Meet the Partridge Team – Eugene

What’s your story, how did you get to Partridge?

I graduated from University in the summer of 2005 with a degree in Design.  The post of graphic designer became available and I went for the interview, albeit, not my best performance but I got the job. 12 years later and I am still part of the Partridge family@

What is your role?

My role is that of Lead Designer. I am in charge of the busy design dept and manage all the web based profiles and social media updates and blog posts. It is a very busy job but I love it.

What is your favourite Partridge product?

I have to say that I love the Power Banks and Bluetooth Speakers. Anything that connects to my phone while on the move is great.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I like to run when I get the chance. So far I have completed 2 half marathons. I hope to do another one.

The Playhouse Children’s Art Festival – sponsored by PPP

Every year Partridge Peartree sponsors The Children’s Arts Festival held by The Playhouse in Derry City. We are proud to supply the tees for such a great event that inspires and excites so many young minds.

It is a great event which is a great 2 week programme aimed at children and teens. They explore different themes and have access to a wide array of workshops ranging from Drama, Visual Arts, Dance, Music and much more.

All workshops are lead by friendly, professional home-grown artists.
