Meet the Team

With Laura Crowther

In our last blog we spoke to our Business Development Manager Dan. We’re continuing the series talking to Laura, and finding out about her role as a Designer at Urban Illustration.

  1. Hi Laura, tell us about your first few months at Urban Illustration, how has it been? It's been busy, to begin with I was working from home which was different but I am back in the office now and it’s good to be where I can work within the team rather than emailing all the time.
  2. Explain your role at Urban Illustration. I am a designer for Urban Illustration so this is predominantly drawing up the buildings in the same style and working them into the city prints that we offer.

Laura Crowther

  1. So far, what have you found the most exciting part about your role at Urban Illustration? And what are you looking forward to doing in the next year?
    Seeing some of the quirky buildings in a new city. I’m looking forward to getting quicker with the design process and seeing the designs for more cities being printed.
  2. What makes Urban Illustration products unique?
    Each city print is designed in house; we do not use ‘stock’ buildings to fill gaps. Every building, park etc on a print can actually be seen in the city that the print is designed for.
  1. What is your favourite product from the range?

    The Nightingale washbag. It is ideal for the eco-friendly minded traveller.

  2. Urban Illustration has so many colour schemes, which do you prefer?
    Chicory.
  3. What are your favourite cities to visit?
    Manchester, Leeds, London, and Paris
  4. If you were given £5 what would spend it on?
    I’d like to say a train ticket but probably just lunch.

  1. What are your interests and hobbies outside of work?
    I’m also trained as a pattern cutter and costume designer, so I work with a theatre company to help out with their productions. Other than that, I have a few sewing projects on the go and decorating.
  2. Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
    A few years ago, I worked on the costumes for Little Mix’s backing dancers and Lord of the dance.

Meet the Team

With Dan Jackson

Today we’re talking to Dan, our Business Development Manager, and finding out all about him and his role at Urban Illustration.

  1. Hi Dan, you started your role during the lockdown, what was it like starting your job working from home?
    It has been strange however it has given me and the team plenty of time to ensure everything about the brand and range is perfected before we launch. Also, I do enjoy getting more time to spend with my dog at home.
  2. Explain your role at Urban Illustration.
    In my role as Business Development Manager, I will be the main point of contact for all the UK customers. I will be prospecting new customers and collaborating with them to create the best design and product range to suit their needs.

Dan Jackson

  1. So far, what have you found the most exciting part about your role at Urban Illustration? And what are you looking forward to doing in the next year?
    I’m very much looking forward to getting out on the road to spread the message about Urban Illustration. I love meeting people in their city and shop to ensure they are getting the correct products.  I am also excited about showcasing the brand at trade shows (providing they are still happening!)
  2. What makes Urban Illustration products unique?
    The Innovative designs and printing techniques allow the edge to edge printing. The fact that everything is manufactured and printed in the UK, our ethical credentials. I also think as a brand we have a strong infrastructure in place which guarantees customer flexibility in the design process.
  3. What is your favourite product from the range?
    I love the Attenborough Luxury Bag in 10oz canvas. The all-round gusset and strength of canvas makes it strong enough to carry loads of shopping 😊
  4. Urban Illustration has so many colour schemes, which do you prefer?
    I like the eye-catching bright colours of Burnet but I think the classic Poppy Seed colourway will be the most popular with our customers.
  5. What are your favourite cities to visit?
    Sitges, London, Sydney, and Berlin
  6. How would others describe you in three words?
    Beautiful, Gorgeous and Stunning – Joke! – Flamboyant, Funny and Tall!
  7. What are your interests and hobbies outside of work?
    Going out dancing, long Sunday pub lunches, going climbing and watching shows at the theatre
  8. Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
    I played a drag queen in the new Everybody’s Talking About Jamie movie, which is being released in October.
