Introducing Richard, our Branding Development Manager, also known as the King of Signage.
Tell us a little bit about you.
I am one of the newest members of the team here at Imageco and I’ve just reached my first-year work anniversary which seems to have flown by!
My background is all things signage which has led the way for Imageco to explore into new market sectors. Over the last 12 months we have completed a high volume of varied signage projects all over the UK, some of which have been for highly confidential global brands.
I really enjoy my role here; I’m pretty much left to my own devices to do my thing. I’m very creative and get a real buzz supporting other companies with their branding so the set up works perfectly for me.
Outside of work I enjoy a good social event, outdoor activities and travelling overseas.
What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?
Whilst I would love to say I’m afraid I can’t disclose as I’m sworn to confidentiality agreements but let’s just say it’s got potential to be massive and could be a game changer for what becomes a regular day to day project for me here at Imageco.
Best thing about being in the Imageco office?
Without a doubt the can-do attitude from the team. Often, in this game, it can all turn to custard regardless of how much pre-planning and care goes into a project. We’re often on site with other trades, and things can suddenly change. It’s not about pointing the finger, we’ve got a handover to meet and I for one will not leave my clients with their head in their hands. When this occurs, I know the team have my back and are here to help pull out all the stops to ensure we can deliver. This plays a huge part in my success with continual orders, go team Imageco!
Give us one big change you can see coming in the industry in the next year.
Environmentally friendly alternatives – Whilst this is happening all the time, certainly here at Imageco it’s increasingly being talked about for everyone to do their part and amazingly it’s now really starting to catch on with the companies we would typically do business with.
Describe your job in three words.
Creative. Exciting. Diverse.
What did you want to grow up to be when you were a kid?
I always aspired to be a Police officer growing up, mainly influenced from close friends I see as family.
I guess I’ve always felt strongly about helping others. A little interesting fact, I did explore a career in the Police for 2-3 years. One day my creative side got the better of me and I’ve ended up doing something entirely different!
What’s your go-to drink at the pub?
Pint of lager!
If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would it be and why?
I’ve been fortunate enough to tick off quite a bit of travelling but haven’t seen a great deal of Europe. I’ve recently got into Motorbiking and would love to take a road trip on the bike through Europe, it’s on my travelling bucket list!
Give us your best piece of advice.
Don’t listen to the nay-sayers. Anything is possible if you give it everything you’ve got!
