A hive of creativity might be the best way to describe The Studio at Apple Print & Creative, for the industrious team here is buzzing with ideas. And that’s something to shout about.
Our graphic designers with the greatest of creative flairs are Jo Stace and Lucy Parnell. Jo Stace is Studio Manager and was already an experienced graphic designer when she joined Apple Print & Creative in 2012. Despite her energetic creativity, her calm and unflustered approach brings a sense of tranquillity to this fast-paced environment. There are two particular things Jo loves about her role – the variety of projects and the fact that she gets to work closely with other areas of the business. She says, ‘Every day is different and I enjoy having some projects that are print-related and others that have a digital focus. The fact that we all operate out of the same building is really beneficial – being able to pop down to the Print Room to discuss projects and ask for their opinions, for example. Similarly, having the web developers in The Studio makes for a great working relationship.’
On the web development side is Mark Slade. Software Developer Mark has been with Apple Print & Creative since 2011. He has over 20 years’ experience in website development alone, but has been involved with developing computer operated systems since the 1980s. He is expert at developing and maintaining websites for clients and relishes the challenges each project brings.
Working alongside Mark as Web Developer is James Douglas who, like Mark, loves the variety that working for a business the size of Apple Print & Creative brings. His role involves front end websites, mobile optimisation and user interfaces, all areas of growth for 21st-century clients.
Social Media and Marketing Assistant Sian Stacey came to Apple Print in 2015, bringing with her experience in digital marketing. More recently on board is Marketing Executive Annie Danielli. Both are valuable members of the team, developing interactions for clients on a wide variety of social media platforms.
A social secretary is a must in an organisation and we are lucky to have Sian who is always up for arranging social activities and celebrations … like our 30th birthday bash!
