WHAT IS THE CREATIVE COMMUNITY LIKE IN SOUTH WALES? DO YOU FIND A LOT OF YOUR WORK LOCALLY OR DO YOU TEND TO WORK ON PROJECTS ON A MORE NATIONAL SCALE?
There’s some great work being done here in South Wales and some great people to collaborate and share experiences with. Though it’s a small place so there’s a lot of competition and not always friendly rivalry. Generally we’re working on a lot of local projects at the moment though we are always looking to work further afield.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOUSELF AND THE STUDIO FURTHER DOWN THE LINE IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS?
I’d like to see the studio grow naturally and I’d like to keep the team small, so we don’t lose touch with what we’re working on. I’ll always remain as a very hands on creative director. In terms of the work we’re doing, responsive web is where I think we’re going at the moment. Longer term than that, I’d love to set up a satellite office overseas at some point.
