Morning Person of the Day: Tess Braden

Meet Tess Braden (@t.braids), digital designer and @melbourne_cm speaker liaison!

What is your first and/or most meaningful CreativeMornings experience?

My most memorable CreativeMornings would be emailing someone I really admire to ask if they would like to speaker at an event and getting a big fat yes from them! And then getting to meet them and realising that they are super chilled and​ really​ lovely. Aside from that I love volunteering at CreativeMornings Melb​ourne and seeing so many familiar smiling faces each month. ​

Describe the work that you do and the impact you’re trying to make.

I am a digital designer, I get to work on the digital experience for a budget airline company. I love trying to make a difference by improving the experience that absolutely everyone has an opinion on and quite often it’s not a positive one. But slowly that is changing :)

What are your ideal conditions for your creativity?

I am without a doubt a morning person, I sometimes surprise myself with the amount of things I can achieve before 9am but on the odd occasion​ ​6pm can be my magic hour. Either way it​'s​ headphones​ on​ or​ complete​ silence with minimal people around that keeps me focused.

What would you consider your superpower? Why and how do you use it for good?

I think my superpower is joy. I can turn almost any situation into a positive one with smiles on faces. ​I have always loved changing a dull situation into something where everyone can laugh and have fun. ​

Tell me something about yourself that I can’t find on Google.

​I love learning about dreams. ​I wish I was ​called the dream queen.​
