A Welsh creative agency that provides an integrated and bespoke marketing service to organisations across the UK, has recently added a graphic designer to its team, as a result of an increase in demand for its services.
Swansea-based WATERS has employed Rosie Williams, a recent graphic design graduate from the University of South Wales (USW). Rosie brings with her a solid knowledge of the sector, having completed various work placements within the industry prior to securing her position at WATERS.
Commenting on her new role, Rosie said:
“I’m really excited to be a part of WATERS. I’ve always wanted to work at a company where I would look forward to going to work every day, and that’s exactly how I feel about working with WATERS.
“I pushed myself to obtain as much experience in the industry prior to applying for the position I now have, and it definitely paid off. I’m very much enjoying all aspects of my role with WATERS and I’m already working on large and fast-paced projects such as the design and development of print publications. I can’t wait to continue to develop and grow in 2017.”
Research conducted by the UK’s leading independent job site, CV-Library showed an increase of 40 percent in design jobs in 2016 compared with 2015.
Rhianna Hatcher, WATERS’ print production manager comments on Rosie’s appointment:
“Rosie makes a great addition to the WATERS team. With the increase in demand from our clients for design work, Rosie’s skills and ability to work at a rapid pace while obtaining attention to detail is something which is invaluable to us as a team and business as a whole.”
Last year (2016) WATERS grew to exceed the expectations of what was forecasted for the business, leading to a need for a new team member with graphic design skills.
Co-director of WATERS, Rhian East, explains:
“We are ecstatic to have Rosie on board. Her competitive skillset and previous experience is why we felt she would be a fantastic fit for WATERS, and this has proven to be true.
“2016 was an exceptional year for WATERS’ growth and expansion and we’re thrilled this is continuing into 2017, enabling us to welcome new team members to the business. We’d like to thank all of our team and of course our customers for their continuous support – we wouldn’t be able to do what we love without them.”
