Who the hell is

Who the hell is Georgia Harrison?

Get to know some of the brilliant minds behind our work. We’re chatting with members of the DixonBaxi studio about what makes them who they are. From the professional to the personal, nothing is off limits here. Introducing: Georgia, our motion designer who’s got moves as well as kicks, and nearly became the next Pythagoras.

Who are you and what do you do?

Hey, I’m Georgia, the new motion designer, and I make things move.

What’s your story?

Originally, I thought of doing Maths at university, but after going to some open days I concluded that I didn’t want to give up studying some kind of art, my other favourite subject. So I went to do a foundation year in Art. That’s when I discovered that graphic design allowed me to use my problem-solving skills in a creative context.

I packed my bags and went to Manchester School of Art to study Graphics. Then I found that the best way to tell a story was with moving images, so I cracked open the tutorials and delved into the world of motion design – and I haven’t stopped since.

What are you working on right now?

Something cool, something fun, and something new.

"Being surrounded by motivated, passionate and creative people, both at work and outside of it, always inspires me to be better."

Describe your working style in 3 words.

Playful, curious, and technical.

Tell us about some of your interests. What are you into?

In my free time I’m hanging out with mates and cooking up a storm. I’m also big into music and go to a lot of gigs. I like picking up random hobbies, like Lego, aerial hooping, or DIY activities. I also love shoes.

Do you think design can change the world? How?

It can and it has. Whoever designed the printing press changed the world. And then there’s the internet. Not to mention the iPhone.

If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?

The people who are in charge of the world and making the wrong decisions.

What’s the last song you listened to?

Silly Games - Janet Kay.

Why do you do what you do? What motivates you?

When I do something I couldn’t do before. And the people around me. Being surrounded by motivated, passionate and creative people, both at work and outside of it, always inspires me to be better.

What’s your definition of good design?

When you don’t clock how good it is straight away, and then you have an ah-ha moment.
