Take 5 with... Joe Wise

Joe Wise, or Wisey, has worked at Brandon for four years. He started as an intern straight from Sheffield Hallam (we’re full of ex Sheffield-ers at Brandon!), was mentored by Abi, our Creative Partner and offered a permanent role as Junior Designer in 2019. Joe is frequently top of our ‘Cheers For Peers’ employee recognition board.

What’s been your best Brandon moment?

Definitely a work do. We have loads but the one that sticks in my mind is one of the first Christmas ones – drinks and karaoke in a shed at while someone’s singing ‘All I Want For Christmas is You’.

What’s been your favourite thing to work on in 2022?

Creating a new identity for Bide – a sustainable cleaning brand. Bright illustrations, abstract style with bold colours and prints so really fun to work on, but also Bide’s social cause is just as key to the brand as it’s eco-friendly credentials so it was great to work on something that’s a worthy cause.

How would your colleague’s describe you in 5 words?

Helpful, attentive, creative, posh, kind – I hope that doesn’t sound conceited! (Note from Marketing Manager Lauren – I confirm this is exactly how Joe’s colleagues would describe him.)

What are your plans for 2023, in and out of work?

In work, I’d love to work on an alcoholic drinks brand. And out of work, finish moving into my house that I actually “moved in” to in November 2021.

And last but not least, what’s your favourite thing about working for Brandon?

It’s always been collaborative and not a competition. Everyone is in it together.
