Say hello to our two newest hoodies Luke and Leila!
After rubbing shoulders with Simon Cowell - and half the population of the British Isles - working as a runner on Britain's Got Talent, Leila has joined us as our new Studio Assistant and the friendly face of the neighbourhood. Luke is our new 3D Artist from across the pond - Australia to be precise. Luke has been working in the UK for a few years now but has moved up north to join the neighbourhood, and by all accounts is still getting used to the wonderfully idiosyncratic Manchester weather!
You can read more about them on our about us page, but in the meantime we asked them to answer some burning questions...
Your role at the neighbourhood in 5 words?
Luke: Inspire, create, innovate, storytelling, 3D
Leila: Welcomer, Biscuit buyer, Financer, Oddjobber, PhoneVoicer
Favourite 'craft' related thing to do?
Luke: Photography and finding ways to use it in creative ways.
Leila: Making boring things look pretty.
Chippy Friday or Biscuit Wednesday?
Luke: Chippy Friday, although both are foreign concepts to me!
Leila: Chippy Friday (Savoury Forever).
What's on your 'walkman'?
Luke: A healthy variety from Beastie Boys to Gorillaz to Fleetwood Mac and everything in between
Luke: I have the strange ability to read text upside down and back to front. I'm still waiting for the day this will come in handy.
Leila: I speak Portugese.
