The digital industries thrive on talent and it’s crucial that agencies work to inspire and attract the creative and technical stars of the future. The latest young talent to join the Onespacemedia team is 15 year old Olly Lockyer who joins on a two week work experience programme.
Tell us a bit about yourself...
I’m 15, from Cambridge, studying for my GCSEs at Sawston Village College and I have a strong interest in design, media and film.
What do you hope to gain from your experience at Onespacemedia?
I hope to find out what it's like to work in a creative professional team. I also want to expand my knowledge in all areas of digital design. I’ve learned a lot already and it’s only been a few days!
What interests you about design?
What I love most about design are the possibilities. The thing that drives me when designing something is that feeling I get when it works - when everything combined just clicks.
What’s the most valuable thing you’ve learned so far?
From my experience so far I have learnt that listening carefully and absorbing all the information is incredibly important. There’s a lot to take in but the team has been amazing!
Fast-forward five years - what will you be doing?
In five years time I hope to be closer to my dream of owning my own media company, just as successful as Onespacemedia - if I haven't already ;)
Three things in life you couldn’t live without?
The three things in life that I definitely couldn’t live without are my phone, camera and computer - I’d be completely lost without them!
When you're not in the office/at school we will find you…
Whenever I get any free time I’m usually working on a design, running/cycling, or planning/making my next movie for my small, personal YouTube channel.
