Due to recent expansion, a number of key changes have taken place at Stuff in the last few months. One of which is the hiring of our new Account Coordinator, Katrina Teobald. We’ve taken the time to sit down with Katrina and ask her some questions to find out a little bit about her.
What have you enjoyed most so far at Stuff?
Getting to know about the variety of clients we have. I love how each client, sector and project has different challenges and end goals. That’s what I like about this industry, there is always more to learn and more challenges to find a solution for.
What or who inspires you?
Everyday people inspire me. I like listening to others’ stories, backgrounds and lives.
What do you like doing in your spare time?
I’m someone who likes to keep busy. I practice yoga daily, but also like baking. I suppose you could say the two balance each other out. I’m a huge reader, from the classics to the more contemporary, I can spend a whole day just reading. I’m also a bit of a maths geek and can sometimes be found with a complicated Sudoko puzzle in my hand.
What are your favourite brands/ campaigns?
In terms of brands, I love the clothing from Spanish company Desigual. The colours and designs used are so different. The name ‘Desigual’ roughly translates as ‘uneven’ or ‘unequal’, which I feel fits perfectly with the designs.
Campaign-wise, I was really struck by National Geographic’s Missing Cat campaign. A massive missing cat poster was created, similar in format to an average missing animal poster, but in this case, a lion named Archie was front and centre. The artwork was then placed on the floor in cities and was designed so that members of the public would unknowingly rub the poster out with their feet whilst walking. This additional element served as a reminder that humans have played a role in the decline of big cats. The campaign stands out to me as it highlights a major issue in a manner that hasn’t been used before – the interactive nature intrigues whilst still creating a poignant message.
What 3 words would your friends and family use to describe you?
Hardworking, resilient and caring.
What would be your personal motto?
Be kind to yourself. In today’s driven world, people can be very harsh towards themselves. Occasionally we just need a little reminder to lighten up and relax a little. Sometimes our best thoughts come to us when we are relaxed and calm.
What are you looking forward to doing at Stuff?
Just getting stuck in and helping wherever I can. I’m a big one for teamwork and enjoy supporting others, particularly when I can see a great end result.
