Hey! Who's that over there? That would be Ala Kowalczyk who joins the Thompson creative team as a Senior Designer. She brings with her a stellar portfolio, a load of agency experience, and a dog named Lando (no Star Wars connection). Let's find out more...
Describe your first few weeks at Thompson (in no longer than a Tweet!)
The very first thing that happened to me was a lovely dog called Frank jumping on my lap. Things only got better from there, between tasty lunches, informative inductions and lovely chats I found that the more I learned about the company the happier I am to be a part of it!
What interested you most about working at Thompson?
Firstly, it was the purpose and the brands Thompson is working with. Secondly the evidence and research-based nature of the work – something I believe is essential to createmeaningful and beautiful brand identities.
Any surprises so far with your new role?
The amount of talent and skill that can be packed into such a small team!
What has been your favourite part of being here so far?
Aside from working with great clients, it’s all the lovely and talented people I get to work with (and the tasty lunches).
Outside of work, what do you like doing?
If I’m not out walking with the dog, you can usually find me enjoying some live music or reading. I occasionally get creative and paint or get busy with a DIY project.
What’s your secret superpower? (Or just superpower, even if it’s not a secret)
I’m some sort of a Keynote wiz, but I don’t like to brag about that one.
