Joss is a Senior Project Manager and one of the Bristol-based cool kids at Illustrate Digital. He’s responsible for getting everything in order, keeping projects to time and budget, as well as communicating and planning with our brilliant clients to make sure we’re meeting their needs.
The role of Project Manager for a UX and development team isn’t a straightforward one, but Joss is great at making things work and keeping motivation high across the range of projects happening at any one time. If you’re working with us and thinking to yourself “hmm, this all seems a lot easier than I was expecting it to be,” that’s probably because Joss is gracefully dousing fires and making it all look pretty easy, all with the aim of keeping clients at ease and taking the weight off their hands!
Joss joined us with a great deal of experience working with digital and agency teams, handling multiple projects and multiple clients, which makes him a perfect fit for leading with the day-to-day of producing great work. We’ve got some incredible processes that make sure we get stuff done to a high level of quality and it’s Joss’s job to make sure these processes are water tight, ever-improving and that everyone is following them. There are good things to be said about a hands-on project manager and you’ll normally find Joss running huddles and project catch-ups, chatting through the fine details of a project and getting ready to feed back to a client on how their work is coming along.
Outside of work Joss is a music fanatic and his love for all things rock’n’roll have seen him travel the UK and the world gigging and organising events. These days you’ll find him DJ’ing in and around Bristol in the weekends where he’s the resident at some well-known venues. You can’t miss his unique style and bright character, so if you bump into him on a night out in Bristol then be sure to say hello!
