Life and running a small creative studio with strong ethics and morals can be hard to balance (and exhausting), so it’s important to have perspective and reflect.

I wanted to ‘lift my head up’ and share what our wonderful team and collective has been up to recently:

💥 Held our second B Social bringing local businesses together to learn all about becoming a B Corp UK and paving the way for change

💥 Brand and website launch for Stephen Joseph Theatre

💥 Being listed as a great studio to work by Creative Boom

💥 Completed a strategic brand for Insights North East, who use academic research to influence local policy change

💥 Worked with the ace Christopher Owens on naming, branding and bringing to life the brilliant Pattern – telling stories of extra-‘ordinary’ people doing amazing things

💥 Working alongside Tracy Fishwick OBE and Peter Mills (an amazing mentor) to build a new brand and website for People’s Powerhouse who raise the debate about TRUE equity in the North, for the North, by the North

💥 Working with significant NGOs including Feedback Natasha Hurley, Global Forest Coalition and Friends of the Earth on creating a global campaign, brand and website to stop public development banks investing in factory farming

💥 Working with Cureusher and the amazing Jo Milne – changing the narrative about Usher Syndrome

💥 Collabs with Crystallised Laura Rothwell FRSA on all things Shout Up, holding venues to account about sexual harassment, pushing forward training for safer spaces for all

💥 Workshop facilitating with The Cultural Spring based on place making, community building and creative conversations

💥 A rebrand for non-profit Team Fostering and new system changers Now Foster, both pushing for systemic change. A rebrand for a domestic abuse charity WWIN, and a brand for place based initiative by Academic Health Science Network.
