Meet the Makers
Senior Product Design Manager
Get to know the faces behind the brand with our Meet the Makers Q&A. Whether it’s our designers, accountants or sales guys, we’ve asked the team some probing questions to give you an insight into how we work at Joseph Joseph. This week it’s Senior Product Design Manager Ollie’s turn…
What’s the best bit about your job?
Working with some of the best designers to create brilliantly useful products that look beautiful as well.
What’s the oddest thing you’ve had to do in your role at Joseph Joseph?
This was less of a role and more of a voluntary embarrassment. At the last Christmas party a number of us performed to the entire company an original adaptation of The Nativity called Mary and Joseph Joseph. I was dressed as a neon lit Wiseman and we all stumbled through our lines like we were back at school. It was great fun!
All-time favourite Joseph Joseph product?
It would have to be the new Dot hydration bottle (pictured). It helps me drink more water which has many health benefits and is the first product we have created that’s a lifestyle accessory used outside of the kitchen.
What would you choose for your last meal?
I love Italian and Moroccan food as they remind me of some really amazing holidays with my family. I would probably start with a classic Italian bruschetta with tomato and basil, followed by a chicken, lemon and olive tagine for my main and finishing with a vanilla panna cotta with fresh berries and an espresso.
Favourite TV show right now?
I just binged on Fleabag. Dark but very funny! Fargo is great too.
Any guilty pleasures?
Great British Bake Off would have to be the current guilty pleasure and I blame my girlfriend for that!
I couldn’t live without…
That’s easy, my bikes and Lycra!
