GOOD THINGS COME IN FOURS

Four more new starters? That can only mean one thing at Drummond Central – an all-revealing, soul-searching inquiry.

First braving the firing line, Emma Collings, our all-new Account Executive:

What are you most looking forward to about working at DC?

I’m looking forward to starting my career in advertising in a fun, animated environment. Our clients have got great projects coming up, and it’s really exciting to be involved in them!

Name one thing you could not live without?

I couldn’t live without my speaker – I can’t do anything in silence so a portable speaker is a must so I can play podcasts or music around the house.

You have unlimited financing to invent the most ridiculous thing you can think of, what do you make?

I’d create a transportation device so I could go to any gig in the world, whenever I wanted.

What’s the best TV advert you’ve ever seen and why?

The Cadbury gorilla/eyebrow adverts are the first adverts I saw that I remember sparking conversation with my family and friends – and failed attempts to wiggle my eyebrows – I was only 10/11 at the time and never got bored of them coming on during the ad breaks!

Luke Robinson, our new Back End Developer, had some envy-inducing stories to tell:

What are you most looking forward to about working at DC?

Looking at DC's projects and list of accolades it goes without saying that the team are all super talented, so I'm really looking forward to being a part of the gifted group here and soaking up some of that talent to produce great quality digital output.

What’s the first gig you ever went to?

My first proper gig was the NME Awards Tour with The Killers headlining. We all ran into the venue to get right to the front, squeezed against the barrier. It was absolutely mind blowing and we stuck around to meet the band afterwards. They didn't have too much time to sign everybody's stuff so the drummer invited us to the aftershow party! Needless to say the bar was set extremely high for all future gigs.

What’s your favourite movie genre and why?

Having a 2 year old means I almost exclusively watch children's films now (which I'm actually secretly enjoying).

If you could be in any Christmas movie, which would it be and why?

Let's say Jingle All the Way, just so I could get my hands on that Turbo-Man doll.

Being fresh to the advertising industry, we made sure to find out all the juicy details we could from our new Finance Manager, Imogen Cothill: 

What are you most looking forward to about working at DC?

I’m most looking forward to getting stuck in with a totally new industry, along with getting to know everyone who works at DC, they've all been so welcoming. 

What is your current favourite TV show and why?

The Crown, who doesn't love a bit of drama. 

Of all the problems in the world, which one would you like to see solved first?

Child Food Poverty, it still shocks me how this is happening in today's world.

If you could go for a drink with a celebrity, who would it be and why?

(May not be a celebrity to everyone) but it has to be Rosie Ramsey. After seeing her instagram posts of her nights out, who wouldn't want to go out with her! 

And last but not least, it’s our new Junior Motion Graphics Designer, Brandon Saunders:

What are you most looking forward to about working at DC? 

I look forward to enhancing my understanding of 3D softwares and their application in the world of marketing. 

What is the one song that will make you get up and dance, and why? 

The Polish national anthem has to be up there. Good bop, well-written, and a great song for karaoke. 

Who inspires you the most? 

Bjork. I would sell my soul to see her live. 

Which fictional character would be most interesting to meet in real life? 

That’s a great question but I’m not sure. Maybe Jennifer Coolidge? I know she’s real but she feels like a character to me. My aunt is a flight attendant and she actually met her on a flight. The other flight attendant almost fainted by the sheer gaggery of the situation.
