Meet Rachel Shilllcock, theEword's latest recruit and the newest member of the web design team. Here, she chats to our SEO blog about life in Manchester, tasty websites and an obsession with Twitter.

Hello Rachel. How are you?

Hello theEword blog. I'm good thank you.

How is your second day going at theEword?

Very well thanks. Everyone seems super nice and it's great to finally be getting started.

Good to hear it. What are you looking forward to the most during your tenure here?

Well, you have a completely unique range of clients, so I'm keen to get involved on some varied projects over the next few months. It's going to be an interesting and exciting experience.

You sound very keen. We like that. What's your motivation?

I aim to create simple, yet functional site designs. I love starting with a blank page and aiming to produce a fully functional website.

Well, we look forward to seeing what you come up with.

2010 has been a year for clean and simplistic web design. It's gradually becoming more accepted that a website can be professional without being too bossy.

Away from web design, what do you do for fun?

I like to read. I also sing a lot.


Not really.

Us too. We noticed that you were a big Twitter user. What do you use the service for?

I wanted to get to know more people in the industry. I also like to help people out with any design-related queries.

Aren't you nice? Finally, what's your favourite flavour of crisps?

I'm never too far away from a bag of salt and vinegar crisps.
