Meet The Team: Andy
It’s all well and good knowing a brand as a brand, but do you know who you’re even talking to behind the screen? Well, here at ideal flatmate, we’ve got a pretty cool bunch of folk, if we do say so ourselves. So much so, that we think they need a little bit of raving about – you know, a whole blog post dedicated to them.
We slipped into their emails (we know DMs sound much better, but we’re not great fibbers) and asked some questions for you to know a little more about them.
Just don’t pick a favourite OK?
World meet Andy. Andy is not only our Graphic and UX designer, and makes everything on ideal flatmate look amazing (literally), but he’s also a qualified tennis coach – you learn something new everyday huh? You’ll most likely find Andy designing a page, creating an infographic, or checking out some new prints to buy for the office. And when he’s not with us, there’s a strong chance he’ll have a pale ale in hand and watching Soccer Saturday!

Quick fire round:
Early riser or night owl? 100% a night owl. Don’t except many words out of me pre-9am
House party or dinner date? Dinner date
Coffee in or coffee out? Coffee out – people watching in coffee shops is very underrated
Cooking or takeaway? Takeaway on a Friday – Rosa’s Thai my personal fav.

Laundry or dishes? Both seem to be my designated jobs in our household!
