Introducing Charlotte Black
Posted on April 12, 2016
This week we are super excited about a new, fresh and dynamic addition to our office. Yes, we've ordered ourselves a 24" pizza from Little Wing Pizzeria for lunch! Oh, and we are also welcoming the very lovely Charlotte Black on board for a twelve week internship. We asked Charlotte to answer a few questions about herself... Describe yourself in 10 words or less Fresh Grad. Creative junkie. Ridiculously organised, competitive, and generally keen. What brought you to Clearbox? I want to learn about all things digital, PR, and events so obviously I had to get in touch with the folks at Clearbox. They're young self-starters, and a close-knit team of hard workers — just what I'm looking for to get a head start in PR and communications! They've built an exciting (and impressive) list of clients in two years so I know there're great things to learn here. What are your responsibilities at Clearbox? Is there something in particular you are really excited to work on? I'm just getting started but I can't wait to get stuck into helping out with events and learning to plan projects. I've always dropped into companies for work experience so I'm looking forward to seeing a project through from conception to finish. There's are lots of clients at Clearbox but I think Amazon Prime is something to look forward to working on. I've also been briefed on a couple of film launches the guys are working on for Universal Pictures which sound really cool. Best thing about Holywood? Holywood has a coffee shop for every day of the week. Literally. I wonder how many traybakes are in a three minute radius from the Clearbox office? These are the things I think about… What's the last book you read? I always have a couple of books on the go #litstudent. At the moment I'm reading Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts which is brilliant, but a real tome of a novel. I'm also flicking through Design of Every Things (because I'm always pushing doors that want to be pulled). Your hidden talent? Karaoke (or as my Chinese cousins call it, KTV). Bring it on folks. You're always saying… “I don't know…” — when I mean, I do know but I'm not ready to say it straight yet. Current Obsession? I got an Intuois Pen and Touch pad just before Christmas so my free time at the moment is spent animating. I love that Instagram is becoming so compatible with animation. It's my favourite downtime that I can pretend is productive. Tell us a fun fact about yourself… I've lived in five different countries, including China, Taiwan, and Norway! Thanks parents, but I don't think I'll be able to keep up that lifestyle. What's your future goal? To become a Millionaire-ess… somehow.
