It’s been so nice amidst home working and lockdown, to welcome two new team members.

Ella graduated from Plymouth University with a first class (she won’t tell you that part!) degree in Architectural Technology. Her enthusiasm for working on live projects and getting stuck in has been a delight for us to see.

She has mainly been enjoying building the models in Sketchup, and finds this an exciting part of the design process because it is when ‘you first see a building come to life and help people fully imagine themselves in the space’.

Dan, Head of Operations, said in the last 4 months since she has joined us, Ella has ‘shown great initiative taking ownership of projects, liaising with clients and has gained the technical ability, and management of workflow to suit, which is incredible after this short amount of time’.

Ella has been using lockdown to not only perfect her modelling skills but also mastering tricks on her roller skates – being the third in the office to obtain skates, we are hoping that by the end of the year we may be able to get a couple of others on board and form a troupe!

Our newest edition is another Plymouth graduate, but this time in Interior Design, Decorating and Styling. His role as junior designer in the team is an exciting one, meaning we can offer his skills not only to our in-house 3D creatives, but also to clients to conduct briefings.

Cesar is passionate about ‘creating’ so will fit right in with the team of artists and graphic designers! We are looking forward to getting to know him more when we move back into the office with his stash of comic books!

Jack, Director, says Cesar ‘really adds to our process, focusing on the design of the interior, leaving the artists to focus on the visualisation branch of the business. He works closely with the team and has already helped us to level up in this area.’ When asked why he chose Cesar to join the team, he said ‘his portfolio was very unique, with stunning work that was structured and well laid out, which fitted with exactly what we needed when looking to power-up our internal efficiency even more.’

It’s a tricky time to be joining a team when working remotely, especially a tight knit one at that. But as we found with Emily and Marie joining last year, it is still possible to welcome, support and  learn from each other and create amazing work, as this Archilime ‘collective’.
