Q&A: Chloe Johnson Studio and production administrator, PMG Print Management
Monday, September 3, 2018
Chloe is 23 years old and has worked in print for 5 years. She has a two-year-old daughter who’s “a little whirlwind” and her hobbies include attending car shows
What is your nickname?
Why did you get into printing?
I studied graphic design at Batley School of Art & Design. I started looking at apprenticeships and the role PMG was offering fitted quite nicely, as I had the knowledge from my studies. Here I am five years later!
What would be your dream job?
I’d have loved to have been a dancer
Who would play you in a movie about your life?
Possibly Joey King, a young American actor. A lot of the films she’s starred also put her in awkward situations.
What would you most like to print?
I love the idea of 3D printing, I’d like to be involved in a project where I can oversee how it works
What is your favourite film?
Pitch Perfect, I could watch it over and over
What is your favourite TV programme?
Hollyoaks. I love a good soap
Sweet or savoury?
Definitely sweet, my favourite would be millionaire shortbread
Who or what do you hate the most?
Baked beans. A lot of people find this strange, but I can’t stand them. My colleagues laugh as I would quite happily eat a tin of spaghetti hoops.
What is your favourite album?
X by Ed Sheeran
What book are you reading at the moment?
The Unmumsy Mum which is based on a blog from a real mum and how it really is after having a baby
Cat or dog, or…?
Cats, I love how laid back they are. We’ve also had our cat, Ginger, since I can remember
What is your greatest luxury in life?
Owning my own house and having my own little family
Who would you like to be stuck on a desert island with?
Other than my family, it would have to be someone that could make me laugh. Possibly Rebel Wilson
What is your greatest ambition?
To ensure my daughter lives a happy life and has a great education to set her up for her future
What’s your greatest fear?
Failure – it’s something that’s always at the back of my mind, the ‘what if?’
Who or what makes you laugh?
Anything! My colleagues will vouch for this, I always have a smile on my face and love having a giggle
Which celebrity would you like to get out of here? Why?
Katie Hopkins. Life is already full of negativity and I understand she only states her opinions, but it usually means that someone’s feelings are hurt in the process
Where would you like to be right now?
Somewhere hot with my family, then we can kick back by the pool with a few cocktails!
Which superpower would you like to have?
I’d like to have the power to heal
Where would you go if you could time-travel?
I’d love to go to the future. Just to see how things pan out 30 years down the line
What was your childhood obsession?
Dancing. I used to dress up as a ballerina all the time, even for the supermarket.
What is the worst kind of print?
Poorly set up artwork. Spot colours that have been converted without much consideration, such as Orange 021
What advice would you give to your teenage self?
Not to worry! Go with your heart and the rest will fall into place
How would you like to be remembered?
Hard working, trustworthy and happy
Amazing! I am truly grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given and that I’ve worked hard for. I’m lucky to have my own little family, a roof over my head and food in the cupboards. The rest is a bonus
