28 Jun My Day Job: Justin Poulter
Cape Town illustrator and co-founder of One Horse Town Justin Poulter left our shores a while ago to work for UK based design studio – I Love Dust. We know a few local designers who would give an arm to work at this studio so we found out from Justin what it’s like:
Between 10and5: Please let us know your official (or unofficial) job title.
10and5: What does it take to do what you do?
10and5: If you studied, what and where did you study?
Justin: I went to CPUT, I studied graphic design and illustration between avoiding student protests with riot police on campus.
10and5: Best day ever on the job?
Justin: It was tough in the beginning keeping up with the pace, and trying to impress everyone, so had a couple of bad days. But generally it’s great, we have some great laughs here in the studio.
10and5: Weirdest task you’ve had to perform while at work?
Justin: Taking my boss’ dog Heskey out for a walk, I went round the block, it took 45 minutes cause he walks mad slow.
10and5: What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Justin: I kinda always knew I wanted to be drawing in whatever I do. I wanted to be an artist till I found out you can actually get a job drawing.
10and5: Advice to those who want to follow in your footsteps?
Justin: Creative director for a company like this, eventually.
