GET TO KNOW US A LITTLE BETTER
My customers have a good understanding what myself and Focal Creative is all about but if you’re stumbling across me and Focal Creative for the first time, we want to give you a good idea of exactly who we are. With that in mind, I decided to answer, in 500 words or less, 5 random questions from the 22 most common interview questions according to Indeed.
Q1. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF?
In three words… committed, passionate and ambitious. I love to work hard but always with a big smile on my face. I am a big believer in you've got to love what you do. Life is too short, to be negative! I love meeting new people, traveling to new places and expressing myself through my work.
Q2. WHAT MOTIVATES YOU?
I honestly love collaborating with other like minded people and using my skill-set to help others. I want to achieve great things and be the best possible version of me. I am in no way the finished article and I am always looking to develop my own skill set, learning from others along the way.
Q3. WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE?
What I believe makes me stand-out from other creative / marketing professionals is an ability to understand the people behind a business, the company’s ambitions and the marketplace itself. A lot of creatives fall guilty of ignoring briefs or designing for themselves. I take pride in my ability in getting to know and understand the companies I work with and successfully translate project briefs. I’m also unique as I have experience as a graphic designer as well as a marketing executive. This means I can produce artwork which is both stunning and effective.
Q4. WHAT ARE YOUR GREATEST WEAKNESSES?
I am a perfectionist, to a point where it can drive me crazy! But I have learnt ways to deal with it and I'm looking to improve my ability to let go and switch off from work.
Q5. WHY SHOULD I WORK WITH YOU?
If you want someone who is motivated, highly proficient and has your best interests at the heart of everything they do, then I am your man. I want to build long-lasting, mutually beneficial working relationships, not quick financial gains. I consider ourselves as a creative partner rather than a service provider.
