Some may have noticed that we have a wonderful new addition to Team Air Social. This week we are getting to know our Creative Director, Amy Derrington, a little better.
Tell us a little bit about yourself
“I have always been creative. From a young age, I always had a paintbrush in my hand! I studied at art college after school and then went on to get a degree in Visual Communication at Loughborough University. I have now worked professionally for multiple international agencies for over 12 years and progressed through the ranks from Junior designer right up to Creative Director.”
What inspires you to be creative?
“Everything around me inspires me, especially travel. I have been lucky enough to live and work internationally, which has opened my mind to new design styles, trends and cultures. I also love to visit design exhibitions and design markets for a boost of creative inspiration.
What do you enjoy most about design?
“I have always enjoyed branding and identity briefs, especially for innovative startups. It’s fascinating finding out the story behind a business, working with passionate entrepreneurs and ultimately creating a ‘new face’ for a business. I get a buzz from seeing the impact of a strong brand working and what it can bring to a business and also seeing my work out there in the big wide world!
“I also have a passion for interior design and love to use my creativity to transform a room. Currently, I am sprucing up the new office at Air Social which will soon be ready to welcome you this month… watch this space!”
What do you like to do out of work?
“I have always been a fitness fanatic and outdoorsy. I love to run, ski, surf and play team sports. Aside from sport, I had recently discovered the joy of painting in my small studio, which I did a lot before I became a designer.”
With only a couple of months at Air Social under her belt, Amy has already wowed us with her creative skills. Her focus and can-do attitude make her a valued member of Team Air Social and we are looking forward to seeing what she will create moving forward.
