The founder of Doquier, Andrew, is an audiovisual designer and journalist with experience in many fields (and places around the world!).
He worked in-house at studios and agencies, but as a freelancer he found the freedom to become a jack-of-all-trades. The few times his clients approached him with needs that couldn’t fulfill due to a lack of time or expertise, he immediately thought of colleagues that would make a perfect fit for specific tasks in some projects.
The idea to share work with colleagues had a couple of issues: His clients trusted him as the main contact when it came to creative and technical aspects and either weren’t keen on dealing with more people, or they just didn’t speak the same language.
His worldwide expertise allowed him to become a facilitator between the client and his colleagues, a hands-on producer that deals with the communication on both sides taking an active role to avoid unnecessary extra steps in the workflow.
