Lorna, one of our graphic designers here at Avatar, has been with us for over 6 months! Working across a variety of print and digital projects, Lorna brings a lot to the table with her eye for detail and creativity.
Q1. Over 6 months at Avatar! How does it feel?
It's been great! These months have flown by and whilst many of those months have been during lockdown, it has still been a fantastic experience.
Q2. What has been your biggest highlight at Avatar?
It would have to be my first pitch that I worked on with the team. From beginning to end we all worked incredibly hard on producing a pitch that we were really proud of. After all the hard work we put in and presenting it to the client (something which pushed me out of my comfort zone - for the better), we won! That was a great feeling.
Q3. What motivates you to get the job done?
Everyone in the studio is passionate about what they do and are always pushing to go above and beyond. I'm always looking to do the best I can, learn and make our clients happy! And when we get great feedback on something we've worked hard on, that's really quite rewarding.
Q4. What do you enjoy most about working at Avatar?
I've touched on it above, but I do love how passionate everyone is about doing a great job and how everyone brings something different to the table. It's also a great environment to be in, the team are friendly and the location of our studio at the farm is really quite special.
Q5. What is the most valuable thing you have learnt during your time at Avatar?
It's tricky to pick just one! I've learnt so much already and it's only been 6 months. I've learnt to really think about why we're doing things, why we're taking a particular creative route over another to ensure the result is so much more than something that just looks good. I've also learnt that jumping out of my comfort zone is actually not so scary and is actually just what I needed to improve!
Q6. How have you found Avatar during lockdown?
It certainly has been an interesting time! I am so glad that everyone is back working again and that we are all adapting to working from home safely. It's been so valuable to keep in touch with the whole team throughout this unusual time, set goals and keep talking to each other. It wasn't something we saw coming but I think we all dealt with it the best we could and I look forward to the future.
Q7. Describe Avatar in 3 words
Passionate, thoughtful and precise.
