Rinsed people: Josh
For the second in our ‘Rinsed people’ series, we’re talking to our very latest recruit, Josh, who has this month joined the team as a technical events manager. Welcome aboard Josh!
I’m a Technical Events Project Manager here at Rinsed Studio, meaning I look after all facets of projects the agency is currently delivering, with a focus on the technical and gadget side of things. Currently I’m working on the Microsoft Tech Lounge program which is challenging but very exciting.
What’s your background?
I’m a jack-of-all-trades kind of guy, with a variety of experience in marketing roles. Most recently I was a social media and events Manager for VIM Media & Events where I expanded my knowledge of the most important aspects of event management and PR. Through VIM I was able to start working on projects for Rinsed until eventually I became a full-time member of the family!
Your career must have been be pretty varied. What’s the most unusual thing you’ve ever had to do in the field of duty?
Well, in a previous job, one of our social media clients was a local lingerie designer. Creating a campaign around their product was eye-opening to say the least.
What’s been the coolest project you’ve worked on this year?
By far it would have to be the Xbox stand at EB Expo. I’m a gamer at heart and working on one of the show’s biggest stands with the best upcoming games was simply amazing. Among other tasks it was my job to give the briefs for the upcoming shooter “Titanfall”, one of the most hotly-anticipated games of 2014 and already a record breaker. What a game!
What’s the last campaign from a brand you’ve seen that’s really made you go ‘wow’?
Easily the “Baby&Me” campaign from mineral water producer Evian. Check it out here:
Have you got a dream client that you’d just love to work with?
I’ve got two big passions, gaming and cars. Since I’m already lucky enough to have done work for Xbox I’d love to work with the likes of Ferrari or Porsche. That would be awesome.
Tell us something about yourself that will surprise us.
I used to do eSports commentary. This meant I provided play-by-play commentary for a competitive video game that was being broadcast live over the internet. It’s a niche but was actually a lot of fun! There’s probably a YouTube recording of me somewhere…
What’s the last track you listened to on your iPod?
What’s the last movie you saw?
Kick-Ass 2 – very funny and very wrong!
