Donna’s Story

After becoming a creative graduate, I found it difficult to find work that combined my enthusiasm for the creatives, learning, design and technology. I fell into teaching and training. However, it was when learning technologies started to emerge, that I found my calling, combining the fields that I loved.

I started freelancing, using my creative design knowledge to improve face to face training presentations and materials. During this time, the technologies used for these types of presentations improved and the call for online training increased and my extensive background in Art & Design and education filled the niche for being suited and able to create this type of learning.

After several years of freelancing, the demand for online training increased significantly and became to much work for just me, so I looked for ways to take on someone to help us grow as a business. I was looking for creative, young, future focused people to be on my team and I found that first someone through an apprenticeship scheme, that Sparsholt College had for a Digital Learning Design qualification, and this is how the business started to grow and propelled us forward to where we are today.
