New starts join Screenmedia

Alex | 11/07/2018

We sat down with Andrea and George to discover what they do and how they relax outside of work.

Andrea - UX Planner

In 140 characters, what exactly do you do?

I take a design thinking approach to understand user needs and business goals to create the best solution…I am an empathetic problem solver.

Previous experience...

After completing my RIBA Part 2 in architecture, I moved into UX design via a Masters in Software Development. I then worked in London as a UX Designer and Service Designer for the commercial and government sectors.

Why Screenmedia?

I discovered Screenmedia when I was at university and I knew I wanted to work here. Their approach to design and award winning work is inspiring. Having listened to friends confirm what an amazing place it was to work, I waited patiently for an opportunity to come up and finally make my escape back to Glasgow.

Oddest job…

I was a bat catcher for a couple of summers in upstate New York. Not my main job title whilst I was there, but something I had to do more frequently than you would expect.

On the nightstand…

Handmade lamp, Echo Dot, half full cup of tea and latest book that I'm trying to find time to read. 

In my spare time I like…

You will usually find me boarding (depending on the season it’ll be on a snowboard, wakeboard or surfboard), on the badminton court, making something crafty or baking something tasty.

Favourite tune on the office Sonos…

I’m happy listening to most things, I did hear Awesome Mix Vol. 2 (Guardians of the Galaxy) on there the other day and got pretty excited, I love that soundtrack!

Weirdest fact about me…

I have mild papyrophobia (I used to wear long sleeves and put them over my hands so my skin wouldn't have to touch the paper when I was writing...I try harder to disguise my weirdness now)

 

 

George - Creative Content Manager

In 140 characters, what exactly do you do?

A mixture of overseeing marketing and campaign outputs and creating that all important content. 

Previous experience...

Worked as a creative in advertising and digital agencies in Glasgow, New York and London for a huge array of brands.

Why Screenmedia?

I'd heard so many good things but didn't know anyone that worked there. A friend of mine started and confirmed the positive rumours, so when a job came up I thought I'd go for it. The work here is definitely different and much more varied than what you usually get in Scotland too.

Oddest job…

Working as a "phone-bidder" for an international wristwatch auction company.

On the nightstand…

A glass of water, a digital radio and some books.

In my spare time I like…

You can pretty much find me out running and training for some race. I also go to lots of gigs and art openings – where I pretend I know what I'm looking at and if it's good or not.

Favourite tune on the office Sonos…

Anything with a Northern Soul slant, Americana, High-Life, Alt-Country or Japanese psych-rock. Or King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. Or the Silver Jews. To be fair, I put the last band on.

Weirdest fact about me…

I can't whistle.
