Tell us a bit about yourself
A proud Pisces with a passion for fashion. I LOVE to travel, I’m a massive foodie and an avid crystal collector. Weekends are usually spent sipping on pints and boogieing on the dance floor with my pals.
Summarise your role at JUMP
I work as a Marketing Assistant here at JUMP. I started as an apprentice and now work full-time within our marketing team! My roles consist of helping client projects, both with marketing and a few bits of design. I also work on marketing JUMP.
I do anything from creating unique, innovative posts for social media to editing images in Photoshop. I will take any challenge thrown at me!
How did you get into graphic design & marketing?
I’m an innovative being, so naturally I was drawn to a creative job! With an excitement for art and design, marketing seemed like a great path to go down. I get bored very easily, but with a job like this, there is no room for boredom!
Describe the project you've worked on that you're proudest of. What did you do that worked out particularly well?
My journey at JUMP has only just started, so I don’t have a major project to talk about just yet! So far, I am getting a taste of the kinds of brands we will be working with, and I can’t wait to see what projects I am going to be a part of.
What do you hope to achieve at JUMP?
This is just the start of my career path. Eventually, my aim is to become a successful digital marketer. Throughout working at JUMP, I hope to express my creativity and gain new skills along the way.
What do you like most about graphic design and marketing?
From what I have seen so far, there is never a dull day in this industry. I love the excitement and diversity of projects, and seeing your work being used by a company is always a huge bonus!
Finally, what advice would you give to any apprentices starting out?
Put yourself out there and don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Creative blocks are normal and will pass. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and most importantly be yourself!
