Creative Editor

Oliver Sweeney

Mar 2015
  • Responsible for photographic, videography, art direction, creative visual merchandising and any other creative touch points for the brand.

2015

Communications Coordinator

Jack Wills

May 2014 - Mar 2015
  • At Jack Wills I was responsible for ensuring consistency of brand visual across stores internationally. I produced books, print and online, which stores would use as a bible for how to dress their store. I owned the whole process, from setting up model stores, photographing, writing copy, designing print, to production and delivery. I set up store windows and helped with creative process design.

2014

VM Print & Communications Coordinator

Topman/topshop

May 2013 - May 2014
  • My main responsibility at Topman was print development, ensuring precise delivery of visual merchandising equipment and communicating with stores as to what and when products I had created would be delivered. This responsibility included liaison across the whole business, from Marketing Directors and CEO to store staff, something which I believe has great importance and I have ensured I have maintained at any role.
