Above: Bev is our amazing graphic designer/B-girl. She is creative, super stylish, and loves to get her sweat on at hot yoga classes.
What is your role at lululemon?
I am one of the graphic designers in the Community Relations department and I work out of the Store Support Centre in Vancouver. I work with my partner Any and we design graphics for store events, ambassador posters, in-store artworks, ads, packaging and pretty much anything creative that prints out of a printer.
What is a typical Wednesday like for you?
Oh hump day... Definitely start the day off with coffee, checking emails and dockets, put on my creative luon and it is design go time.
What has been your biggest career achievement, to date?
I think simply being part of this company has been a huge achievement for me. I was working on my BA in Communication Design at Emily Carr University of Art and Design and applied to work at lululemon for a 3 month co-op, and after 3 months I was hired on full time. I started at lululemon the day after I put up my grad show and that’s when all the fun started. I feel really lucky to be part of a company with such amazing core values and the unconventional marketing strategies that keeps me challenged and on the top of my game. How will I ever work for a place that does traditional marketing?! Who knows.
How do you think your co-workers would describe you?
I am crazy crazy passionate about my job. I don’t mess around
What's your favourite yoga class? Why?
Hot yoga! I am a sweat machine and hot yoga lets me embrace my sweat.
How do you usually sweat once a day?
I play a lot of volleyball (indoor and beach) and I'm a b-girl (breakdancer) in training.
What’s one activity/fitness trend that you’ve been dying to try?
CrossFit and Aerial Dancing (haha...they are quite different than each other but im dying to try both!!)
What’s your biggest guilty pleasure?
If we were to see you during (however it is you say you sweat) what would you be wearing?
Volleyball: Boogie On Shorts or Rock On Shorts, Run: Swiftly Tech Top or Racerback Tank, Flow Y Bra and Knee High Socks. (Everything needs a matching accent color... Very important)
What are your future career goals?
Other than helping this company grow from 100 stores to 200 and expanding out of North America, I do want to expand my horizons and work in a design/advertising agency where I can design for multiple brands.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
The difference between a goal and a dream is writing it down – Chip Wilson
