In this edition of Workflow, we have Emily May Gunawan, Content Producer at iD Collective, talking about how she juggles multiple creative roles in a day.
Describe what you do: As with many creative departments, my role is quite fluid. I juggle many different roles – as a photographer, content producer, digital designer and copywriter. I definitely feel that each feeds the others, and helps me grow more substantially than I would have otherwise. I always say that if you’re a creative, that can apply to a wide range of disciplines.
How do you like your coffee: Flat white. No sugar.
Device(s) you use: MacBook Pro, Google Pixel, Canon EOS R. I’ve also been playing around with Canon AF35m lately for some film shots.
Describe your working style in one sentence: As an early rise, I like to do my thinking work in the morning, when my head is clearer and the world is still quiet.
What does your workspace look like: Clean and very minimal. With the whole WFH situation, my holy grail would be a portable desk that I can move around the house depending on my moods/needs. Your space can be whatever you make of it.
How does your workspace affect your creative process: To minimise distractions and clutters, I only put the essentials that I absolutely need to work with during the day. And definitely, music! It keeps my mind feeling fresh and exciting.
Do you have a favourite playlist for work: I like to discover new music daily and NTS Radio does a solid job of curating playlists. I’m really digging their Poolside infinite mixtapes lately.
Who would you like to nominate for the next workflow interview: Sally Ann – my sister and creative partner at sallyemily.com.
