What experiences have led you here?
I moved into working in branding through DesignStudio. It was much smaller then, but working on big rebrands and travelling all over the world. It was an incredibly formative part of my career, and really opened up my way of thinking and my approach.
Since then I’ve worked largely independently, either for agencies or running my studio. Working for yourself is incredibly liberating and fulfilling, but it can be stressful too. It can feel all-consuming when work and life are so closely linked.
What advice would you give the younger version of yourself?
I’ve definitely learnt by doing, fucking up, watching others, and improving! So I would probably just tell myself to do more of that. Show up and put yourself out there.
