After giving them a few weeks to get settled in, we ask our new Senior Designer, Amy and Front end Developer, Crystal a few questions to get to know them a little better.


What is your role as a new Quban?

Crystal - I’m a front end developer, I work on creating the user facing side of the website working closely with design and development.

Amy - I am a Senior Designer.

What has stood out to you about Quba so far?

Crystal - The environment is really positive, everyone is so friendly!

Amy - How lovely everyone is, and how welcome I feel so quickly.

How would you describe yourself in three words?

Crystal - Thoughtful, creative and kind.

Amy - Always, needs, sleep.

What would you say is your biggest achievement?

Crystal - Probably finishing my degree? I can’t think of anything since that I pulled all nighters for.

Amy - My partner and I had a little girl in November last year, Maisie. She is a storm in a teacup somedays and a comedian the rest of the time.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

Crystal - Mostly things like reading, catching up with Netflix or playing PC games.

Amy - I love a road trip, so if I have any spare time (a distant memory this year) I like to head off on an adventure.

What’s your favourite kind of music?

Crystal - My tastes are stuck in my teenage years so indie or punk rock.

Amy - Anything that gets you moving. I've been listening to Justice for ages and heard Harari on the radio a few years ago which opened a can of worms for me.

There's so much good stuff from the 70's that influences todays dance music, it's a goldmine. I can't get enough of Cerrone, Daft Punk, Boney M, Gary Numan, Breakwater. I also love ALL OF THE MUSIC from the 90's and some Hip Hop.

Tell us something we don't know about yourself?

Crystal - I’m a twin! We’re not identical though.

Amy - A while ago, I did a bit of family tree stuff, and found out that I have a great grandad (6 times removed) that was somewhat of a recognised mathematical genius. I think I missed out on that gene.
