I am sure some of you saw the current controversies around Brisbane Roar currently in the news. The club is dieing, the owners are pulling out, and the staff are getting shafted along with creditors and all kinds.
I was the creative director before it all started crashing and in that time I bought in a junior creative, Lucy Porter.
When Lucy came in I was blown away with the level of composure she showed, and the choice became an easy one. We appointed her as a Junior Designer at Brisbane Roar a couple of years ago now.
A whole separate story is why I am no longer at the club. So without going into detail, I feel somewhat indebted to Lucy in that I hired her and that is the reason why she is now in a situation where the company she works for is falling apart. I'd love to make sure she finds a job worthy of her attention, and I think quite a few of you here could use a very solid person and designer.
Her written English is exceptional, which having gone through all the resumes and portfolios at the time, I can tell you is a bloody rarity!
Her fundamentals are solid, which is also rare because IMO there are some significant areas which aren't addressed in design study in QLD. Anything she didn't have we went through when she arrived.
As I mentioned, she is composed and cool under pressure. Given the crap that is going down at Brisbane Roar, I can vouch that she deals with stress very well too.
I really want to see her given an opportunity to develop in a design company or somewhere with an in-house design department. If you know of anything you're welcome to contact me as a reference - firstname.lastname@example.org or you can contact Lucy at email@example.com
If you are thinking of going through the effort of recruiting, I already did it for you =P
I appreciate there is also a job board, but the Brisbane component of it is always pretty quiet, whereas I know a lot of the Brisbane folk like to chat on here.
If any of you know of any suitable jobs going for someone going on mid level designer who has an awesome temperament and attitude let me know! I'll also be contacting other parts of my network too =)
