Jesus Agudo is an award winning designer based in Dublin, Ireland. He recently sets up his own business, called Blessings and launched his own workshop called Brand You. We have conducted an interview with him.
What emotions/feelings do you get when you provide a creative solution?
I love solving problems with creative solutions. I enjoy creating brands from scratch, also developing existing brands from the strategy point of view, adding identity and personality across all channels.
For the past 10 years, I have become a professional individual. My goal is to take all the experience i have gained over the years and apply it, combining it with the passion for learning more - to create truly innovative digital solutions for my clients across all industries.
What brings you to Dublin while you are originally from Madrid?
I came to Dublin in 2011 on a scholarship to improve my English but after a few weeks, I found a job as a designer and decided to stay for a while. While working, I did a postgrad in digital marketing at Dublin Institute of Technology, giving me a chance to develop myself as a creative marketer and expand my skills into digital media.
Which award did you win? What did you do that gives you the award?
I won an award at the National Digital Research Centre. I participated in an e-commerce program in which thirty retailers were competing for the opportunity to go online. I was part of the design team, comprised of twenty designers in total, and i won the award for best design. As part of the prize, I was given the chance to become Shopify’s design partner. This meant I was one of the first to use this platform in Ireland, and most importantly it gave me an opportunity to be mentored by first class business acumen, Mark Kieran, from whom I learned a lot. Through this experience, I developed not only as a creator but also as an entrepreneur.
I was interviewed by the European Commission and tipped as one of the tech’s future pioneers. Here is the video with my interview.
What is it your workshop about?
I just launched my workshop called Brand You.
Brand You is about personal branding, a reflection of yourself as a professional. What's your brand? What makes you unique and different to the rest of companies and professionals out there?
I also talk about promoting your brand online and maintaining your high reputation. By becoming proficient at using social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ you can keep yourself ahead of the curve.
I did a seminar on Brand You at the Fumbally Exchange as a part of their FEX_Digital program. It was very well received, I got a great feedback from all the attendees. The Brand You workshop will be open to the public at the end of April, and I will post the dates on my website jesusagudo.com soon.
What are you future plans in UK when you will move in May?
We'll be the moving to London in May. I’m very excited about this. I feel that we have achieved a lot so far and now it’s time to move on a bigger scale. London has an enormous creative scene, probably one of the best in the world - so I feel it is the place where I should be at this moment in my career, and I’m very much looking forward to it.
