Whether we’re brainstorming our next big idea, conducting on the ground research for a new project, or visiting our clients – it’s never a dull day at Magpie. Today, Flynn tells us about a typical day as a member of the Ideas & Imagination Team.

Hi i’m Flynn, I work alongside the Ideas & Imagination team to provide a unique insight into the student market to inform Magpie’s designs and campaigns. As a graphic design student I also work with the design team to bring these ideas to life through design, illustration and layout.

You’re most likely to find me…

You’re most likely to find me traveling around Leeds, raising awareness and informing the public on our latest campaigns. Recently that was involved giving out pharmacy themed Pick ‘n’ Mix, collecting pledges against antibiotic resistance and conducting market research. If I’m not on the road, you’ll find me in the studio working on sketches or designs for clients.


The best part of my day is…

The best part of my day is the middle when I’m half way through through bringing it to life! I love turning an ideas into a tangible thing, and it’s this stage that I can most immerse in and am most interested in.

Not your usual day in the office…
Everything’s always changing so there’s definitely no usual day! The unique parts of each day drive the design and its purpose, making it new and exciting.
