Tactical Tim Interviews…The Arts & Crafts Department

Our Arts & Crafts department design our catalogues and adverts and is responsible for all things creative. Tactical Tim interviewed A&C, but then left the building so we snuck in a question or two of our own!



Give us an outline of what you do

A bit of this, a bit of that, and lots of walking around the office pretending to look busy. When I’m not doing that I also coordinate the IT and marketing department.

Career history

It’s varied…..stockbroker, pensions advisor, claims negotiator, pony-tailed bus driver, and 18 years working in the advertising arena

Ironman, Batman or Superman?

It’s got to be superman. Any excuse to wear my underwear on the outside of my trousers

You do a lot of photo shoots with Tactical Tim – Is it true you airbrush out a significant beer belly?

Due to client confidentiality I am unable to comment, however should you bribe me with a cheeky cider…….

What products have you been given to photograph/advertise and thought ‘Ooh, I wouldn’t mind one of these’?

Anything from the Tactical Torch range – Men and torches!

Do you get to try out any of the products?

Only when no one is watching

Who has the best ideas?


How much is that doggy in the window?

Considerably more than the horse in the burger

As a creative type you should be able to think outside the box, can you solve this:

Using only FOUR straight lines and WITHOUT lifting the pen off the paper, connect all 9 dots


Will you lend me £50.00?

Sure will…….As soon as I’ve got a kickback from Tony for saying he has the best ideas


Talking of dogs in windows, we couldn’t resist this photo…..
