Great Leaps Forward

Meet Alex Duncalf and Becky Flint, the latest additions to the Cherry Tiger creative team. Like any new cubs, we’ve been looking after them in the safety of our lair over the last year, but now that they’re starting to bloom, we’re proud to introduce them to you as a full junior team.

Alex is the copywriter and Becky the art director, and together they’ve been creating both words and pictures for clients such as OneFamily, RSPB and Medical Protection, while also contributing to our pitch wins for Mines Advisory Group, under the careful guidance of the senior Creative team.

Pity poor Alex. He’s a Liverpool fan. There’s always next year…! He came to Cherry Tiger almost straight after securing his degree in English from Liverpool University. But as a trained barista and grade 6 violin player, a lovely way with language isn’t the only string to his bow.

Alex says; Cherry Tiger is a great place to work. Each day’s different, everyone’s friendly and the whole team brings something new to the table. I feel that I’ve grown a lot in my time here, yet there’s still plenty that I can learn from the rest of the tigers. I couldn’t be happier that I pursued a career in copywriting, and that at Cherry Tiger I have the freedom and trust to find creative answers to challenging briefs.”

We’ve recently teamed Alex and Becky up together, giving them the freedom to handle entire creative challenges from start to finish, and the results are already starting to pay off. Becky has the advantage of working in an agency before Cherry Tiger, but she’s really started to spread her wings since joining us. In fact, you can tell she used to be a gymnast from all the backflips!

Becky says; “My time with Cherry Tiger has been great so far. The team has made me feel very at home and given me plenty of opportunities to get involved with agency life. I really enjoy pitches as you can go to town on concepts. Advertising is a very fast-paced environment, so I’ve learnt to work rapidly and efficiently. I quite like the pressure now!”

At least they’ve both got their friends to keep their feet on the ground. When Becky tells new friends in Leeds she’s an art director, they assume she owns a gallery and sells art. And Alex’s mates think he’s something to do with trademarks.

Kids these days, eh?
