The creative team at NetConstruct took on its newest member last when Rorie McIntosh joined us. Below is his brief summary of his whirlwind week one:-

#NetLife Week One

Hi, my name is Rorie and I've recently joined the creative team at NetConstruct as a Digital Designer.

After living abroad and starting a new family we decided to take the plunge and move back to the UK. Having grown up in the North East of England, we decided to be based there surrounded by the moors, dales and beautiful coast line—not to mention the lovely Yorkshire folk!

Opting to dive back into full-time employment wasn't an easy choice, especially after being freelance and running my own business, but the decision was made easier after meeting the friendly crew who worked at NetConstruct.

My background as a graphic designer consists of both print and digital design, focusing mainly on User Experience (UX) and responsive web design over the past four years. I was excited to be part of a dynamic team who excel in high web standards, usability and development. I jumped at the chance to join the team after my initial interviews with Darren and Steve, who head up the Creative and Operations teams respectively.

One week in and I’m happy to report that I’ve been welcomed onboard with open arms (and a free supply of fruit)! This first week has seen me getting up to speed with the design/dev team and their process, writing up creative ideas for a new proposal, working through some wireframes in Axure and attending team meetings for new projects. But it hasn’t been all work and no play! The lunch time Table Tennis league is a good opportunity to work on the hand/eye coordination and get the blood flowing! Clearly I’ve got some work to do… these guys are good!

What a great start to my new job. I’m looking forward to getting stuck into projects for new and existing clients and working with and learning from a talented bunch of wonderful people. The atmosphere here in the Wetherby office is relaxed and friendly, and the quality of work is second-to-none… You can’t ask for more than that!
