Hollie Shaw

Senior Project Manager

Close

ProfessionalPersonal

Organising stuff is in my DNA and I think I was always destined to be a Project Manager… Moving from non-digital project management to digital project management 6 years ago, I’ve been helping companies across a range of industries build great websites. As a project manager, I juggle all the moving parts, from understanding what clients need to seeing their website come to life. I try to speak both “tech” and “human,” so I can translate between designers, developers and marketing teams to make sure everything clicks. I love the concept of lifelong learning and I’m always open to new ways of doing things (especially if they make life easier and less stressful!).

“Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated.”
