That everyone has good and bad days. Although the bad days are a mess it makes the good days even better. The fact that I can come to work or go to university and know I’ll have fun that day is really a selling point for the industry.
What has been your proudest moment so far?
I did some T shirt designs for a company that arranges running events and seeing everyone wearing them at the pub after the event was really humbling.
