Our Designer, Matt Russell, recently celebrated his five-year anniversary at RED! He looks back on his highlights from the past half-decade.
When did you start working at RED?
I joined RED in April 2016. I joined after working for a couple of smaller local marketing and design agencies.
How has your skillset developed?
I started as a graphic designer, but soon got my teeth into digital projects. My role now includes website design, UI/UX, WordPress, animations and online content marketing platforms. I have also developed in terms of building client relationships and project management, and more recently, have taken on more of a studio manager role.
How have you changed as a person working at RED?
I have developed both personally and professionally. After being at RED for two years, my girlfriend and I purchased our first home together. During this time, I became more independent and confident, which was also reflected in my day-to-day responsibilities.
Being at RED is just like helping out friends, rather than ‘work’. I enjoy being in an environment where I feel like if I have a suggestion, it will be listened to, and will help to improve the business. This is a great environment in which to build your confidence and develop your skills.
What has been your highlight so far?
I have really enjoyed expanding RED’s website portfolio and developing strong working relationships with our local clients. Helping some companies start up and establish everything from the very beginning – and continuing to work with them years later – has been really satisfying.
What is the best thing about working at RED?
The people and that no two days are the same. One day I could be working on a website project, the next an international brand campaign.
What’s next for you at RED? What would you like achieve?
In the near future, I will continue to develop RED’s digital capabilities and the ongoing enhancement of our digital and design portfolio. In the main however, I am looking to keep delivering high-quality content to our clients.
