Get To Know the team! Q&A with Laia
MY FRIENDS CALL ME: Laia or Lai
AT PDPAOLA I WORK AS: Senior Graphic Designer & Junior Art Director
I LOVE WHAT I DO BECAUSE: It inspires me. I am part of a very fun team and I work as a creative, which is something I am passionate about.
MY WORKWEAR UNIFORM: A puff sleeve blouse, wide vintage sailor-cut jeans, and classic 80s white sneakers.
I love black, plain, neutral colors but, lately, I have started to add more color to my wardrobe with tartan patterns.
MY FAVORITE AUTUMN OUTFIT: A pair of plaid wide trousers, a cozy crossed cardigan, and chunky black boots.
MY FAVORITE DRINK: Chai latte with lots of cardamom
MY MUSE: Weyes Blood & Aldous Harding
I love both their music and creative personas.
WHAT’S ON MY NIGHTSTAND: A cute lamp, a pile of to-be-read books and a scented candle.
MY DREAM JOB WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL: Archeologist!
I have always loved ancient, historical relics. During lockdown, I became obsessed with the buried city of Pompeii and all the unknown art that has been hidden for centuries, so I binge-watched every documentary about it.
A RITUAL I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT: Cuddle with my cat every morning.
MY BEST MOMENT AT WORK: When my team and I come up with great ideas together.
Creativity sparks are great and... The GIF moments!
MY LIFE MOTTO: Learn every day how to be kinder with the world around me: people, animals, and nature.
MY FAVORITE SONG: Levitation by Beach House.
MY FAVORITE BOOKS: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë and Spring by Ali Smith.
I am passionate about literature and I find reading very soothing.
THE MOST INSPIRING ART PIECE: It’s so hard to choose just one!
I love the work of Hilma af Klint, which is the very first western abstract painter, along with the musings of color and mysticism of Mark Rothko. And on a completely different vibe I am fascinated by the female depictions of Pre-raphaelite brotherhood like the iconic Ophelia by John Everett Millais.
