When did you first start with Quadrant2Design?

I joined Quadrant2Design in August 2014 as a graduate with a couple of years of experience in the industry.

My background is in industrial design, product design and graphic design.

Before joining Quadrant2Design I worked in Kitchen Design and also spent a year working for Disney as a product development intern, which was a fantastic experience!

I always knew I wanted to go into a design career that blended 3D design and graphic design, and Quadrant2Design provided the perfect opportunity.

What is it like working at Quadrant2Design?

At Quadrant2Design every day is different. There is always a new challenge or opportunity and every member of the team is able to make a meaningful contribution to the success and growth of the business.

The culture is open and honest; everyone works in an open-plan office with each team working together and appreciating the contributions of every other team to a project.

There are a lot of jokes and interesting conversations in the office. We don’t take ourselves too seriously but we take the work very seriously.
