Creative Design Manager
A typical day at AO
No single day is typical in the design team, that’s what makes it so special. Mine normally starts with coffee and stand up meetings at 9am to evaluate the work from yesterday and plan the day ahead for the team. Then I could be on with planning and exploring ideas for our next project or evaluating the work the team are producing to ensure it works for our customers and looks amazing. Other than that each day is different and I could be working with almost anyone from the business on a wide range of on and offsite creative work. Oh, and I’m partial to game of table football if anyone fancies a game?

That’s easy. All of them! I’m lucky to work with some amazing and very dedicated designers. Each designer has unique skills that complement the team and together we’re one massive creative monster – in the most awesome way, of course :).

I saw a job advertised, came for an interview and was blown away by the passion and expertise of the people that worked here. I knew this was the place for me and thankfully they offered me a job.
When not working, what can you be found doing?
Running around in the woods pretend light-saber fighting with my two wonderful children. When I’m not battling super-villains with the little ones I try to design as much as possible and love to make weird and wonderful (well, I think so) electronic music. I also make a mean burger.
