In this edition of Workflow, we have Digital & Production Marketing Manager Vivian Wong talking about the tools she uses to run her freelance creative business.
Describe what you do: I have been working in a Marketing role for over 10 years, focusing on Digital and Social Media Marketing and Video Content Creation. I worked in numerous corporate roles and currently work Part-Time for Channel 44 and also run my freelance business VDigital Creative that has taken me on many client adventures from remote Tennant Creek, in the Northern Territory to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia and more!
How do you like your coffee: Skim flat white, no sugar please!
Device(s) you use: In the office: Apple iMac Desktop, at home my MacBook Pro, and on the go my Samsung Note 10+ (ironically not Apple!)
Describe your working style in one sentence: My day starts off with coffee (very important!), mornings are my most productive so it is responding to emails, team meetings and planning then I tend to get into my project work in the late afternoon such as editing and throughout the day there are constant calls, emails, admin to follow up on.
What does your workspace look like: In the office, a nice quiet desk with a 27-inch Apple iMac Computer and at home I end up with my MacBook laptop on the dining table. I do have a separate room for my office at home but my 1-year-old likes to have me in his line of sight!
How does your workspace affect your creative process: I believe a cluttered desk will equal a cluttered mind – it literally stresses me out! So in order to ensure productivity, I like a nice clean workspace to start with and there is nothing nicer than fresh flowers or a leafy potted plant to add some colour and freshness to spark my creative vision!
Do you have a favourite playlist for work: I tend not to listen to music when I’m working as I might be editing but I end up listening to some cool tracks to use and download from Artlist.io.
Who would you like to nominate for the next workflow interview: My friend and ex-work colleague, Jess!
