What’s your role at Torpedo and how long have you been here?
I’ve been at Torpedo for just over five years and I’m a Senior Graphic Designer.
What exactly does your role entail? Can you run us through what you might get up to today, for example?
I work closely with Client Services, so today, for example, I’m working with one of my colleagues on a presentation for a client, presenting a whole load of assets we’ve created for them.
Day-to-day, my role is varied, and I work with lots of different clients. I could be working on a job at the ideas stage, presenting concepts, or on digital or print campaigns. Recently I worked on a fantastic OOH campaign, and I travelled to London to see some of the OOH work we’ve done, which included station takeovers and ads on the underground.
What tools/resources/people do you depend on to get your job done?
Adobe Creative Cloud is our absolute go-to, but I rely on all sorts of apps really. I work a lot on Photography Plan, Lightroom and Photoshop and then for any print campaigns I’ll be using InDesign and Illustrator; those are my main tools.
Obviously, the team use many different tools to communicate, especially Teams. We really like Miroboard too! It’s like a huge mood board that everyone can add to – very handy when starting a new job as everyone can pitch in with ideas, pictures, and drawings at the same time. I also use my iPad quite a lot; I find ProCreate is great for quickly scamping ideas that you can bring straight into Illustrator. It’s great for technical drawings too. I rely on mine a lot.
