Tell us a little bit about your role at hundo?
As a content creator and Graphic designer, I mainly create video content for Instagram and TikTok exploring topics like digital fashion, esports, gaming, and music within web3 and the metaverse. Through the content I create, I hope to educate people about how the future of work and learning will change. I also enjoy making trending videos on TikTok and creating videos with the team.
Additionally, I design and create assets and graphics for hundo's marketing and sales team, including email banners, social media assets and presentation decks using Canva and Figma.
What are the most important skills and qualities for success in your job?
You must enjoy socialising and making new friends, as well as communicating clearly between team members, so there are no misunderstandings. You should also be able to communicate with your social media followers and build relationships with them.
In addition, you need to be a fast learner and able to adapt to different tools and software. For instance, TikTok and software for video editing like CapCut. As well as being able to use graphic design software like Figma, you can create a wide variety of designs and animations and improve your graphic design skills.
What does a typical working day look like for you?
I normally plan, create and edit videos for our social media channels at Hundo. My video includes researching topics and themes, choosing the video I want to create, writing scripts, finding footage, recording it, and editing it. I do voice recordings most of the time to explain topics or show tutorials to our viewers, as well as any ad-hoc work for the team, such as design work for emails, presentations, or graphic assets.
What's the most rewarding aspect of your job, and why?
Being able to inspire people and make people happy and laugh through the content that I make. Just knowing that I can inspire people is humbling.
How do you manage your full-time job and your freelancing work?
In general, I try to do most of my creative work outside of working hours and on weekends.
What themes do you explore in your artwork?
My artwork explores a variety of different topics, but the following are just a few of the things I've done in the past:
How do you think young creatives can be better supported?
Youth creatives can be better supported in many ways, but the most important is to provide them with career opportunities within their field.
What advice would you give to someone just starting out in your field or who wants to start freelance designing?
There are a number of things, but I would most definitely say that these are my top tips:
✨Always stay true to yourself
✨Don’t change for anyone
✨Make sure you do what you love
✨Make sure you know your worth and don’t let people try to make you feel you’re not worthy
✨Never settle that causes you to compromise on things
✨Always do things with joy and enjoy what you do no matter what it is
What's the most interesting or memorable event you've attended for work?
As part of my work trips, I have attended several memorable events such as The Shard, Lichfield School, Retail Week, and Leeds Digital Festival. Also included are team days out, like the time spent at OtherWorld in Victoria and Fair Game in Canary Wharf by the team. I've had a great time at all of them, and I look forward to attending more.
What's your favourite work-related meme or inside joke that always makes you laugh?
For me, it was what time every time showed up to the team breakfast because it starts at 9 am but you know what the London commute is like!
What's the coolest piece of technology or equipment you’ve used at work?
For me, I would say that it was most definitely the Meta Quest 2 headset and playing Beat Saber, Epic Roller Coasters, and even experiencing Youtube in VR for the first time, which was fun.
