An interview with...

Our very own Head of Design Marc!

MARC POLLINGTON - Head of Design, DZD

Here at DZD we are a close and busy team, so it's always nice when we get a chance to share a bit of our day to day lives with you all! This time we've been talking to Head of Design, Marc...

How long have you worked at DZD?

21 years.

Could you describe a day in the life of Marc?

I could but no two days are ever the same. I could be designing a scheme for a client, building a model, styling a photoshoot, laying out our catalogue or designing and advert, updating the website, training other members of the team and more...

What would you say is the best part about your job?

See above. It's certainly never dull.

What is the best thing about working in Central London?

It is so easy to get to other places from here.

You work for a creative company, are you creative outside of work?

I love gardening, and we have created a tropical garden in our small outer London space.

If you had to choose, what’s your one must have item from the DZD range?

I would like some of the giant LED festoon lights for the garden.

What skills are required in your position on a day-to-day basis?

Imagination, communication and understanding ...alongside Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, a sharp pencil and a lot of paper.

Which seasons of the year are toughest in your job?

The last 3 weeks of the year, it all goes a bit too quiet for me.
