I’ve efficiently managed the creative departments being able to lead and motivate the members of my team and, last but not least, closely collaborated with Marketing and Merchandising departments to develop measurable campaigns. At Hem I managed a team of 11 people including creative copywriters, online/offline digital designers, packaging designers, photographers, filmmakers, UI designers and art directors. I've developed strategies for the brand’s visual identity, advertising campaigns, pop-up store opening in the Seven Dials area in London, fairs, photoshoots and social media.
