Errol’s Story

Growing up, I always loved drawing as well as comic books and cartoons. My mum is a jeweller and does intricate sketches for her work and my dad always has a project underway in his workshop. They both inspired me to be creative and design is a great career for that.

I have been doing posters and record covers for bands since before I was a designer. This led to me studying Interactive and Visual Design. After that, I worked making websites and designing logos at a studio before returning to university to do my masters. That’s when I started as a casual at Teach Starter. I now work remotely full-time from Melbourne.

I am now employed full time as a Senior Graphic Designer and have worked on everything from board games to the design of the Teach Starter App. Next month will be my four-year anniversary in this job!

I really like being part of the Design Team at Teach Starter. Teach Starter highly values creativity and quality. We get to pour everything we have into our work. This really helps us grow and improve as creators. That would be my second favourite thing about Teach Starter. My first is our brilliant team!

A Fun Fact About Errol…
