Not a million miles away from the equivalent role in the world of filmmaking, a producer in design transforms a project from creative whimsy into real life, with planning skills that would put the most organised of spreadsheets to shame. Responsibility for timelines, budgets and staff workload often sit within their meticulous grasp, as does wringing out the best quality – and deals – from suppliers and collaborators, from paper factories to local councils. In some studios, a producer can also be part hype merchant, drumming up enthusiasm for a new project so that internal and external partners are all striving towards the same goal.
