Celebrating International Women's Day!
8 March 2018
Today is International Womens Day and this year the date is especially important as it falls 100 years since women began to gain the right to vote! To celebrate this, we would like to pay tribute to the women of Paragon by taking a look at the roles of some of our female team members. We asked three members of the team the same question,
‘What inspires you about working in the creative industry?, here's what they said…
Lilly Northrop – Systems Manager
Lilly has worked for Paragon Creative in numerous roles for around 3 years and is now the Systems Manager. Lillys role involves working with our Design and Interactive teams to implement new working systems and processes, including the role out of our Design Document Management System.
‘For me its the people and the range of talent under one roof. The incredible talent we have from the Sales team right through to our installation teams and everything between working together to deliver the variety of projects we do is amazing. To see something on a piece of paper appear before your eyes makes you view the world in a new way when you know just how possible it is to bring imagination to life.
Mia Donockley – Graphic Designer
Mia has worked for the company for almost 2 years as a Graphic Designer. Mias role involves producing design work for internal & external marketing, external clients, and coordinating print/production of large scale graphics which are completely unique to every project.
‘Seeing my creative design work out in the real world and people interacting with it feels really satisfying. Also, the people working in the creative industry tend to be just that bit more ‘out there and like-minded - I like that!
Eleanor Oxberry-Breakwell – Project Manager
Eleanor has worked with the company for around 18 months as a Project Manager and has travelled with the company a lot since she started. Eleanor works to capture client requirements, defining scope, design management, estimating and managing job costs, agreeing a contract, and undertaking contract administration.
‘No two days are ever the same, due to the nature of our business being predominantly bespoke, this means every day is a school day and Im continually learning more about our processes, products and finishes. Coupled with the varying client base we work with, it allows for continual development and learning opportunities. We have a great team of professionals at Paragon, who make working here a joy. Im looking forward to the growth and potential changes the future will hold.
