Maisie Cox

Student Designer

Maisie is a student designer who has joined us for her year in industry as part of her sandwich degree of Interior Architecture and Design, from Nottingham Trent University. She is keen to learn all about the industry and is doing so by helping out and working alongside colleagues from all areas of the design team, on both small and large scale projects. Maisie is also very involved with our social media, relationships with suppliers and social events as a company.

In her spare time Maisie enjoys baking, crafts and spending time with her friends.

 

Have a read of our Q&A with Maisie about her time with us so far:

  • Why did you choose to complete your placement at WpC?

I’ve always wanted to work in London and WpC has a fantastic location. I also was very excited to find out more about office design and the design and build industry – which I previously knew next to nothing about.

 

  • What have you enjoyed most about your time at WpC?

I have loved how since day one I have felt like part of the WpC family, whether it be me getting stuck in with design and the design team or socially as  it a lovely team of people who bounce well off each other. I have always felt involved and an important part of the team.

 

  • What have you learned/how have you developed professionally during your time at WpC?

From my time so far I have gained a lot more perspective and can now see and appreciate a more ‘real’ way of designing. Going on site visits and talking to my colleagues has helped me to gain a more practical understanding of how your designs can become reality – which makes it much more exciting!

 

  • What advice would you give to future placement students?

My main piece of advice would be to get stuck and get involved so that you really enjoy and get the most out of this year. Whether that be with work or socially, as I said what I like most is feeling like part of the team, this wouldn’t have come so easily if I didn’t throw myself in! It is also helpful to be organised and to discuss timescales and workloads to avoid too much stress and late nights!

 

  • How do you think your placement at WpC will help you in your final year?

Becoming more confident in using software has been a big thing for me, at the end of second year I was fairly confident on AutoCAD and Photoshop but steered clear of InDesign and Sketchup – now I would say I am so much more confident (and efficient) in all of those! Not only this I am generally more confident in my design ability and decision making due to my increased knowledge of the practicality side.
