Here at ICE, we believe everyone is unique and as an extension of that.. so is their desk! We’ve decided to showcase one members desk each week to highlight both the differences and similarities that make ICE such a diverse place to work!
ICE member & company details
Charlotte Williams & Creatables
What do you do?
Head of Marketing which involves a bit of everything really. Social Media Management, SEO, Adwords, Web Development, Graphic Design, Content Write-ups and Kickstarter Project Management of course! My favourite thing to do is WordPress and Crowdfunding (Kickstarter), as I am particularly talented at them!
Which room are you in?
We have our own Creatables Office just off Reception. It’s the one with the noisy 3D Printer, that sounds a bit like a robot.
What’s the current status of your desk? Is it neat & tidy or ‘organised chaos’?
Hmm… Would have to say Tidy, But by the time I reach Friday it’s organised Chaos. I seem to collect things throughout the week like a Magpie!
Mac or PC?
PC, although I have a great hate for Windows 8.
What other hardware do you use?
Countless USB’s to back up our work, and 3D Printers of course!
What software do you use?
We use lots of Software in our office, including most Adobe packages and the standard Microsoft packages, to CAD, SketchUp and design-based stuff. To help my job I use Hootsuite, Mail Chimp, Google Analytics and Producteev (Task Management Software).
What’s your drink of choice while working?
Black Coffee, No sugar – Mostly a morning drink, to wake me up from my zombie-fied state.
Do you listen to music while you work? If so, what?
Yes I do constantly, and it depends on the day. Rock Mondays are my favourite, for the upmost motivation. Much love for ACDC! Although it can take a chilled out vibe during the week.
What personal/professional keepsakes do you keep on your desk?
I have plenty of stuff printed off from our 3d Printer, including cork-animals, an elastic band ball and a real-life to-scale replica of a human skull (creepy I know). I also have a Bulbasaur plant pot – with cactus and the peas from Toy Story. Lets not forget my coffee cup and stash of Eyeliner, sharpies and lip gloss. What every Business Woman needs!
What about toys or fun stuff?
You wouldn’t believe how distracting it is being in an office with 3D Printers, 3d Scanners and awesome people! Things can go off topic very quickly.
What’s your favourite thing about your desk?
I’m in the corner by the window, which means I get the breeze in summer-time, and I can choose to turn round and be sociable, or be un-sociable and stay staring at my computer in my work/music zone. Basically my desk is in prime day dreaming position.
