What has been the most exciting project of the last twelve months?
Working on the James Blake tour was great. I really enjoyed the final stages getting the band together– the band manager, tour manager, our team (creative director, art director, designers, Notch operators, technical designer), lighting designers and ops. Then seeing how the crowd responded to the show after months of work, was completely amazing, they went crazy! Coordinating and producing all that, from logistical elements, making sure presentations were sent on time, getting concepts signed-off, constant liaising with the tour team regarding the different stage requirements (whether festivals or otherwise), was a really steep learning curve.
What skills are essential to your job?
Multitasking and creative problem-solving on the fly. Being good with lots of different types of people. It also helps if you can pick up the technical jargon quickly.
Do you run any self-initiated or side projects alongside your job?
I do some jewellery design work and illustration commissions.
What tools do you use most for your work?
Microsoft Office, Google Sheets, Docs and email, Harvest, Workflow and occasionally Photoshop.
