In honour of Employee Appreciation Day we asked our Art Director Dawnice Williams to answer 20 burning questions.

  1. How many years have you been a graphic designer? I have been a designer for 8 years. I was hired by P&P as a designer, then became senior designer, and now I am an Art Director.

  1. Favourite aspect of your job? Developing a brand’s new visual identity

  1. What is the best thing about working agency-side? I think the atmosphere is much more collaborative and creative. Also, I love that every day is different.

  1. How has being in an agency contributed to professional growth?Because each client could ask for something different, it opens up the opportunity for me to learn new skills. In the past 2 years I have taught myself website design and video storyboarding.

  1. Serif or sans serif? Sans, but serifs are making a comeback, so….

  1. How did your job change after the pandemic? Working from home meant we had to make a more concerted effort to teamwork, and also the type of work we were doing at the agency shifted somewhat. For example, we had an increase in demand for video design and graphics or presentations for our clients’ Zoom meetings.
