Lynda Roberts – Studio Manager and Creative

  • Please explain your job in a nutshell
    My role is a combination of Studio Manager and Creative. As the Studio Manager, I run the diary, make sure my team has briefs to work on and keep an eye on the traffic coming in and out of the studio, as well as making sure our library of guidelines and information are up to date. The rest of my time is spent as a Creative working on new jobs and creative for print and web across the spectrum of our clients.
  • What’s the best part of what you do?
    When you’re working on a creative concept and you suddenly get ‘the idea’. You get a clear view in your mind of where you want the project to go, and importantly, how to get there!
  • What made you choose to be a Studio Manager?
    I’ve always been arty, art was always one of my favourite subjects at school, so it seemed inevitable that I’d end up doing something creative. After completing a degree in illustration, a move into a design role at a newspaper saw me start on the path of Studio Manager and I’ve never really looked back.
  • What advice would you give anyone wanting to be a Studio Manager?
    Stay creative, trust your ideas, and have confidence in what you produce.
  • What’s the best part of working at Denfield?
    Working with a great team of people certainly makes coming to work more enjoyable, as does working on a variety of projects.
  • If you weren’t a Studio Manager, what job would you like to do?
    Something to do with food, so probably a chef. I’m not sure I could cope with the hours though!
  • What’s your favourite pizza topping?
    I’m not a big pizza eater, but when I do I like to have all the veg; mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, sweetcorn, onion and chili.
