Ever wanted to know more about Loopy Lally?
If you missed the chance to read our 5 minutes with article on the Renfrewshire.gov website check out our interview below.
Why the Name?
I think the name Loopy Lally encompasses my brand very well as everything I design is very energetic, colourful and you could say loopy!
The name came from my gran who grew up with an Aunt Lally who by all accounts was a little loopy so I thought why not combine them and make it my brand name.
What motivates you?
I am motivated by bringing joy and colour into peoples lives. I love the process of starting from a painting or a sketch and seeing it brought to life in a tangible product that brightens up someone’s home.
What does your brand bring to the world?
My brand brings fun, energy and colour into the world.
I believe in taking a minute and opening our eyes to see the beauty that surrounds us in everyday life that we bypass.
I want my designs to express that with my quirky colourful buildings and abstract marks.
Just like the weather here in Scotland, life can seem dull and dark at times and my job as a designer is to bring colour into peoples lives and help them see the world more colourfully.
What’s the most important lesson you’ve learnt so far in your career?
The most important lesson I have learned is that you have to really love what you do and have the confidence and self belief, because it’s only you that can make your business work.
Self doubt is a hurdle that you have to overcome, sometimes daily, but when you believe in yourself, others will believe in you.
What’s the one piece of advice you would give to someone starting out in the industry?
I would say to surround yourself with positive people and people that want to help you and your business.
Grow your social circle and network with people in your industry, and even people in industries that are nothing to do with yours, as you never know who they might know or how they might help you.
Which is your own favourite piece from your collection?
My favourite piece from my collection is my Glasgow print as this was the first piece I had created in this collage style using hand drawing and CAD. This design was pivotal point in my deisgn style and I realised the potential of the different subject matters I can use to produce many more designs.
