It is time for our next edition of Meet the team Monday (I know – you were all waiting with bated breath!).
Next up in the hot-seat is a wonderfully creative, graphic designer, Nicky Proniewicz – from logos to websites he does it all.
Over to Nicky….
What do you do day to day basis at One Little Bird?
I mainly work on websites and do any graphic design work required for any of our clients.
What made you want to join OLB?
I loved that it was a thriving, local, forward thinking team and an all-round exciting place to work – how could I not want to work here?!
What are the sorts of things were you doing before you joined OLB?
I was working for Newsquest Cumbria producing print and online adverts, booklets and event material.
What clients do you work on?
Look & Cover
Beech House Holidays
That is a snapshot of my work right now but I dip into many of our client projects depending on what’s required.
Your proudest OLB moment to date?
Getting the sign off on our first website.
Your favourite thing about working in Cumbria?
In Cockermouth particularly, we’re less than 20 minutes from the sea, lakes, mountains, 3 towns, and a whole host of exciting places to eat and visit.
Now for the serious stuff…
The best holiday you’ve ever been on?
A camping holiday touring around the South of France when the total eclipse was on.
What would be your Desert Island Dish (one dish you could request if you were stuck on a desert island)?
A Yorkshire pudding big enough to use as a boat, and a bucket of gravy while we’re at it. Then there’d be the decision on whether to eat the boat sized Yorkshire, or attempt to sail off into the big blue never knowing the wonders of eating the boat sized Yorkshire Pudding.
Any hidden talents?
They wouldn’t be hidden if I told you.
If you could be any bird, what would you be?
Initially i thought i’d choose an eagle or something generic like that, but then the thought of eating raw dead animals put me off. So then I thought about ducks on a duckpond who at least get to eat lots of bread. So, a really fancy looking duck.
If there was a song that epitomised you, which would it be?
Your favourite alcoholic beverage?
Currently I have a real love for Hobgoblin Gold by Wychwood Brewery.
Your go to karaoke song?
I don’t do karaoke.
The best (or worst!) joke you know.
What’s the difference between a camera and a sock?
One takes photos, one takes five toes.
If you could tell your younger self something you knew now, what would it be?
Just say it.
Marmite – love or hate?
Best Christmas song of all time?
Only You – Flying Pickets.
Any of the first three or four books in the Horus Heresy series and Galaxy in Flames by Ben Counter.
The first record/tape/cd you ever bought?
Use Your Illusion 2 – Guns & Roses.
Your favourite quote/phrase?
I don’t have one.
The one film you could watch again and again?
Back To The Future.
Best board game ever created?
Cosmic Encounter – I’ll fight anyone who says otherwise.
A tv series you couldn’t get enough of?
Your childhood crush?
Oh God….I remember having a photo of Demi Moore blue-tacked on my wall at far too young of an age.
Irregularity – you did say weird.
And the most important question of all. Which would you prefer to fight – horse sized duck or 100 duck sized horses?
100 duck sized horses – I’m not a madman!
