Taking inspiration from Vogue, we've decided to let our users get to know some of the staff here at Ecanvasser a little better with a quickfire interview. It's not 73 questions but she's a busy lady so 15 will have to do. Introducing our resident graphic designer and proud Italian export Paola DiGiorgio.
Q. We'll keep it pretty simple to start, how did you get interested in graphic design?
For as long as I can remember my dream job was creating cartoons. I was fortunate to begin working at a web agency in my earlier years and that has led me down a similar route.
Q. If you weren't into graphic design what kind of career would you be doing?
As I mentioned before, becoming an animator has always been my dream, but my other two big passions are music and animals. I'd probably be a musician (when I was younger I played bass guitar) or perhaps a career working with animals.
