Inside Marketing Design

S01E05 - Inside Marketing Design at Surrey satellite Technology (with Emily Kelly)

Episode Summary

Ever wondered about the role of a marketing designer at a space company? Hear from Emily Kelly about her work at a company that designs, builds & launches satellites.

Episode Notes

At Surrey Satellite Technology, Emily Kelly’s work is hugely varied: from internal posters, to event stand designs, to stickers that end up on rockets floating in low orbit! In this episode I chat with Emily about how she gets work done at a space company with such an extensive history and (spoiler alert) learn that things aren’t as different or as strict as I thought they would be.
