Artistic Director

MTArt

May 2016 - May 2017
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • I am currently working as artistic director at MTArt, a talent management agency for international, visual artists. There, I am responsible for all visual content for the brand (decks, pitches, social media, brochures, newsletters, applications, website, conferences and events). I also head the company branding having built the brand vision from start to where it currently stands. I am responsible for the curation of social media platforms, with particular attention to Instagram. By managing the social media accounts, I have taken our following from 700 to 9k in just the past 3 months. My extensive experience as photographer means that I also cover all photography, including that of art works, portraits, documentation and the editing of each. I am proficient in Adobe Photoshop, In Design and Microsoft Office. I work closely with the digital manager, the content manager, the business development manager and the CEO to build cohesive branding, present a strong company voice and narrative and tailor my work to particular projects and clients. My entrepreneurial experience means that I can think on my feet and approach strategy through effective, innovating and engaging means.
