Why we are “Best Creative Business”
Studio View was founded in 2002 and within three years we were awarded “Best Creative Business” in our area. This was due to our people, their artistic nous and business acumen. Here’s our roll call.
James has a head for business. James believes, and he may be right, that good designers understand business strategy. A bit like form follows function. He’s always asking clients questions. Stuff about policy and plans, brand values, purpose, aim and communication objectives, audiences and messages. In short, he wants to understand the foundations of your project. Like Wayne, James is a senior lecturer in Interactive Design.
James is a Senior Designer within the agency. His love is working on brands and pairing type with images. James can be a bit of a stickler, and he notices the tiniest detail. There’s isn’t much that gets by him. So we’ve put him in charge of quality control. He makes sure everything you get from us is perfect.
Mike is an allround graphic design man, working on websites and printed projects. But he’s hungry – he constantly wants to learn and absorb more design theory and techniques. He’s also a great communicator and problem solver, who enjoys pin-pointing the wants and needs of our clients.
Recent graduate from the University of Lincoln, Jason is learning our trade – like an apprentice, but he has already shown his gift for making beautiful work. Looking uncannily like our James Love, he also displays a methodical approach to problem solving.
Jez likes to think of himself as a bit of a joker. But does what it says on his label. Technical stuff. He’s an expert in HTML 5, CSS, WordPress and PHP, with more than ten years of experience. This enables him to turn ideas into sites that run ever so smoothly.
3D & Motion Designer
Fu hears sounds in his head. Noises that we couldn’t even dream of. And he’s got the rare ability to reproduce these sounds through new technology, for example in 3D sound installations. And, of course, he’s a dab hand at 3D animation, with exceptional control of the timeline.
You – and we – couldn’t do without Lorraine. She runs the office (and if she’s after something, we occasionally run away from her). She looks after the money side of things and she’s good with paperwork.
