“I am a hard working, highly driven person with an enthusiastic and positive outlook towards life…”

Hello. I’m Dora, I’m currently the Brand Manager  and Website Content Developer of company Tartan Spirit. In 2012 I graduated from The Glasgow School of Art where I achieved a Masters degree in Fashion & Textiles specialising in Woven Textile Design. The course and consequent career path has suited me well as I am equally creative and logical.

Outside of work I have a strong passion for  the outdoors, and enjoy almost any challenging pursuit! I love to mountain bike and have competed in several endurance races around Scotland, the big one last year was Tour de Ben Nevis finishing 14th in the female category. I also enjoy trying to push my limits through running and rock climbing.

I enjoy travelling and love to experience foreign cultures and meet new people, as an artistic person this is brilliant as there are always such new wonderful things to see, sketch or photograph.

From a personal point of view I am an ambitious, adventurous and determined individual, perhaps a little stubborn at times! I like to keep busy always try new things, as a result I’ve always had more hobbies and interests than I can afford, or have the time for! I believe these have moulded me into a well-rounded and creative designer, with an eye for detail and instinct for what will and will not work.
