I am Mike and I am the Graphic Designer at African Adventures. I work most closely with the Marketing and Communications team, but my job requires me to work with everyone in the office which is a lot of fun.
I was able to travel to Kenya in 2017 and visit the projects that African Adventures works with. As well as being an incredible, motivating experience, this gave me a whole new level of understanding of what we are doing, and why we are doing it – which I can channel straight back into my work.
One of my favourite things about African Adventures is the company’s values and ethos, and the way this permeates almost every aspect of the business. Whether it’s challenging ourselves to be carbon neutral in the office by 2021; organising fundraising campaigns for our charity, African Adventures Foundation; or our focus on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Outside of office hours I spend much of my time lettering comic books, working with artists and writers all over the UK, and across the globe. I also enjoy playing computer games and watching various sports.
