JO. YO.

Hello Monday, we meet again.

This week we're introducing our Graphic Designer, Jo Atkinson, who has a rather weird love for banana, beans AND cheese on toast (we're not kidding, it's true)...

Keep reading to find out more about Jo.

Q: Hello Jo! So, easy question first - what's a typical day in the office for you?

A: A wee cuppa, a catch up with the guys and then delving into whatever jobs need done. I love the bigger branding jobs as we all collaborate together to come up with loads of ideas - plus, I love a good moodboard. 

 

Q: The tea was to be expected, you lot are a bunch of tea jenny's (for those who don't know in Scotland it means a person who drinks a lot of tea; a tea addict; someone fussy about tea). Since we are well away from summer now, what's your favourite thing to do in autumn?

A: Getting wrapped up and heading out to the park to photograph all the amazing autumnal colours.

 

Q: Tell me, if there was a movie made about your life - what genre would it be?

A: Definitely a comedy - I have a 4-year-old and an almost 1-year-old so life is always full of laughter, fun and a bit of craziness! 

 

Q: Definitely! So can you tell me if you have any weird quirks?

A: I enjoy mixing random food together. For example, one of my favourite lunches is banana, beans and cheese on toast! 

Don't knock it 'till you've tried it.

 

Q: Wow. Ok...MOVING ON. Any addictions?

A: COLOUR. I'm obsessed with it, as you can see here. I'm like a magpie when I see anything bright and I'm always taking the most random pictures. The bolder the better!

 

Q: Any bucket list items?

A: To see more of the world, this includes returning to Japan and taking my two wee girls along. I travelled there a few years ago and it was phenomenal. The colours, the signage, the icons everywhere... it's a designers dream and oh so inspirational! 

I'd also love to see the Northern Lights in Scandinavia during winter. 

 

Q: They sound like good trips! Speaking of family, what sitcom family would you be a member of? 

A: The Bluth family from Arrested Development. They're all slightly wacky and have their own wee quirks which are hilarious. I've watched the four original seasons of the show countless times. 

 

Q: And if you were a vegetable, what would you be? 

A: A pepper - they're colourful and versatile! 

 

Q: Good answer! Tell me, what's your favourite thing about BB?

A: Having the opportunity to work on a range of creative, innovative and exciting briefs - and of course the lovely team. 

 

Q: You'll be glad to know this is the last question - describe yourself in three words.

A: Oh that's a tricky one...

Creative, Thoughtful, Fun

 


So, banana, beans and cheese on toast - anyone ever tried it or is it making you queasy at the thought?

As always, we hope we've brightened your Monday, or at least made you wonder about people's strange food habits! 

You know the score, pop back next week - you'll be meeting our leading lion (confused? Come back next week and see what we mean).

Until then, 

BBx
