“I feel very fortunate to work within the environmental, cultural and heritage sectors. It is incredibly rewarding to learn about flora, fauna, environmental diversity and the history and culture of our Indigenous and European peoples and to then transform the content into a design that is visually engaging to other people. I love working at Arterial because our collaborative processes and dynamic teamwork allows me to watch an idea evolve through the design processes. It is amazing to watch an idea transformed into a physical form.”
