Design Inspo Alert! 🚨🚨🚨

💭 Imagine it’s the year 3000 and all the annoying experiences of bad design are a distant memory, long been fixed by designers of old…

Happy birthday to our Chief Dog Officer, Baxter! 🐕🎉
We've asked the team to share the reasons why they love him so much 🥰

⏰ George - The fact that he's made it 14 years old has got to be my most favourite thing about Baxter. And how he's like my own personal alarm clock. He actually tells me when it's time to get the kids from school!
🐶 Andy - Baxter (my loyal sidekick) shares my morning routine with me. First he wakes up to my 5am alarm and has a little cutch in bed. Then he joins me on the sofa and lies by my side, as I plan my day and enjoy a morning brew.
🥥 Olivia - The way he looks like a coconut
🤗 Annie - The way he jumps up on your lap for a cuddle
🐾 Sam - His work ethic as the Chief Dog Officer, and his little toe beans
🗑 Dan - How much he cares about minimising food waste with his bin diving antics
🐽 Niamh - His little nose is very cute
😊 Nell - It makes me happy to see how nice Baxter's life is
☕️ Becca - How much he enjoys finishing off your cup of tea

Kenny is our Lead Web Developer and his favourite movie (although he calls it a documentary) is Jurassic Park 🦖. In fact, anything to do with dinosaurs will grab Kenny's attention. 👀

Kenny's advice to aspiring web developers is: "Imposter syndrome is not something to fear. Never worry if you feel out of your depth, it’s never a bad thing, it means you're trying to develop your skills."

Sam is not only our Designer, he's also our in-house Marvel expert. He even has a Spiderman notebook that he absolutely treasures. 🕸

Sam's advice for aspiring Designers is: "Never be afraid to experiment with your work or make mistakes, some of the best ideas come out of these areas where most are afraid to venture. Unexplored avenues can lead to potentially great ideas and outcomes being missed."

Welcoming in the Spring is our web developer Dan, our own personal ray of sunshine. 🌞

Dan is a simple man - give him a tin of beans and take him to the train station and he'll be happy as Larry. We asked Dan what bit of advice he'd give to aspiring web developers, here's what he said, "Don't try and learn everything all at once or you'll burn out. Build yourself a set of skills you can get really good at first and that will help you learn different technologies."

Since you've met the amazing women behind Factory Pattern, it's only right we introduce you to the amazing men too! Each week we'll introduce a member of our team and ask them to share some helpful advice for aspiring and fellow people in their industry.

👉 Meet Andy, the co-founder and director of Factory Pattern, as well as the User Experience expert. 😎 I managed to drag him away from skateboarding and Carhartt shopping long enough to share some advice for fellow ecommerce agencies...

"A key piece of advice I'd give to any ecommerce agency would be to understand your client's customer needs. Do this by working on your client's customer service / help desk for a day or 2. Doing this helps you to hear from your customer's customers. When you understand what customers want, then you can deliver what they need and this in turn helps build a better and more profitable business for your clients."

We've loved shining a spotlight on the talented women behind Factory Pattern this week and hope you've enjoyed learning more about us too. We also want to shoutout the men behind Factory Pattern who help to create a friendly and supportive environment for us women to thrive in.
At the end of a day, the success of Factory Pattern relies on teamwork and collaboration, which we're pretty good at. 😏 (Even if the men are still sore losers after the women's victory at the Crystal Maze.)

Happy day 4 of celebrating the women behind Factory Pattern 🙌
Today we'd like you to meet Annie - the person behind this account, and an avid crocheter and dog lover. If our office dog Baxter ever goes missing, Annie is definitely the culprit. 🧶🐶

👉 Annie is our Digital Marketing Executive and her advice for aspiring digital marketers is, "I recommend you sign up to relevant industry newsletters for valuable insights, tools, and research that can be a great source of inspiration. My favourites (after the Factory Pattern newsletter of course) are: Ariyh, tl;dr Marketing, Aleyda Solis' #SEOFOMO, Stacked Marketer, and Shoto."

In honour of International Women's Day on the 8th March, we'll be using this week to shine a spotlight on the women behind Factory Pattern where they can share advice to fellow women already in or aspiring to be in the industry. 🤩

👉 Introducing Georgina Thorne, a co-founder and director of Factory Pattern. George is a woman of many hats, as she's also head of HR and Content, as well as mum to two lovely boys and office dog, Baxter. George's advice to fellow women in the ecommerce agency industry is: "The best advice I can give my fellow ladies in this industry is to work with good people. People that push you, keep you curious and inspire you. My skills have evolved over the years, but having a strong team has been fundamental to our growth."
