Here at Glacier Media, our internal agency ecosystem is made up of 150+ folks.

Another week, another Team GMD Q&A. It’s kind of like Vogue’s 73 Questions. Instead, it’s in blog form and there are less than 10 questions – because you’re busy and we respect your time.

This is the moment you’ve been waiting for. This week, we are featuring our Organic Social powerhouse – Rachel Simrose. Rachel is Team GMD’s Senior Social Media Strategist, the wizard behind all our Social Pro accounts. Her job includes project management, in-person client onboarding, strategy deck creation, content curation and beyond. When Rachel is not replying to the 200+ emails she receives in a day, you can find her lurking around the neighbourhood, looking for dogs to pet. Read on to learn more about Rachel.

Expertise: Organic Social Media, content creation and finding random dogs to pat.

Personal kryptonite: A good hazy IPA.

Morning rituals: Snooze button, coffee, get ready for the day, bike into the office if the weather cooperates and more coffee.

Office habit: My (bad) habit is only leaving my desk for coffee and the washroom.

What is one of your greatest achievements: Graduating my undergrad program with Magna Cumme Laude honours (insert nerd emoji here).

Whose work has inspired you the most (any creative figure): My OG creative inspiration has always been Seymour Chwast and Milton Glaser from Push Pin Studios. I stumbled upon The Push Pin Graphic: A Quarter Century of Innovative Design and Illustration in the library (yes, I’m still the proud owner of my very own library card to this day) and was totally enthralled. Simple, minimalist and a wee bit cheeky—it never gets old.

Best Instagram account of 2019 so far: Oh, tough one. For best local lifestyle I have been enjoying @vancitywild lately, and @modcloth is a brand that always keeps up with the Insta-trends. My personal fav is @animalsdoingthings (private account, but worth the follow, I promise).

Would you rather live in a world with bad design or a world with no design: “Everything is designed. Few things are designed well.” —Brian Reed

It’s Saturday morning, what do you have planned for the weekend: Long weekends = camping. And after two years of missing out on the (highly competitive) BC Parks reservation system, I’ve finally cracked the code. Hot tip: the secret is snagging them exactly four months in advance.
