Meet the Team - Ross Cunningham

Role within Assembly:
Creative Director

What’s your favourite Assembly job you’ve worked on and why?
Currently working on a very exciting but confidential film project. The nature of the production enabled us to work for the first time with a choreographer and dance team.

What’s your favourite typeface / artist / building and why?
Typeface – Helvetica – I appreciate that’s the obvious choice but you can’t knock its versatility and longevity. Artist – William Eggleston – for his spontaneous compositions and for pioneering the use of colour in photography. Building – The Barbican – apart from the exhibitions and events, drifting around the building campus offers a rare and surreal moment of calm in the capital.

What’s your favourite thing to do on a weekend?
Taking my kids down to West Wittering beach for a paddle, followed by a healthy portion of fish & chips.

What’s your favourite dance-move?
The Zombie. Technically very challenging… a written explanation wouldn’t do it justice. I’ll have to show you sometime!

What’s your favourite place and why?
Haslemere – my current home town. One of the original founders of the national trust lived there and, as a result, the town is surrounded by acres of national trust forest parks and walks.

What makes you laugh out loud?
My kids’ re-enactments of pivotal Star Wars scenes, performed whilst on the trampoline (with lightsabers).

What makes you cry?
Show no weakness.

If you had to sum yourself up in 140 characters twitter style, what would you say?
Concise & efficient.
