…What a picture.
Allot of my recent blog posts have been focused on China, there is such a huge selection of things I want to post about, there may not be enough time!
I thought the design/creative side was getting neglected so here's a post about my work over here in Shanghai.
I'm a Designer and Product Manager for Made.com, as it's a relatively new start up I've had the opportunity to add some extra strings to my bow alongside design and working with factories.
One of the other elements of my role has become orchestrating the Made new product photo and video shoots, in the last year it's expanded from 20 products a shoot to a mammoth 166 items on the most recent shoot.
An 8 day marathon shoot was quite daunting at the beginning, but we made it through and got some great images of our new products due to be launched on the website soon.
So hears a sneaky peak of the behind the scenes of how the magic happens!
