Check out this Q&A with Becca, our rad Roxy graphic designer!
Job Title/Description of what you do:
I am a graphic designer for Roxy and currently do web design for roxy.com (and even some work for Quiksilver and DC’s websites too). My job includes everything from designing promos that can be seen all over the site, designing the weekly emails Roxy sends out, to getting to help out with photo shoots. Another really fun part of my job is getting to concept ideas for campaigns such as holiday campaigns or special promotions we offer during the year. I love getting to be so creative all of the time, so it doesn’t feel like work because I enjoy what I do so much.
Time worked at ROXY:
Defining moment at Roxy:
I think my defining moment at Roxy actually happened before I even worked here, it’s something that led to me getting my job here… A few months before I got the job, I entered a surfboard design contest Roxy was hosting, which I found out about on the Roxy blog. I sent in my design, and it ended up being one of three designs that were chosen to be put onto a surfboard that was then displayed in one of the Roxy stores. When I found out I was one of the winners I was SO excited… I hopped in the car with a few of my friends and drove to the store immediately to go check it out… I couldn’t believe the surfboard hanging in the window was actually something I created! I have loved Roxy for so long, and being a recent college grad it was a goal of mine to try to get a job here, and I knew having my design chosen to be on a surfboard put me one step closer to my dream!
Fav part of working for ROXY:
I love getting to be creative everyday and I love waking up each morning and actually wanting to go to work. When I am here I don’t even feel like it’s work because I am surrounded by so many great people, who are also all excited about the brand, the industry and just being here.
Style Icon/Style Inspiration:
I’m not really inspired by one style in particular… I love to shop and collect random pieces, whether they are old, new, borrowed, whatever it is I come across that I really like. Then I often turn to magazines, catalogs, blogs and my friends to get inspiration on how to put all the random pieces I’ve collected together, to make an outfit that works…
Go-To Fashion Item or Outfit right now:
I’d have to say that one of my favorite things in my closet right now is a black boyfriend blazer… I wear it ALL the time. It goes with everything and is great for dressing up and works with casual outfits too… I wish I had one in every color.
Advice to Readers:
Never give up and think that what you want to do with your life isn’t possible. I have wanted to work for Roxy since I was 15, and I never gave up, and now, 10 years later, here I am with my dream job. Everyone told me that I shouldn’t get too excited and expect to have my dream job right out of college, but turns out, anything is possible, because I DO!
