What's your advice for someone wanting to get into the Digital industry?
Be a literal sponge (okay, maybe figuratively) - soak up any and all knowledge that you can. Also, never undervalue concept work! Make sure you’re showing it to potential employers. It doesn’t matter if you’ve not had the opportunity to do something for a client, R&D projects can get your foot in the door and show what you’re capable of.
What's the best kept secret in Bristol?
I hoard illustrations, prints and cigarette cards that always need framing so The Little Framing Company in The Island on Nelson Street. They have a brilliant selection of frames in their workshop and they do the most beautiful bespoke jobs.
