2016 has been generous in three respects:
- Celebrity deaths
- Stressed out politicians
- Newbies in our offices
So many newbies, in fact, that we left it too long to introduce some of them and they’re not really newbies anymore. That’s our bad.
Regardless of our tardiness, here’s who climbed on board in the last few months. We’re just getting them in before the next lot arrive.
Iain, Graduate Client Partner
After graduating in the summer from Edinburgh Napier University, I had no idea what I wanted to do other than be involved in advertising in some way, and I was lucky enough to be noticed by Everything Different. Outside of work, I have the pleasure of being involved in organised violence every Saturday with rugby and have been playing for 18 years now, and I have no intention of slowing down anytime soon.
Declan Metcalfe, Head of Platforms and Experiences
I work within Different Story and my key role is designing user experiences for digital platforms. That includes how visitors interact with and use websites, apps and any other technology designed to add value to a customer experience or online process. As to how I came to be at Different Story I arrived here pulled on a cart by 103 unicorns.
Lisa Cooney, Senior Client Partner
Two important things about me: I love to work in advertising and I want to see the world. I talk too much and laugh too loud (probably) and I love a glass of wine.
Rachel Ramsey, Client Partner, Research and Insight
I joined Differentology straight after finishing my PhD in cognitive linguistics, hoping to use my research skills in The Real World. I love research, data, network theory, making tabbouleh and banana bread, and eBay. My life goal is to have free reign of the Tesco Clubcard database. Failing that, I’d love to travel to Japan and New Zealand.
Ryan Errington, Designer
I’m ambitious and a bit of a dreamer. I came to Different from another design job a few months ago. In real life, when I’m not designing his face off at Different, I’m pretty active and sporty. If you wondered.
Vlad Caciula, Graduate Client Partner, Research and Insight
With my passion for data and market research, and my mad Excel skills, I was able to impress the people at D.fferento/ogy enough to be given a place in the team. Being a recent graduate, working on almost the entire market research process is very exciting. When I’m not at work, I enjoy playing video games and using data to predict my chances of winning, but I also love music and I play the drums from time to time.
Rachel Denton, Graduate Client Partner
I recently graduated from Newcastle University, where I studied Business Management. I’m really enjoying being a part of the Different team, everyone is so lovely and I’m learning so much each day. Working alongside such passionate and talented people make it an exciting inspiring place to work. I couldn’t ask for a better beginning to my career in marketing and advertising. I’m always up for an adventure, experiencing new things and seeing new places.
Rebecca Marley, Graduate Client Partner
I am freshly graduated and ready to take on the next phase of life head on; My Career.
With a degree from Northumbria in Business and Marketing and a passion for advertising I couldn’t be happier with my first role as Graduate Client Partner here at Different.
When I am not busy building my career you will find me in the gym, Osborne Road, or the sofa watching a decent crime drama. In the future I hope to have travelled the planet, own a dog and be an advertising guru!
Emma Clark, Head of Content Strategy
I’ve worked in marketing since 1998 and became a content strategist in 2000, although it was a while before anyone came up with a label for my role. I’ve worked in charities, non-profits, a FTSE 100 company and agency-side and, regardless of the business, love understanding how to connect communications to customers’ needs. When I’m not working, you can find me scuba diving or planning my next trip to a remote part of the world.
