Today we meet Georgina, the Evolution Travel winner - a freelance based in the UK who loves to design for museums. She has recently took on London 2010 Triathlon challenge!
Here is her story!
BootB: Tell us something new about Georgina, something you didn’t write in your BootB public profile.
georgina: Two weeks ago I appeared in the The Times ( national British newspaper) in my friends Illustration. I am often having to get dressed up in different disguises to appear in magazines and newspapers…
What did you want to be when you were a child?
What are the most difficult challenges a freelance designer faces in this career?
When I first became a freelancer I struggled to have a constant flow of work. I have only really started this year after I completed my Masters degree in December. It seems to be OK at the moment (fingers crossed).
What’s the best thing about your job? And the worst?
The best thing about my job is the satisfaction that comes from good, effective design along with a pleased client. The worst thing? Late nights!
Describe your style, like a good friend of yours would describe it.
Collage, humourous and fun with a creative approach to narrative.
How did you run across BootB.com?
A friend mentioned it to me.
Which designers, artists or creative people you look up to or are inspired by?
Jonas Odell. Johnny Kelly. Stanley Kubrick. Saul Bass. Terry Gilliam.
What would be your dream project?
I would love to get paid to make a similar film to the one below which I designed during my Masters. I really enjoy using humor in my work as it depicts some of my personality! I have had lots of interest in it and lots of very interesting and promising leads…
What are you most proud of professionally?
I think that I am most proud of the work that I am currently creating. On a day to day basis I am working with a design company to produce design content for a museum in the Middle East. However I have several projects that I am equally proud of that I am working on at home. Some of which I am in the process of pitching for via BootB so I can’t really say too much about them!!
Where would we find you on a typical Saturday morning?
I would like to say something interesting to answer this question but for the past few weeks I have been doing work at home on my computer. Other then that I might be sleeping…or swimming.
So you took part in the London Triathlon 2010! Are you a sporty person in general or how come you decided to participate?
A group of my friends were doing the Triathlon this year and my brother did it last year. I guess I did it for the challenge. I am not normally sporty but I have now invested in a good bike and trainers so I feel like I should use them!
Hope you enjoyed this interview. We will meet new BootB butterflies soon!
