a week with the smack bang team – Jamie

Each one of team members play an important role in keeping this well-oiled machine, not only running but churning out brilliant ideas and projects on the reg. In our ‘meet the team’ series, we give you a little more insight into the talented folk that make up our Smack Bang family. 

My name is Jamie and my mum would say I’m a whirlwind of energy but I think I’m just inquisitive. The first thing I do when I wake up is have cuddles with my two dogs Cash and Rex. At the end of the day I cook dinner for my beautiful boyfriend; I like trying new recipes and always keep it interesting. My favourite thing about my job is meeting so many exciting and diverse businesses at different stages of development. I also love working with the team here at Smack Bang.

What do you do at SBD? I’m an Account Manager, which means I get to see all the amazing work from our designers before anyone else does (and make sure it lands in the clients lap on time).

If you weren’t doing that, what would you be doing? Since art school, I have always had a passion for sculpture; I would probably be in a leaky old workshop making huge sculptures and drawing with charcoal, while drinking way too much coffee.

You’re on a desert island and can only listen to one album for the rest of your days. Which one is it? Do they not have Spotify on desert islands? My music taste changes so much depending on how I’m feeling. Right now, I love the new ‘Years and Years’ album.

What’s your weekend ritual? My perfect weekend would consist of waking up and taking the dogs out for a long walk and grabbing a coffee. Then I would cook a breakfast that’s half English (English bacon, eggs, hash browns, HP sauce) and half Australian (avocado, spinach, but no beef sausages – yuck!). Then I would spend the rest of the day catching up with friends and exploring the city. If I’m not in Sydney I will be on the Coast visiting my boyfriend’s family. I feel very drawn to the coast – it always seems to calm me.

What’s the best choice you’ve made so far in life? Packing my bags and getting on a one-way flight from my home in the UK to Australia. I didn’t even pack a jacket. I thought it was hot all year long and didn’t rain- I was so young and naïve! I have been here for 6 years now, and I haven’t looked back. I’ve also bought a jacket.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why? To be able to eat anything and never gain weight. Hyper metabolism – is that a super power? It should be.

Coffee order? Definitely a 3/4 latte or an espresso. Or both at the same. Did I mention I love coffee?

If you weren’t living in Sydney, where would you choose and why? I would be in Berlin. It’s a little closer to England (yes another pommie) and the city has such an amazing vibe. I love the art scene, the history and of course, the beer.
