Five minutes with … Emma Kendal, senior digital designer

Emma is known as Em2, because our other Em is Emily, aka Em1. Em2 is our senior digital designer, and is a rare species: she can also code. (Rumour also has it that she can spell, too.) Em2 is a Total Design Ninja and is an absolute whizz at making things look ship shape.

What does a day in the life of you at Credit Simple look like?

I’m the designer so when I’m not glued to Photoshop designing our interfaces I’m sketching out new features, picking colours, fiddling with (and sometimes breaking) our front end code. Stirring a bit of trouble as well mostly aimed at Pokemon fans *cough, Dorian*.

What do you particularly like about what we’re doing with Credit Simple?
I like that we’re not just helping people, but also educating them on their financial position. Knowledge is power and we are giving power to the people.

Have you requested your own credit file and if so what did you think/what did you find out?
Yes! I was pleasantly surprised actually. Not sure how I managed to get a good score.

What did you do at uni?
Associate degree of Multimedia.

What did you do in your previous job/previous couple of jobs?
UX/UI design, digital design.

What do you do in your free time?
Cooking/baking, some photography, for a little while I did some brush lettering/calligraphy. Escaping the grind of daily life boating.

Tell us a little-known fact about you…
I play the flute – not well mind you – and I actually still own one although I admit that to no-one and it’s collecting dust in my parents house. I even went to band camp once…

If you were stuck on a desert island and you could choose one person from the Credit Simple team to come with you, who would you take and why?
Probably Emily – we have heaps of fun together and boredom is my biggest enemy!

This is where the author bios usually go, but Credit Simple is not an actual human being, so we can't write a bio for them. However, if Credit Simple were a human being, we'd like to think we'd be Hugh Jackman. Dreams are free.
