I was lucky to be able to work as a project manager for a business that sourced and coordinated manufacturing in China. It managed the design, production and QA for small bespoke projects. I loved managing some beautifully designed items, such as wall decals, tutu cases, vintage car parts, t-shirts and ratchet straps. It was truly eye opening working with Chinese nationals who would be the eyes and ears of the company in the South of China and finding out about their lives. It was team effort for me to produce Quality Assurance documents and for the Chinese arm of the company to use to QA the new products. I loved the chance to learn about how to read a Pantone fan deck and calculate shipping costs.. Read all about it below from 2014.
