Ten Crazy Questions: Liza Enebeis
Curious about the people who work at Dept and make all the amazing work you see of us? We thought so. In this new blog format we’re introducing our employees one by one by not asking the regular questions, but different ones. Want to know who once put 250 of our business contacts in cc instead of bcc in an email, who desperately wants to see the Clueless trend make a comeback in fashion and who really feels a bond with peanut butter? You’re about to find out.
Hi Liza! How did you end up at Dept and what do you do here all day?
I am from the Studio Dumbar team – our speciality is visual identities – from strategy to reality. We joined Dept in 2016. I have been with Studio Dumbar as Creative Director the last 10 years. Joining Dept was great it was like starting new. So many new colleagues and an extreme boost of knowledge and talent. What I do all day?? I spend most of the day working with the designers in the team, guiding them through projects and the creative process. Preparing presentations, presenting, public speaking and workshops.
Let’s say you didn’t work here, what would be your daily activity?
I would spend more time on my podcast station that I co-founded and co-host called Typeradio.org. There are over 500 interviews on type and design free to download. You can listen to the super famous like Paula Scher, Stefan Sagmeister, Wim Crouwel and young and upcoming talent. I still have an endless list of people I want to interview so this would be the chance.

What was your biggest fashion mistake?

How prepared are you for a zombie apocalypse?
Very prepared – we have had a long discussion with the Dumbar team. I will be the first to go. I can’t run to save my life. Plus I am not skinny so there is plenty to feast on and slow down the zombies – this will help the rest of the team to gain time and run away.
