About me
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet.” This is one of the most famous quotes of all time, as a name is integral to a person, company or a product. That is why marketing, advertising and branding are so appealing, as these three tools have the ability to define the success of a journey. They have the potential to create an image that is forever lasting, this being something truly special in a world that is full of uncertainty. Having grown up with a love of fashion and brands, I am enthusiastic, creative and not afraid of hard work.

  • McDonald's Happy Meals
    McDonald's Happy MealsWith media agency OMD having set the strategy for McDonald’s Happy Meals across Europe, we work with their creative team to develop social content each month for a range of Happy Meal licences. Each campaign starts with a collaborative creative session where we set the idea for that month’s toy license. This is followed by a live action shoot and the delivery of one still image and two videos (to target specific audiences). This set of deliverables has proved to be the most successful and engaging. We work with the team end to end, and each campaign has to be turned around quickly, executed for a tight budget but most importantly be good fun!
  • McDonald's Happy Studio
    McDonald's Happy StudioAt a time when faith in the McDonald’s brand was at an all-time low, we brought families back to the Happy Meal by reinventing playtime. Working with education experts and game creators, we redesigned the Happy Studio experience to help kids develop useful skills through purposeful play. It launched in 42 European countries and is extending worldwide as a result of its initial success. Happy Studio is based on the principles of epistemic play, a theory that children learn best when they’re engaged in experiences that let them behave like real professionals. We believe that encouraging kids to act like professionals helps them to think creatively, make things they can be proud of, and develop their skills. In the new app, kids can choose to be either an artist, a musician or an inventor, playing relevant games to help them develop the skills associated with that occupation. For example, as a musician, kids are challenged to recognise different instruments and musical patterns to instruct them about different sounds and musical structure and to improve their rhythm and timing. The app was developed with input from child development experts to ensure that the games on the platform help kids to learn useful skills. An accompanying parent portal communicates the platform’s developmental goals, and also provides a resource for parents, suggesting activities that they can do with their kids or challenges to set them to continue McDonald’s Think, Make, Grow philosophy, which informed the new-look Happy Studio. The platform is launching in 38 European market (42 languages) with plans to add Australia, New Zealand, North America and UAE early 2016. The UK version of the Happy Studio website and the ‘new happy studio’ application is available on Apple store and Google play from the 16th December.

    Future Makers - a new content platform for SiemensWhen your company employs more people than the population of Iceland, how do you make sure they all stay equally enchanted with the prospect of going to work each day?
