My most recent post was an industrial one; Packaging Artworker with Cuts Ice Ltd. E-Liquid Laboratories, dealing with FMCG across multiple markets (mainly European). I was responsible for their packaging print management (origination and adaptation) plus extensive involvement in product stewardship (the most complex being BAT's e-liquids). The role also included experience with NPD/NPI and brand development.
Previous posts included that of creative artworker/designer for The Wren Press, a double Royal Warrant holder and producer of luxury bespoke stationery (printed by engrave and diestamp, litho and digital processes).
Prior to this, my experience had been almost exclusively in the advertising services industry working in small independent studios and also in-house agency studios.
The work undertaken (especially in the in-house studio environment) could be quite varied ranging from blue-ship/above-the-line press ad origination to direct mail and presentation/pitch work. I have always had a flexible attitude to working hours, enjoy working within a team and am very familiar with the unpredictability of workflow during the working day.
