Meet the #MOOcrew: Javier, Product Designer

Our MOOcrew are a pretty wonderful bunch. Want to know what it’s like to work with us? Take a peek at a typical day at our HQ.

Javier Ferrer

Hi, I’m Javier, I work in the Product Design Team and I’ve been at MOO for a year now.

At MOO, I’m responsible for…

The design and innovation of new physical products. MOO is a print company, so lots of our work involves finding the best quality papers and experimenting with different materials. When I’m given a brief to create a new product or develop an existing one, the first thing I do is focus on the problem we want to solve, and really get under the skin of how the product works. Then I can start thinking about ideas

I got my role at MOO by…

Winning over my team during my interview with a presentation of innovative packaging!

My morning routine is…

Begins with a treacherous bicycle commute dodging the London traffic, followed by a lot of coffee.

A typical working day is…

Sketching, updating myself on design news, more sketching, a bit of 3d modelling and the occasional cup of coffee.

Something people don’t know about my role is…

That creating a great design is only half the battle – it’s also very important how you present your idea, so we need to sell it in the right way.

My proudest moment at MOO was…

When I solved my first packaging problem.

The thing I like most about working at MOO is…

The great variety of people working here…and the free Friday lunches!

On the weekend, you’ll find me…

Scouting out the many green areas of London with my dog Mango (who’s also a MOO office regular!).

If I wasn’t doing this as a career, I’d be…

An architect! Or when I was younger I really thought I’d be playing the drums in a band.

The best career advice I’ve ever been given…

Is don’t fall in love with your first concept or idea, the best is yet to come!

Stay tuned. We’ll keep hosting guest blogs from one of our crew across the business to tell you what it’s really like to work at MOO HQ. Up next, we’ve got Sona, our Marketing Project Manager.
