In my last permanent role, I was employed as Senior Digital Designer in the Creative and Branding team at Ocado. I worked across a variety of projects and teams, from design and art direction for marketing comms and seasonal campaigns, to more recently with the brand, marketing and UX teams across Europe, leading a digital brand update to bring visual consistency and better accessibility to the Ocado brand across all of its digital touchpoints.
Surrounded by art and creativity from a young age, I knew I wanted to pursue a creative career. My grandfather was a photographer, my Dad an Interior Designer, my mum is a Ceramicist and crafter, and my older sister is an Artist and Illustrator.
I left school at 16 to study a GNVQ foundation course and A-level at Art & Design College, which is where I began to learn the creative skills I build upon every day. Although I loved the traditional mediums and processes of art and design, digital design was just taking off so I decided to continue my education at a higher level where I could explore the digital side of design and media. I graduated from Southampton Solent University with a BA Hons (2:1) in Multimedia Design.
I believe in investing time in personal development through skills-based training, especially in the fast-moving world of digital technology.
I have a positive mindset with a genuine interest in business, entrepreneurship and start-ups. I love helping people, especially women in business and technology, to follow their dreams and take a leap into the unknown. I love thinking up ideas, pushing the boundaries and experimenting while learning new tech skills.
On a personal level
I live in a village in leafy Hertfordshire (just outside NW London) with my partner and two children. I keep myself fit with strength training, walking and swimming. I enjoy family time with days out exploring, epic bike rides, scratch-cooking healthy meals and movie nights with the kids.
I love music (anything with a good beat!) and enjoy music festivals and camping near the beach during the summer months. I love being near the sea, it's so peaceful and relaxing!! I play the piano which I've recently taken up again during lockdown.
I'm into anything design, creative and tech focused. I love fashion, textiles, interiors and photography. I'll hunt through vintage and charity shops for inspiration!
