Meet our new Graduate Designers, Liam and Beth!

We’re super excited to welcome our new 2017/18 designers onto the team. Say hello to Liam and Beth! 👋🏻

Time to find out a little more about them...

Hello, I’m Liam, and I’ve just joined the StrawbToo design team! I’ve just completed a degree in Graphic Design at the Hull School of Art & Design. I wanted to stay in Hull as it's the City of Culture this year, plus having StrawberryToo right on my doorstep made my decision easy. Outside of design I’m a huge sports fan and I really enjoy football and boxing. I’m looking forward to enhancing my design skills and gaining valuable experience in the design industry.

Hi, I’m Beth and I’m one of the new Graphic Designers at StrawberryToo! I’ve just graduated from Loughborough University where I did a BA in Graphic Communication and Illustration. I really enjoyed my three years at university but I’m definitely ready to move on to my next challenge and I can’t wait to get my teeth stuck into some exciting briefs here at Too. Aside from being a design nut, I’m known for my love of food and having a soft spot for virtually any animal (spiders included!)

And we couldn’t let them get away without answering our silly questions now could we?

What's your most used emoji?

L: Tears of joy is easily my most used but I randomly like the racehorse too 😂🏇

B: Probably either the blushing smiley face or the crying laughing face 😊😂

Secret celebrity crush?

L: Ariana Grande

B: Kit Harrington, aka Jon Snow 🙈

Best chat-up line?

L: Are you a parking ticket cause you’ve got fine written all over you! 👀

B: I don’t think I’ve ever actually used a chat up line 😂, if I did I imagine it would be something really cheesy!

Guilty pleasure TV show?

L: Eastenders, made to watch it by my girlfriend...

B: I tend to overindulge in FRIENDS. I’ve most probably seen every episode countless times but that doesn’t stop me from re-watching them if they’re ever on TV.

What's the worst lie you've ever told?

L: When I was at school, I once threw a plastic bottle and accidentally broke a light! I said it wasn’t me and thankfully nobody grassed me up.
 

B: Not to sound like a goody-two-shoes but I’m really, really bad at lying so as a general rule of thumb I never do! I probably told a few porkies when I was younger, blaming my brother for things that I’d done but other than that I can’t think of anything 😇

What's your favourite piece of StrawberryToo work so far?

L: There’s quite a few I like but the ones that I really like are Artwaves, Venture Seafoods and White Rabbit Chocolatiers.

B: It’s hard to pick just one! Either Zachary’s Ice Cream or Artwaves - I like the bright and bold colours in both of these pieces of work.

What's the most embarrassing thing you've ever posted online?

L: This isn’t something I posted but a friend once posted a video of me falling off my BMX at a skatepark back when I was about 13. It was a pretty pathetic attempt…
 

B: Timehop frequently reminds me of all the embarrassing things I posted circa 2010. I was a bit of an emo when I was younger so seeing song lyrics and old photos that I’d posted back then is always a bit cringey!

Welcome to the team!
