Meet Fore Digital's new designer, Kim Campbell

 27th Sep 2018

Our featured employer Fore Digital have been on a roll lately with an ever-growing team of first-class talent.  This week they welcomed Designer Kim Campbell to the team, so we caught up with her to find out about her background and upcoming projects.

Tell us about your background, and how you came to work for Fore?

I was invited to join Fore by creative director Stuart Lonsdale, who I previously worked with at Equator. Before joining the team I worked on Equators PR & social media team, and towards the end of my time there, the UX team.

Before I joined Equator I was enrolled in a Graphic Design course at City of Glasgow College (which, to be honest I only joined because their illustration course was full) and prior to that I was studying photography at Dundee College.

I wasn't quite sure what kind of career I wanted, so I tried out quite a few creative endeavours that didn't end well before became a designer. *cough* wedding photography *cough*

 

What does your role in the business entail?

I'll mostly be working with the design team on developing & designing social campaigns, but I'm a multidisciplinary designer, so I'll also be involved in other bits and pieces that come into the studio too.

 

What got you excited about working for the brand?

I liked the direction Fore are taking their brand in, and I was impressed by some of the projects they had pulled off with a relatively small team!
I liked the idea of working in a studio with fewer people, as I think it allows you to be more hands-on and get involved in other aspects of the business out-with your speciality, which seems to happen less in larger agencies. 

I was also excited to be working on social campaigns again, as I enjoy seeing things go live & being able to measure immediate results, which is something I feel you don't get when you're working on larger web projects, which I had been doing before I joined Fore.

 

Can you tell us about any projects you're going to be working on?

I could tell you, but I'd have to kill you...

I can say that I'll be working on a lot of exciting social campaigns, and I’ll be getting involved with some AR & VR projects.

 

What's your favourite thing about the industry?

That I get money for making cool stuff, and that everything is always changing. I think digital advertising and marketing is so fast paced that it puts people on even footing because we're all always constantly learning, which is really nice.

 

What do you like to do when you're not at the office?

I draw, make GIFs and take care of my sims. I also like to make plenty for time for friends, family, eating and sleeping.
