I am Mick Coulter, operations/project manager for studios creating mobile apps and campaigns for advertising agencies.
My background is working for marketing and advertising agencies creating designs and visuals for print. Then moving into online grraphics and then apps for mobile. Early days of my career, I became a very young studio manager and director of operations for various agencies in and around London then headhunted to work in South Africa.
I have always loved technology and problem-solving. I am interested in Cryptocurrency, Blockchain Technologies, Smart contracts, 3D printing and have been using AutoDesk Fusion360. I appreciate useful well designed clean looking apps. My apps have always been designed with my mum in mind. If she can’t pick it up and understand and use it, then it’s no good.
Running studios and projects
From creating campaigns for advertising agencies to running mobile app projects as an app developer, it is always my goal to keep the project on track and on budget. Identifying the weak links whether they’re personal or technology constraints, I always deliver the project and manage clients expectations. Also when needed I can roll my sleeves up and get stuck into helping produce assets for a project using my accrued skills as a Ui Ux Designer.
I have spent a great deal of my career as a limited company freelancer, in some cases spent many years within the same organization. I understand this has been advantageous for both myself and the companies I have been working for. However, this has not allowed for career progression within an organization. I feel that I have a lot to offer within my skill sets and processes that I have seen, taken and adapted from other companies.
