2014

Client Manager

The Ink Wave

Apr 2012 - Feb 2014
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • I have a wealth of experience around managing both project managers, often over seas, when dealing with outsourced design developments and also individual contributors, including in house teams and individual, often remote, freelancers. This requires an in depth understanding of work flows, timeframes, resources available but also a key focus on a brand’s outward image towards client interactions, in order to be able to deliver a timely service that is both desirable and timely, whilst meeting all associated parties requirements. As well as maintaining client relations, I have also found particularly within my experience at design agencies, that my existing expertise with design software and art processes, but also close relations with many graphic designers and the workflow and associated design practices, aids in my ability to deliver both an enjoyable working environment for project managers and individual contributors but also, a welcoming and ever attentive and understanding delivery on a client front.
