How long have you been part of the Shape team?

Where’s that “it’s been 84 years…” gif when you need it! I started working for Shape whilst I was still at university so we go back a while now, and I wouldn’t change a thing. I’ve loved seeing Shape grow over the years whilst also developing my own skillsets along the way.

What's your favourite aspect of working at Shape?

The best thing is the close-knit environment. Our small team fosters an incredible atmosphere for collaboration, which I believe is one of the main factors in how we produce such quality work. We all get along so well — we even can put up with each other for ten hours in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales!

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Now retired from my triathlon days, I love living a more normal life of going out, eating great food, and drinking delicious beers. I still do the occasional bit of running, but only when I’m not hungover.

Which project was most satisfying for you to work on?

Most recently, I would have to say This Is Heard. A very fun and quirky site which is also informative and educational. Also, this sparkly new Shape website. I haven’t even built it while writing this, but I know it’s going to be a good one!

Why do you think clients should choose to work with Shape?

Our strength lies in the personal client relationships we build. As a small team, we engage with clients on a very attentive level. Plus, let's not forget — we're a bunch of genuinely nice folks who love what we do here.
