About me
I can help your design agency tell compelling stories, and craft a content strategy to win you new business. My editorial skills also translate beautifully into long-form copywriting for brands. While editor of award-winning graphic design title Computer Arts, I developed an in-depth understanding of how different agencies operate. During my tenure, I launched the Brand Impact Awards - an international prize scheme, for which I remain chair of judges - as well as the UK Studio Rankings, an annual peer reputation survey of the country's top design agencies. I play an active role in the design industry, and am a member of D&AD, 26, ProCopywriters and TypoCircle. As an awards judge, speaker and panel chair, I have worked with events and conferences globally.

The new department of Human Resources and Organisational Development (shortened to HROD internally) needed a cohesive way of communicating, both to the staff within the Bank, as well as prospective employees and partners externally, in order to be clear about the key role that they play in enabling the Bank’s work.
