July was clearly a busy month for us, as we’re over the moon to have welcomed not one, but two new members into the Root Fifty-Two team. A huge hello to our new Graphic Designer, Molly – and our new Copywriter, Izzy!
Both Molly and Izzy have got stuck into their new roles and have quickly become valuable assets to our creative team; meeting with internal and external clients, sharing ideas and producing great content.
Molly, from Blackburn, first got into professional Graphic Design when she began a creative apprenticeship creating catalogues for household cleaning products. Since then she’s gained five years’ worth of experience working within the design industry, creating exciting branding projects, website designs, and social media campaigns. Molly will be working closely with our Creative Lead, Michael, to produce creative solutions to web and print content.
“I remember realising I could make my hobby into a career back when I was at school, and I knew that Graphic Design was what I wanted to do,” says Molly “I’ve always enjoyed creating content for social media, and I love that you can get creative inspiration from anywhere, including Instagram and TikTok”
“I’ve had an amazing first month at Root Fifty-Two, working on everything from signage to website designs. Everyone has made me feel so welcome and the new office space is a great place to collaborate and work. Who wouldn’t love getting to eat their lunch overlooking the canal?!”
Meanwhile, Izzy, originally from Hull, moved to Burnley just a couple of weeks ago to live closer to her partner – and appears to be settling in well. Having always loved expressing herself through the written word, she achieved a First Class degree in English Language and Linguistics from York St. John University and is now studying for an MSc in Digital Marketing and Data Analytics in her free time.
“I’ve always loved writing and being creative, so this role felt like a perfect fit for me,” says Izzy “I’ve dabbled in freelance copywriting previously and always really enjoyed it. In my spare time, I create content for Instagram and YouTube, so it’s fantastic to be able to combine two of my passions and write creatively for a career!”
“The best thing about my role so far is getting to work with such a great team of fellow creatives and getting to meet our clients, as it’s really rewarding getting to create meaningful work for them,”
“Molly and I have had some great trips out to meet our clients, including Fagan & Whalley, with our Director, Kimberley, and it’s been great to get out and learn more about businesses within the local area. I’ve particularly loved writing blogs and newsletters for our clients, and I’m excited to get stuck into the role even further!”
“Molly and Izzy have been a great addition to Root Fifty-Two, and we look forward to watching their futures unfold here. They have both slotted into our team brilliantly, and we’re delighted to have them both on board,” says Kimberley Thompson, Root Fifty-Two Director.
