We are really proud to have incredibly talented and creative people on board and our graphic designer Emma is definitely one of them. Today we are introducing you to Emma Nicholls who works closely with our head of creative to help bring ideas to life, adding her own creative flair to projects. Let’s dive in and find out more about her background and passions.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
Helloooo I’m Emma, a graphic designer at Station Rd. and have been here for almost a year (time flies when you’re having fun!). I did my degree at Leeds University of the Arts, went on to complete internships at Green Chameleon and Oslo Agency and then worked as an in-house designer at World Class Media. Luckily, during my path to find the perfect job, I came across Station Rd., and the rest is history! Outside of my busy schedule, I enjoy relaxing with Yoga to help keep me zen 🙂 I am also currently doing a part-time Master’s degree in marketing at the University of West England outside of work to inform my practice.
If you were to describe yourself in five words, what would they be?
Easy-going, determined, calm, positive and kind.
What has been your favourite project that you’ve worked on?
I did some design work for a female DJ collective during my time at University. This work then went on to help me win a national internship for an events company, Good Life, to do their merchandise design. This was really fun as I did a lot of screen printing and was free to get really creative with the designs.
What’s been your most memorable piece of work?
Probably, when I was starting out in Station Rd. I got the chance to work on a website redesign for a construction company. I’d only done a little bit of website design before but that really enjoyed it!
Why did you decide to join the Station Rd team?
After working in-house, I knew I wanted to do agency work. Immediately after meeting the team for my interview I knew Station Rd. was right for me. Their values aligned with mine which is important to me and the prospect of joining a progressive agency along with such a switched-on team was so exciting.
Tell us one thing that we wouldn’t know about you?
I actually went on to do Fine Arts in University, to focus on sculpture – then changed last minute to graphic design as I felt my skills were better equipped for it!
