Production Manager

“The story of my life is Whitenoise. But I wouldn’t have it any other way!”

With a background in PR and Media Relations with a large Belfast-based agency, Joanne relished her new role within a fledging Whitenoise when she joined in 2002. Almost 13 years on, her knowledge of all things print-related is unsurpassed and she loves nothing more than talking with print suppliers, paper manufacturers and specialist finishing houses. Her understanding and grasp of how client requirements have changed over the years has given a cutting edge to the production department in determining the next ’new’ thing and where to source it from. 

When you phone the studio, Joanne’s voice will quite possibly be the one you will hear. Along with her co-conspirator Alix, Joanne manages the production department as well as front of house and in fact anything else that isn’t directly designed! Her job description is ever evolving. From liaising with suppliers, initial client quotations, managing client budgets and timescales to scheduling projects, monitoring workflow in the studio and sourcing the weird and wonderful for all levels of budgets, her tenacity and determination to find solutions knows no bounds. She has even sourced and shipped a Renault gearbox for a client in Cyprus! She is a fan of planning for the unforeseen and consistently manages to find solutions to issues quickly, with minimum client stress and a smile on her face! 

As a qualified sailor, Joanne can be found frequently complaining about her leaking waterproofs after particularly lively crossings in Belfast Lough - such experiences however leave her well qualified to handle a bunch of unruly designers.
