Meet the Clitbait Team: an interview with Peggy Mitchell, Graphic Designer
Name, pronouns, role:
Peggy Mitchell (she/her), Graphic Designer
When I was younger, I would pretend that I had unicorns run alongside me while in the car. I would give them names and write up stories about them in my head.
What does intersectional feminism mean to you?
Listening and learning. We can gain so much knowledge from others if we listen, even if we do not necessarily agree with that opinion. We can understand what others are going through and the struggles that they have come across or overcome and create a community which supports all backgrounds and minorities.
What is your favourite thing about Clitbait?
The diversity and passion! I love seeing how well everyone as team gets on and works together while also making sure that everyone gets their voice heard. Also the opportunity given to others to share their stories, art, poetry, photos really brings together what feminism is all about.
What inspires you?
Environments, people, communities and current affairs. I am a very passionate person especially when it comes to things that I strongly believe in which I try and portray within my illustrations. My hardworking and dedicated friends also inspire me, inspire me to be the best I can and never pass any opportunity that make rise.
What things do you do outside Clitbait that you are proud of?
As a designer and illustrator is it very hard to be happy with work or even be proud of it, but I have recently had work be featured in small independent zines which to think a year or two ago I wouldn’t even think I would have the confidence to even give my work out.
A guilty feminist confession?
Is this a feminist confession? I’m not sure but I HATE and cannot iron. Luckily I can cover the crinkles or rock the scrunched up t-shirt look but I really struggle making my clothes look neat so I’ve had my dad to iron my outfits for most of my teenage years. At least then I know there will not be a crease in sight!
A personal feminist triumph?
I’ve started to teach myself to play the bass guitar, as I have always wanted to be as cool as Este Haim. I have never been musically talented but I’ve decided now is the time to change that, you never know, I might be in a groundbreaking band making it big haha.
