Five minutes with Clementine Rocks, our Graduate Social Designer

When Clementine isn’t learning about social design, she’s drawing on her visual design background to help our team share their knowledge in an accessible way. We sat down with her to discuss the journey that led her to social innovation.

The TACSI team

When you're not at work, what do you get up to?

I love running, social sports, going to live music, and cooking lovely (and ambitious!) meals to enjoy in the outdoors with my friends – and I’m always up for a swim.

What were you doing before working at TACSI?

I spent a couple of years as a graphic designer working across all of Victoria's major infrastructure projects, which have been bookended by a number of branding studios and agencies across Sydney.

What are you reading/watching/listening to at the moment?

I will never not recommend the show 'It's a Sin'. It’s beautiful and full of joy while telling a really devastating story about a time and community that felt everything but.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you 'grew up'?

I liked art as a kid, but I knew I didn't want to be an artist. Interestingly, in a way, I think I have followed this sentiment! A lot of my career so far has been working out how to utilise my creative skills in a way that isn't quite as tangible as creating actual pieces of art.
