About me

Hello! My name is Callie. I'm a stylist and designer living in London. I love to create beautiful imagery and spaces that help brands and individuals visually engage with their audiences using simple design with a playful twist. I am passionate about visual storytelling and using the curation objects for aesthetic purpose. If you are looking for simple design solutions with enduring value and you’d like to discuss how I can help with your specific requirements please get in touch. Are you looking for someone to curate your event, style your product or simply help you design your home? Do you need help sourcing props for an upcoming shoot? Not sure where to start with your wedding styling? Looking to create beautiful content for your social media or website? I work with a range of clients assisting with all styling and design requirements. I can be as involved as you like, from developing visual mood boards and providing creative direction, to sourcing props, budget management and on-site support. I also have a background in design so I am available to meet any design needs you may have from invitations to signage. Coming from a background working in the Event industry, I have a wide experience working on all size events from product launches and brand activations to weddings, photo opportunities and special milestones. Over the years I have designed events for brands such as Facebook, H&M, Mothers Meeting, M&S, Capri-Sun, Aveeno, Fisher Price & J P Morgan as well as working for ultra high-net-worth individuals.

      Creative Intern

      Immersive Cult

      Sep 2016 - Nov 2016
      • London, United Kingdom
      • Internship
      • Assisting director Francesco Pastori with the creative and installation of various immersive events at private members club LouLou’s, 5 Hertford Street, including ‘Berlin 1989’; an event based around the Berlin Wall and the counterculture it created between East and West. The event involved two separate parties that coexisted either side of the Berlin wall, culminating in a merging of the two as the wall was brought down. I really enjoyed the variation of this role but my time was heavily concentrated on prop-making/sourcing and research. Other Immersive Cult events I assisted on include ‘House of Lou-Lou’s’ - a dark fairground themed experience and CNN’s Election party - A party to celebrate the american election where 800 guests could watch the election updates live, eat from the CNN grill diner, play arcade games in Trump Tower or Hilary Hall and enter a mocked-up Oval Office and pose for photos as if they were being inaugurated as president.
