One to watch

This year we’ll try to post a short profile about our most recent intern to bring your attention to a little up and coming talent...

Hi, what’s your name and where do you come from?

Hi! I’m Maisie, home is Leicester but I’m studying in Falmouth

How old are you?

20

Describe yourself in 3 words...

Enthusiastic, Honest, Interested

What do you doodle when you are bored?

Straight lines and circles generally but quite often the corners of my pages turn into spider’s webs

What inspired/inspires you to be a designer?

I’ve always really liked good adverts and so started to think about going into advertising, then I read ‘A Smile in the Mind’ which shifted my attention to graphic design! I love small, clever details on things that not many people will notice.

Which piece of work are you most proud of?

Probably my most recent project, branding and packaging a global city beekeeper’s products:

 

I based the design on graphic road markings from different cities to give the range strong visual impact – particularly on shelf, with a simple bee logo to correspond and tie the brand together.

 

Give us an interesting fact about yourself

I’m great at the game BopIt. It’s a real talent…

What next?

Back to uni next week to finish my second year, then hopefully a few more placements over the summer to get ready for my final year.

Sadly Maisie doesn’t quite have a website up-and-running yet but you can see some work on her brilliantly opinionated blog.
