Date

Mar 09, 2020

Here at Wonder we work hard – but we have fun too.

We're constantly growing together as a team, to ensure that everyone gets the most out of their work but also feels supported and inspired in their professional development. So it seemed only natural we'd start to spotlight the people behind the projects – the amazing team that make our Wonder culture so unique. First up is Alice Seymour, a key member of the Projects dream team.

How long have you been a member of Wonder?

Junior Project Manager.

It genuinely feels like working with your pals.

What's your favourite piece of Wonder's work and why?

I LOVE being part of the Google for Education stand at Bett every year. It's a really fun event to work onsite at – there's always a big buzz around both the creativity of the stand and the wider event which makes it exciting to deliver.

What do you love most about the creative experience industry?

There's always something new to see and learn about – I'm continually wowed by new work, ideas and creativity from within the Wonder team.

What Wonder value to you most aspire to and why?

Refreshing honesty – it means you're working alongside clients in partnership and definitely makes it more of a collaboration, something you create together.

For all of these, it feels good to be part of the company and contribute to the wider team outside of my day to day job.

Social enterprises – I'm continuously inspired by the drive to change our world for the good.

What’s something about you that not many people know?

I learnt the other day that my great great grandma used to live opposite Village Underground in Shoreditch.

What’s one Wonder-ful thing (either industry-related or not) you learned or saw in the last month?

Curve Garden in Dalston, east London. It's Wonder-ful because it's a public garden in the centre of a built up area, providing social, economic, environmental and health benefits to people from all walks of life. It's run by volunteers, is non-profit and there are lots of free events, creating a real sense of community and bringing people together!
