What was your journey to Arekibo?
Many years ago I graduated in Multimedia Arts, Interaction Design in Lithuania. After a short period of time working at a digital agency, I decided to move to Ireland where I spent the next ten years mainly working in print. But my heart was always gravitating toward digital human-interaction and design, and I knew that I wanted to return back to working in that space full time. I wanted to work for a well-established and well respected company in the city centre, and after stepping up my knowledge and skills with some practice and diploma programmes, here I am in the most beautiful Dublin district, a stylish office, and surrounded by so many creative talents at Arekibo.
One thing most people don't know about you?
I can't dance or sing, in fact I’m pretty terrible at both.
What are 3 things you have learned during your time in Arekibo?
- Time is tight
- How to be most productive under timeline pressure
- Working remotely is possible
What is one thing you can't work without?
A high resolution display.
What's your favourite thing about your job?
Working with very creative people, where everyone is pushing to the highest limits in every way possible while always keeping our clients as our top priority. Arekibo is among the top choices for Ireland’s largest companies and authorities, and I'm very happy to be working with such large brands.
I also love the culture in Arekibo and its surroundings.
What is one skill you've gained since joining?
I've learned to work remotely in a productive and efficient way.
Apple or Android?
Android as i've used it for years but i'm tempted to switch to Apple because of their amazing photo capabilities.
I have 2: What doesn't kill you makes you stronger and if it's not now, it's not the time!
