About me


My creative love affair with all things branding and digital has culminated in taking a strategic leap of faith and jumping over from the client/product creation side of the table and re-training in all things branding. I am currently taking a sabbatical from the fashion industry to retrain in graphics, having hitherto successfully worked at SMT level for premium accessory brands in product design and re-brand strategy. These include Mulberry, Hobbs, Nine West NY and Knomo London. As a doyenne of multi tasking - and in addition to studying graphics part time- I am also writing and illustrating a book, interning in 2D graphics for a London branding agency and freelancing in fashion trend forecasting. My aim is to merge my brand product creation knowledge with my graphics training in order to provide an expert, 360 degree branding service to brands. I am hungry to learn from and commit to the best. I am seeking a long-term internship and eventually employment with an innovative, successful and inspiring company. I am happy to get my hands dirty, start at the beginning, support, learn, watch, create, make tea, contribute and innovate. If you see my previous product experience as a plus and my commitment to retraining as brave then it would be great to be part of what you are doing.
