out networking and meeting new people. I absolutely love travelling and occasionally get the train to cities. So far, I have done Leeds, London and York.
Is there anything about your job that you really don’t like?
A: I don’t particularly enjoy the online webinars but it’s part of my training, so I always knuckle down and get them done. Other than those, I really enjoy my job.
Favourite thing about working in this industry?
A: Seeing all the creative work that the team do as actual printed products. I love seeing the bottle labels we’ve created when they are on the shelves, especially as I have played a part in the advertising and promoting of them.
Which company/individual on do you do the most work with?
A: My main focus has been promoting LemonTop through social media, digital marketing and going to networking events but I also work with a lot of other very interesting clients.
Famous people you’d love to meet and why?
A: Declan Mckenna because he is a fantastic musician and has a lot of interesting ideas, including some unorthodox ways to help protect the planet and prevent global warming. Sam Fender would be someone I’d love to take creative inspiration from and Drew because he is so funny, he would take down the tension and sadness after Declan has protested too much about climate change and make everyone happy again.

A: Probably a Fashion Journalist as I’m really into fashion and I often repurpose my old clothes to make something completely new out of them.
