How collaborative is your role?
We are a small team of six, so it’s easy for me to catch up with the team throughout the day. I work closely with Hamish across all areas of the business on a daily basis. He has the pleasure of sitting next to me and being distracted regularly.
What are the most and least enjoyable aspects of your job?
The most enjoyable part of being a project manager is the relationships I make with our clients. Studio Makgill has some fantastic clients, including G.F Smith who I adore.
The least enjoyable part is when your team is stressed or overloaded with work or tight deadlines. This can’t always be avoided, but I work hard to ensure the workload and project scheduling is carefully considered and spread evenly across the studio.
What has been the most exciting project of the last twelve months?
The G.F Smith Gmund Applied promotion and launch was a fantastic project to see come to life. We designed so many brilliant things for three UK launches. It consisted not only of the gorgeous printed promotion, but German beer tankards, invitations, artwork for live letterpress, tote bags – you name it.
