Day 18 – Inspiration – Whilst at University I went on a work placement in my third year to a place based in Liverpool called Rethinkthings. I spent 3 months there and during my time really saw how a small business ran. My job was to help with the graphics and photography for the website and catalogue. Rethinkthings is run by Ilsa Parry and sells cards and gifts – “Hi! We are rethinkthings. We PRODUCE exciting objects from bright creative minds to offer character, wisdom, wit and wackiness. We CREATE things that speak your mind to make GIFTS more thoughtful and HOME more human.” I was really inspired by this placement to go and create my own designs and Ilsa encouraged me to do this. Without this experience I don’t think I would be where I am today ?
