Over this series, we'll be introducing each member of the Welford team so that you can get to know each person who'll be working on your project. First up is Abby; our Operations Manager. Abby's been with Welford for over five years, so it's safe to say she knows the company like the back of her hand. With a background in TV and film, Abby's wide range of skills and experience make her perfect for ensuring that both the office and projects run smoothly.
Getting to Know Abby
What made you want to work in this industry? I've always been interested in the creative industry as I studied TV & Film production, so working in the web industry and seeing all these beautiful websites we help put live really makes me happy.
Favourite thing to do on a day off? I love going exploring with my camera, anywhere with beautiful scenery and/or animals I will be there!
What's one item you really couldn't live without? My lip balm, has the potential to ruin my day if I have forgotten one. Must keep those dry lips at bay!
We've worked on hundreds of websites over the last 13 years, do you have any favourites? Mr Sherick's Shakes. I love all the different animations on the site, it's so fun! It was made a few years ago as well so just goes to show how a good design can be ageless.
Which bar or restaurant would you always recommend? Drinks wise, George's Great British Kitchen. Their sweet shop cocktails are the stuff dreams are made of! Food wise, Qubana in Wakefield. Best. Tapas. Ever.
Go-to karaoke song? So I've never actually done Karaoke, but when I'm home alone I will perform to "I Dreamed A Dream" from Les Miserables like I'm a star on the west-end.
What's a software or tool you couldn't work without? Asana, being able to keep check of what needs to be done for each project and making sure it's organised is a massive part of what I do.
Most importantly... cats or dogs? Dogs. All the way!
Thanks Abby! We'll be posting more Meet the Team blogs over the coming months, check back soon to learn more about our team and life at Welford!
