Robe: Where are you right now?

Nathan: Mawsley, a village 11 miles from Robe UK’s office in Northampton. Currently, I’m in my studio at the bottom of the garden.

Robe: What are you doing to fill the time whilst isolating / on lockdown?

Nathan: Apart from trying not to kill my kids … :) joking!!!! I am busy designing concepts for future exhibitions, shows and video shoots … and keeping fit.

Robe: What’s the most creative thing you’re able to do in isolation?

Nathan: Making sure I don’t run out of coffee beans!

I’m being resourceful in working on content for social media and other channels without access to all the usual facilities!

Robe: Are you looking after anyone else during the Covid-19 crisis?

Nathan: Yes, my parents are self-quarantining so I’m shopping and doing various errands for them during this time!

Robe: Has anyone inspired you since this started?

Nathan: Yes, how quick and smart our industrial logistics specialists have been, and how they have played a major part in keeping the food chain going and the supermarket shelves stocked.

Robe: Favourite book / movie / Netflix series / viral video

Nathan: I’m not really a book type of person, but movie-wise, Snatch (a 2000 British crime comedy film written and directed by Guy Ritchie), and my favourite TV series are Brassic and (British coming-of-age sitcom) The Inbetweeners.

Robe: What’s the first thing you’d like to do when we are through it?

Nathan: Catch up with all my friends and family and have a few beers in a pub garden!

Robe: Own question / answer / message of solidarity or something you’d like to say?

Nathan: Don’t underestimate this situation! We should not take things we love for granted! Stay at home, if you are with your family enjoy this time … and stay healthy!
