How would you describe your job?
I look after the photography and set design roster of Blink Art, a creative agency representing photographers, directors, set designers, animators and illustrators. We are a sister company to Blink Productions and Blink Ink. In my position, I work alongside the head of our department, head of illustration, our in-house producer and creative assistant.
What does a typical working day look like?
One of the best things about this job is that there is no typical day – you never know what you might work on! I try to split my time between making and attending portfolio meetings, where I present the photographer or set designer’s work. These meetings can be with brands, advertising agencies, record labels and design studios. Some of our photographers and set designers direct and animate, so we give presentations of their motion work to TV creative departments too.
When a job enquiry comes in for an artist, I find out all the details including schedules, a refined list of deliverables and the top-line budget. Then I speak to the artist and work out if it’s a job we want to take on. Once that is decided, I hand the job over to our in-house producer to budget in full and run from there.
