Introducing the Brandrefinery Team

This is a very special blog, as we introduce to you the Brandrefinery team. I thought I would make it slightly more interesting than the run of the mill ‘About Us’ blogs. Instead of a picture and paragraph of what they do, I have tasked each member with answering 3 questions. They are designed specifically to find out their true personalities. And I must say, we do have some interesting personalities in this bunch.

 

Charlotte – Communications Executive

 

What is your favourite crowdfunding campaign?

The PancakeBot (Kickstarter). I love art and cooking, so finding a campaign that combines them both is amazing! Plus, who doesn’t like pancakes? Everyone obviously, as it smashed its goal of $50,000 to get $450,000. The sad part is it only ships in the USA.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

A spy. I was determined that I was going to be working at MI6 by the time I was 14. I even looked at getting work experience there…They didn’t have any spaces.

 

 

How would you describe the Brandrefinery team?

An incredibly friendly and honest bunch. It’s such a great working environment that even when you first start working here it’s like you’ve known everyone for months.

 

 

 

Dan- Campaign Executive

What is your favourite crowdfunding campaign?

Indivisible (Indiegogo) This Campaign launched with a fully-playable, free downloadable prototype.  A splendid proof of concept to prefix one of the higher Indiegogo funding goals.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

As a budding artist from an early age and growing up around the boom of 3D video games (Crash Bandicoot, Tekken, Tomb Raider), the sheer whimsy and fascination of it all meant that I original had my sights set on being a Video Game Designer.

 

How would you describe the Brandrefinery team?

There’s a surprisingly homely atmosphere around the office.  Friendly & understanding, helps to create the right ambience from which we get to craft material that’s truly meaningful.

 

 

 

 

Kelly- Campaign Manager

 

What is your favourite crowdfunding campaign?

Purple® Pillow: The World’s First No-Pressure Pillow I have a love for any chocolate that is in a purple wrapping. I also appreciate any product that is environmentally friendly. This pillow is the same colour as Cadbury’s, made from garbage. Perfect.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

When I was young I wanted to work in a sewage works. I was amazed by the fact that raw sewage could go in one end, then at the other end came something clean enough to drink! I hadn’t considered the smell that accompanies the sites though.

 

How would you describe the Brandrefinery team?

I would describe the Brandrefinery team as a young, varied team of individuals who work hard to achieve the best results for their clients and support each other in the process.

 

 

 

Richard- Founder

 

What is your favourite crowdfunding campaign?

A shotgun you can use safely at home that kills flies? Yes please! It’s got to be BugASalt on the Indiegogo platform. This campaign grabbed my attention way back in 2012 before I was immersed in the crowdfunding world, it has remained stuck in my mind ever since as a go to reference on what crowdfunding is all about. The campaign video is about as authentic as it get’s and displays a great concept backed with passionate, almost fanatical, execution.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

Older!

 

How would you describe the Brandrefinery team?

Awesome! They are a committed & passionate bunch that care about the projects they work on – there’s a strong teamwork ethic in place that helps us to all pull together to deliver, often under a lot of pressure and against the clock!

 

 

Sam- Campaigns Director

 

What is your favourite crowdfunding campaign?

Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls (Kickstarter).

This book rejects the traditional bedtime story format of princess marries prince and lives happily ever after. Instead It focuses on stories of real-life heroines from historic figures to modern day inspirational women -many of whom you will not have heard of!

As a mother to 3 young girls, I love that this book gives them relatable role models, while also teaching them how lucky they are to have the freedoms they do.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

When I was young, I wanted to be a lawyer. I have a law degree but soon found the reality isn’t as exciting as they portray it in the movies!

 

How would you describe the Brandrefinery team?

I would describe our team as varied -we each bring a different talent and perspective to the team, which is essential given the diversity of the projects that we work on.

 

 

 

Tom- Campaign Leader

 

What is your favourite crowdfunding campaign?

My favourite crowdfunding campaign is probably Exploding Kittens on Kickstarter. While I did not personally back it, while travelling my friends and I got stranded after our coach broke down. Luckily, we had enough signal to download the app and we kept ourselves amused for a few hours while waiting for our new coach to arrive.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

I wanted to be everything. From an Astronaut to an archaeologist to a biologist, I wanted to be it all. I grew up watching movies and so depending on whether I was watching Back to the Future or Indiana Jones, changed what I wanted to be that day.

 

How would you describe the Brandrefinery team?

A hive-mind of similar individuals. We work so well together that we can sometimes have entire conversations without saying a word, we just know what needs to be done.
