Working in the creative industries can surely be odd enough at times, but to add an extra dollop of the ludicrous and surreal is Chris (Simpsons Artist), who’s helpfully depicted how ten creative roles really pan out. Often worryingly accurate (see production runner making tea, illustrator who has “left it to the last minute”) and always hilariously strange, the series was commissioned by creative industries network Hiive and gives a nice gentle rib tickle to graphic designers, who may or may not spend all day using a Wacom to scroll about over images of sausages.
