We sat down with our Intern, Ani, last week to find out a little more about her. Moving from Berlin to DC for an internship, Ani with be with Moiré until the end of the summer. Below is the Q&A from our sit down.
Q: How would you describe Moiré & your experience so far?
A: Great team, challenging, versatile, welcoming, directly integrated in projects, great intern program, helpful employees that share and teach me their knowledge and a nice, welcoming office.
Q: What music would you choose if challenged to a dance-off?
A: Three songs: 1. Love Sweet Sound by Groove Armada
2. Sky and Sand by Paul Kalkbrenner
3. Black & Gold by Sam Sparro
Q: What made you want to pursue design?
A: I've always liked being creative. I have been drawing since age four, I got my first camera by age five and all the books (and I am not talking about design-related ones) I used during high school are full of sketches. I don't think it is something I decided in a moment, its just something I was always passionate about in different ways. I like design because its visual, more so than words. It engulfs people’s heads and hearts and provides a creative expression - most of the time combined with strategic thinking.
Q: Three things you would choose if stranded on a desert island:
A: My laptop (with satellite wifi, so I can call for help), Pina Coladas & a hammock to enjoy the time while waiting.
Q: What is your favorite part about working for Moiré?
A: Great team, the chance to broaden and strengthen my knowledge and skills and Vodkatini Happy Hours on a late Friday afternoon at the office, it makes me feel like working at Sterling Cooper (Mad Men).
Q: Carnivore or Herbivore?
A: Like John Cleese used to say: "If God did not intend for us to eat animals, then why did he make them out of meat?"
Q: How many countries have you traveled to?
A: 19 countries, respectively 35 cities.
Q: Would you rather be a lion, tiger or bear?
A: I would be a leopard (belongs to the same family as lions and tigers) because it is extremely fast, can multitask (climb trees and carry a heavy carcass at the same time) and more importantly, consumes virtually any animal it can hunt down and catch (referring to question 6).
