About me
Nene is an Executive Creative Director, with Art Direction being my main discipline. Having worked in the creative advertising industry for over a decade. She has worked with brands such as Wall Street Journal, Disney, L’Oréal, HP, Warner Bros, Jaguar, Pepsi, Pizza Hut, Visa, Samsung and Vodaphone amongst many others. Her experience crosses both agency and client side including Digitas, Dare, MC Saatchi, JWT, Wunderman, BBDO and Adam&EveDDB. I concept, create, craft and art direct digital product designs, campaign/experience/content design, photo shoots and video shoots. As well as assemble, manage and direct creative teams (developers, strategists, makeup artists, models, photographers, videographers, stylists set designers etc.) I'm also a visual designer mainly interface design, UI and a working knowledge of UX/CX principles. I love digital campaign idea generation, layout, and brand art direction; they are my core abilities as well as having an excellent grasp on print design as well.

  • Intersteller Beauty
    Intersteller BeautyThis beauty story is inspired by the film Interstellar and makeup texture artist Danessa Myricks. Lori Bee wrote this concept about travel and familiarity in a place that isn't familiar. One of my sources of inspiration is films, so we tied it back to a story which has similar themes.
