Walk us through your average day.
It really depends if it is peak season for events or digital content.
If we are in a middle of a new wave of clients for events I’ll spend a good chunk of time on creating event pages and banner packs for those.
If we have to launch either a new piece of original content like the podcasts episodes or infographics I will spend some time on all fronts: creating teaser videos or reports PDFs, webpages and all adjacent collateral.
And when I’m not doing any of those things I either try to find ways to come up with new ideas for the brands I’m responsible for and create templates to simplify the repetitive tasks.
What is the most challenging thing about your job?
Staying fresh while doing quite a few of the same things by trying to add some little twist to every other iteration of the same type of content.
And the most rewarding part?
That moment when the ideas I have for a design end up looking good, or better, when put on paper (or the screen).
What’s your spirit animal?
Hmm, probably a crow. I like to bend and twist a tool or a piece of code to end up with the desired result even if it was not meant to actually do that.
If you were a wine, what would you be?
I really do not know that much about wine. Maybe, Chardonnay… quite common but if you get know me you can find the subtle notes.
Pineapple on pizza: yes or no?
Yes – especially at a work social when everyone goes for either too much meat or no meat at all.
What’s the best present anyone has ever given you?
A Red Letter Days extended light aircraft flying lesson.
What’s been your biggest accomplishment at Chief Nation?
Using the same GIF to say ‘Hi!’ to the new Chiefs on the company’s WhatsApp group.
Leaving the joke aside, the biggest accomplishment has to be the Chief Wine Officer rebranding after I joined the company. I was pretty happy with the way I created a cohesive look on all type of collateral, printed, web and social media.
