Day in the Life: Ruth

Ruth and Dave boxing.

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, Ruth tells us about a typical day as a designer.

Hello, I’m Ruth and I’m one of the three designers here at Magpie. I specialise in digital design and work closely with all our developers to create wireframes, user journeys and cutting-edge designs to bring our websites to life.

I also collaborate with my fellow designers on anything from 3D Christmas cards, creative packaging design and print for a range of student campaigns!

 

 

 

You’re most likely to find me…

With my favourite fine liner and layout pad sketching anything from wireframes, logo designs, editorial layouts or animation storyboards. My best ideas always start life as a sketch or a scribble…

The best part of my day is…

My 11am crisp break (just kidding)! I love bringing my work to life, whether it’s creating a three-second gif or a two-minute animation.

Not your usual day in the office…

Strapping some boxing gloves on and having a spar with our very own digital Dave!
