WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT
WORKING WITH A.LONDON?
"There's never a dull moment working within the A.LONDON team. With a variety of private clients and show homes you are sure to never have the same kind of job to work on. The ability for us to be creative and innovative is encouraged with a large amount of flexibility which comes from the top. We are never restricted from flourishing a new idea, something that enables us to stand out from the rest.
We not only have fun with the projects we work on but also in the office. Our team morale is always on a high, if things get too much, you can rely on any member of the team to step in and help, no matter
what the job is."
WHO IS YOUR CURRENT INSTA OBSESSION?
"My current Insta obsession is @lizachloe. She's a freelance art director and creative entrepreneur. She makes her Instagram really creative and draws all over her pictures. The images themselves are really colourful and cool but she then draws over them and turns them into artwork, personalising them a bit."
WHAT IS THE ONE QUOTE YOU LIVE BY?
"Nobody ever made a difference by
being like somebody else."
"It's important to look for inspiration elsewhere, not just at designers. We have to look outside the box so nothing is ever the same because its easy to make something similar."
TALK US THROUGH A DAY IN THE LIFE OF YOU AS A DESIGNER IN THE A.LONDON STUDIO.
"When beginning a project, I start with a presentation outlining the client's brief and concept to get a full understanding of how we can deliver a project to suit our client to the best ability. This is followed by researching on Pinterest for fabrics and inspiration towards a colour scheme or theme which can sometimes take lead in the overall design. After this has been worked out, I then carefully select furniture pieces suited to my chosen concept.
As well as designing in the studio, I am also part of an Instagram team which manages the A.LONDON Instagram."
FINALLY, WHAT IS YOUR TOP TIP FOR DESIGNERS OUT THERE THAT WANT TO JOIN THE TEAM?
"My top tip would be to have the desire and drive to produce beautiful, memorable and powerful interiors with clear understanding of your clients’ desires and lifestyle and exceeding their expectation.
With team members starting out as graduates who have now flourished to become directors, here at A.LONDON we like to encourage and offer career development to those who join the team, and that's something we're proud of."
