*NEW* Feature Friday - Talented 26th Of August

New Feature Friday!
Featuring Talented

Happy Friday everyone! And welcome again to another edition of Feature Friday; This is a business which I couldn't have been more thankful for. 
I recently held the NottsAlzheimersMeet-up which you may or may have not known about, and they kindly donated their gorgeous tote bags for the ladies to take all their goodies home with them! With great customer service, friendly staff on hand to answer any questions or in my case worries some may have they did a brilliant job and it's my pleasure to welcome them to you.

I shall be doing a separate blog post in regards to my meet-up so keep an eye out for that as I've got plenty of posts to upload soon. Shopper bags this day and age have become more essential to us as we all divert away from the 5p carrier bag, alternatives are tote bags which I have a vast selection of at home and have found them handy when it comes to meetings, shopping and days out! Talented are a company that provide eco-friendly bags with all different types of designs and gifts for occasions. It was a pleasure to find out more information about this lady behind the brand and her future goals as a businesswoman!

Interview with Julia Gash l Company Director of Talented

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career?
I draw map like illustrations, called Cityscapes, of places around the world, to commission and these are printed onto ethically made and eco-friendly tote bags, giftware and stationery. Travel and culture around the world is my inspiration! I love discovering new places, whether its through my work or in the flesh.  My other two design inspirations are my cats Bobby and Jimmy who keep me sane every day: http://www.madebytalented.com/collections/the-adventures-of-bobby-jimmy and Facebook page – Bigbobandlittlejim

2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?
I love the creativity of illustrating a place and seeing it come together on product. The best thing is when I actually walk into a store and see it on sale or even better, see it swinging from someone's arm in some far flung place!

3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?
Winning the National SME Business Leader Award at the Institute of Directors was a significant achievement, visiting Buckingham Palace and having a visit to our print studio from Princess Anne are other amazing memories.

4) Where do you see yourself in the future?
Cityscaping my way around the world. Spending more time designing, travelling and mentoring start ups and small businesses that are focused on growing internationally.

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?
Life and work is a journey with many, surprising twists and turns. You have to be prepared to give 100% and more and be able to pick yourself up and dust yourself down time after time.  Do what you are good at and enjoy – because you are going to spend lots of hours doing it!

6) Which would you say is your favorite item from the Talented website at the moment?
The New York Tote Bag. I am going there to a trade show next week and this tote bag is tormenting every day as I just want to be there!   http://www.madebytalented.com/products/new-york-medium-tote
