Meet the Team: Emma de Silva

How are you finding working at CP so far?

I’m really enjoying the variety of jobs that come my way at Creative Pod. No two days are the same as we have such a range of clients and projects. Everyone has been very welcoming and kind. It was great to join so near the Christmas party because I got to meet everyone and have a great night with them too!

What’s your background?

After falling in love with art and history at A-Level, I studied Fine Art and History of Art at Reading University for four years. Afterwards, I worked as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer during COVID. Seeing some success in that and wanting to pursue a proper career as a designer, I created a portfolio and started on my journey. Since working as a professional designer I’ve seen my skillset transform, it’s been an amazing ride so far.

Tell us something random about you…

My biggest passion in life besides art and history is definitely music. I love listening to all sorts, from heavy metal to classical, R&B, blues, disco, soundtrack, grime, rock, folk, opera, house, latin and country in any language, from every era, even going back to early music from different parts of history! This is why I never control the music in the office!

Who are your biggest influences?

I would have to say my family and my faith are my biggest influences. I would be adrift without them both in my life.

What’s your favourite quote?

“I know what I have to do now. I gotta keep breathing. Because tomorrow the sun will rise, and who knows what the tide could bring.” - Tom Hanks, Castaway
