Employee Spotlight - Michael

So you can get to know all of our incredible team here at Centreline. We're doing a series of employee spotlights, this week it’s the turn of our Intern Michael, who's completing his year in industry with us.

What is your job role? In a nutshell what do you do?

I am one of two product design interns on my placement year at Centreline. My role consists of collaborating with the design team on a variety of projects at various stages of the design process. This means my work ranges from sketch-based concept design to CAD modelling, prototyping producing production visuals, etc.

What challenges you on a day to day basis?

The biggest challenge I face is time management. When undertaking university projects my philosophy was often to spend as much time as possible on each stage of the project, even when it really wasn’t necessary. Coming into industry where there is a quoted time to complete various tasks is quite the change of pace.

What’s the most useless/ interesting talent you have?

I can play careless whispers on the saxophone. I can also play other songs but careless whispers is the most important one.

Something new you’ve learned in the past month?

A lot of the new things I learn come from random questions that come up in conversation with my friends. This month I’ve learned that the term for hoofed mammals is Ungulates and the difference between fog and mist is that you can’t see further than 1000 metres in fog.

What do you do when you’re not at work?

Most days I do weightlifting at the gym, otherwise I try to go climbing and play squash as often as I can. When I’m not feeling like moving too much, I enjoy painting wargaming miniatures or crowding around a table with some friends to play board games.
