About me

Hi, I’m Lucy. Communicator and creator, I strive to develop strong, lasting and remarkable brand experiences. I have over three years experience in the creative industry and have had the opportunity to gain an understanding of a variety of design disciplines. My areas of expertise include branding, print design/production and digital design. I am currently the lead UK designer for global agency Hotwire as part of their Digital Brand Labs team. My role involves all things ranging from B2B/B2C branding to campaigns and marketing. Charity work is a passion of mine. During my spare time I work for Mary’s Living & Giving, a Save the Children charity shop. I also use my design skills to support a number of charitable organisations. For example, earlier this year I solely lead a charity branding project for Wandsworth Welcomes Refugees, creating an identity to help drive them forward and make a difference to the lives of refugee in London.
