2012

Studio Manager

Beta London

Mar 2010 - Dec 2012
  • Full Time
  • During my time at (Beta) I worked closely with Creative Director and Founder Robert Campbell, managing Studio and creative resource. I split my time between managing 4 people, whilst also being available to be hands on with any artwork, retouching and design that passed through the studio. From the initial set up, I worked with Tag to facilitate the agency with the relevant kit, servers and materials it needed to function fully and then my time was spent maintaining that. Day to day, jobs were booked in through an online system and creative briefs were taken by myself from the Project and Account Management teams. I also helped to co-ordinate pitches, brief in retouching to external studios and liase directly with repro houses on busy press advertising. During a short time we managed to work and maintain good relationships with our key clients Royal Mail, Thomas Cook, Gumtree, Jackpotjoy and convert new business wins with CityJet and Nuffield Health.
