Working on bespoke client projects has also allowed me to conduct custom in-depth research, take part in workshops and contribute to co-creation sessions working on creative strategies across a range of channels, including physical retail, e-commerce, campaigns and creative packaging. My role involves maintaining existing relationships and establishing new connections with creative agencies to provide GDR with first hand access to brilliant work that can be recommended to clients.
