Spotlight On: Creative Designer Johnny

Spotlight On: Creative Designer Johnny

Hi, I’m Jonny and I’m a creative designer here at GettingPersonal.co.uk.

I started working here in 2015 and been working here 4-ish years. When not designing, I love playing Basketball and I’m current holder of ‘The best Dancer in GP’ title.

Tell us a little bit about how you got started with your career

I was a child when I first started designing. My dad is a designer and I used to watch him work on his projects then try to replicate them with my own unique style (his designs were always better!). From there, I fell in love with designing and never looked back.

Describe a typical day in the life of a creative designer

A typical day in the life of a designer starts with the most important job. A strong cup of coffee! We’ll have regular team meetings to discuss work, we’ll be given a brief as guidance from our creative director and from there it’s just design, design, design. We spend our day making art for a variety of products, all the time making sure it is on trend for our lovely customers.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Inspiration can come from anywhere, from graffiti to a magazine, even a shop logo can spark a creative idea. I’ll also look at fashion for inspiration as their colour schemes and styles always tend to seep into product design. If it’s visual it can be a source of inspiration.

What’s the most challenging part of your job?

Making sure the design is right! Sometimes you design something that you believe is 90% there but you can’t fathom what will give it the extra 10% to make it perfect. Normally it can be something simple as the colour or a subtle change of font but to find what it is, is probably the most challenging.

What’s the best part of your job?

Not to sound cliché, but the people around me. There’s never a dull moment at Getting Personal l and it makes it easier to get the job done when the environment fun to work in.

Can you tell us what you’re working on at the moment?

I’m working on lots of projects at the moment! The one that is exciting me the most is the ‘Pop Art alphabet’ design. Each character has a unique design and persona. I hope you guys like it!
