Blog No. 14 - Amanda Griffiths
Hia, I’m Amanda Griffiths and I work alongside the Marketing Team as its Inhouse Designer at the Torch. I’ve been working for the Torch just over a year and have had the pleasure of designing and marketing our Torch Theatre Productions from last year Of Mice and Men (2022), Sleeping Beauty (2022) and this year working with Chelsey Gillard our Artistic Director on Private Lives and our next exciting pantomime Beauty and the Beast. My role includes the digital marketing designs used through our social media platforms and website promoting all the exciting up and coming films, productions and live shows here at the Torch. I also design the Live Theatre and Film brochures and the Torch Theatre Productions’ Programmes.
I’ve been designing for several years within Pembrokeshire after graduating from university at Swindon with a degree in Graphics and Packaging design. I have worked inhouse with several design and print houses whilst bringing up my two children alongside my husband. They are now young adults and nearly ready to fly the nest!
When you don’t find me at the Torch, I’m either in my shop based in Pembroke or roaming and exploring our county with the endless choice of beaches and miles of coastline. It is my inspiration and where I’m able to think best for my many designs and creations. I develop coastal inspired pieces of ceramics to sell alongside my Pembrokeshire range posters, which you may have seen this year exhibiting in the Torch Gallery with my poster collection and other Pembrokeshire artists I support in the shop.
The best part of my job besides working alongside the other Torch teams is seeing what the next live show, film and Torch Theatre Production is coming up! We’ll first have a marketing meeting discussing marketing strategies for each individual show and setting a plan and list of things to do! It could be ‘Dame Colin’ at Pembroke Castle Christmas Market to flying ‘bloomers’ on tall castle turrets. It’s exciting to see what the marketing team comes up with to promote and sell tickets.
I thoroughly enjoy my work here at the Torch. The work allows me to be creative and to use my imagination and I can't think of a better job. I'm really looking forward to working on exciting future projects that the Torch has to offer.
