Q&A with Laurie Edmondson : Graphic Designer
This week our team spotlight shines on our exceptionally talented designer Laurie Edmondson.
Laurie joined Lustalux in the summer of 2017 our new graphic designer to support the growth of our signage and graphics department after being in design for over 3 years.
How did you get involved in the industry?
During my final year of university, I was working at a design studio part-time, balancing my studies with studio work. Once I’d completed my degree in Graphic Design & Photography I was offered a full-time role at the design studio I’d been working for during that year. When I joined Lustalux a year later I had the opportunity to really expand my knowledge and experience of the industry as I got to grips with new software, printing & production processes, and new products & services.
What does your role entail?
My role has developed a lot since I first joined Lustalux. I’m primarily the Graphic Designer, so my job is to communicate with clients, design artwork, and set up approved projects for print & production. But soon after joining the team I took over managing the social media pages as well (mainly Instagram) along with my fellow Social Media team, where I’m responsible for designing promotional posts, testimonials, announcements etc, as well as formulating our Instagram posts to keep our followers up-to-date with our ongoing projects & behind the scenes action.
What do you enjoy about your job?
The team. Being part of a team that’s enthusiastic, friendly & funny is what makes me love coming into work. When we say ‘the Lustalux family’, it’s meant in the truest sense. And of course the creative projects! When we get projects through that really allow me to be open and creative with the artwork, that’s what makes my job even more enjoyable.
On behalf of all the team at Lustalux, we’d like to say a big thank you to Laurie for skill and dedication to her job.
