Our Senior Artworker, Chris Batt, recently hit his 10-year anniversary at Ponderosa and the gang wanted to ask him some burning questions to commemorate this milestone. And boy, did they deliver! Here are some of the highlights:
A: The yearly ABI brochure was definitely the hardest project I have worked on. It was a massive undertaking and took a lot of graft, teamwork and collaboration with the client.
A: Don’t sweat the small stuff – have fun with it!
A: No contest – the butcher in the market sells the best pork pie in town.
A: If you’re after a pint on a budget, you can’t go wrong with The Palace.
A: This is a tough one. I think I would invite Jesus, Adolf Hitler, Margaret Thatcher, Oscar Wilde, George Orwell, Abraham Lincoln, Bernie Sanders, Gandhi, Keir Hardie, and Joan of Arc. It would be an interesting mix of people with very different perspectives.
A: Keep breathing! But seriously, stay curious and never stop learning.
A: My proudest moment at Ponderosa was working on the Crabbie’s Grand National branding. It was a massive project, and it was great to see it come to life.
A: (laughs) That would depend on the mood of the day and how much drink had been taken – take that how you want.
A: Apart from a paper round, I worked as a studio junior doing artwork at a place called Hewitt Taylors.
A: Climbing trees and building dens was the dream.
We want to thank Chris for his dedication to our team for the last 10 years, and all the entertainment he provides along the way!
