About me

Finland made me do it. A couple of years ago, I was tasked with advertising the Finnish school in which I taught. After designing and building a fully functioning escape room to do so, I twigged that this advertising business wasn’t too bad. So I hopped back over to Edinburgh to study a course in it and BAM, here we are. I’m a hybrid creative with a love of words, especially satisfying ones like “plume”. With a stroke of humongous good fortune, I met my work wife (Ciara*) during uni and we’ve been creatively inseparable ever since. You can check out our portfolio here: www.chloeandciara.com When I’m not advertising, you’ll find me being a disgustingly cliche ex-English Lit student, writing fiction and boring my lovely mum with it. Get in touch if you fancy a chat! *It’s pronounced Kee-ra. She doesn’t like it if you get it wrong - trust me.
