Digital Designer

  • Hey I’m Simon, better known as Scam by my colleagues, and I’m a Digital Designer. I work at an advertising agency called glue London and my job involves working specifically with interactive video production.

    That means I work with film, special effects and 3D graphics, in developing games and all sorts of other cool stuff you see online. My job is hugely varied; one day I could be creating an online 3D game and the next I’ll be shooting a piece of film with miniature body cameras.

    Even though I work in what is typically considered a “creative” field, my maths and science background has really helped me with the technical side of my career. If you’re creative, but also like maths and science, this is the perfect job for you.

    Did you know?

    A Digital Designer can earn between £14,000 and £45,000.

    Being involved in loads of video shoots means you have to travel all over the country and sometimes abroad.

    You get to work with a huge range of people, from film directors and actors, to designers and illustrators.

    As a digital designer you need to stay on top of creative, visual and technological trends.

    Digital designers are responsible for a whole host of things we see everyday from websites and ads to book covers and TV programmes.
