LEANNE West, a cheerful, confident people-person has been busy working on recruitment campaigns, getting stunned by Prime Ministers and also being the college’s photographer.
‘My job title is Lead Creative, but my role is very varied which I love. I manage the social media, which is Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and I upload to those every day.’ Leanne said.
She added: ‘Every day is different, that’s why I love it. I could be working on brochure design, the next day I could be working on a six-week project and suddenly I’m taking pictures of David Cameron and Ed Miliband.
‘Recently I worked on a recruitment campaign, photographing and interviewing alumni. I then worked closely with an illustrator ex BA (Hons) Graphic Design student from UCH, where we designed a section of the Harlow College website, banners and buttons for social media, bus adverts and bus shelter adverts.’
Leanne added, ‘I love it when I am in a room when initial ideas are being discussed; I like being involved in every stage and see it develop over all stages.
‘There are always challenges and within Graphic Design there are always lots of opinions but it makes me work harder and try to rise to the challenge.’
She added: ‘In my free time I do photography, such as weddings, family and baby photoshoots. I love it! I am a family person, so I spend a lot of time with family and friends.
‘If I could interview anyone it would be Stacey Dooley, I just absolutely love her!’
