Zo and — insight and analysis and words and storytelling and design and illustration and social impact and solutions and collaboration and compassion and creativity — Co


Hi, I’m Zoë

I work with organisations of all sizes and ideas at all stages, to make sure they get known and to help them grow.

I specialise in strategy, messaging, communication and production briefs.

I work on projects from pitch stage through to delivery, ensuring they are delivered on time, on budget and to the highest possible creative standard.

I believe that 21st century business has a responsibility to improve the lives of others and so focus on using collaboration, compassion and creativity to solve social and environmental challenges.

Services

Strategy

I analyse organisations and articulate a unique positioning for them to use to direct the whole business and refer to for all decision making.

This may include interviewing key stakeholders; reviewing existing materials materials; competitive analysis; defining and running surveys, focus groups and workshops.

Messaging

I create intelligently crafted verbal identities which define how organisations are perceived in the world and allow them to stand out and succeed.

This may include naming, tone of voice, key descriptors, key messages and a how to use guideline document.

Communication

I prioritise, plan and create consistent and confident multi-channel communications, which deliver against an organisation’s business and brand goals to ensure loyalty and growth.

This may include audience identification; channel prioritisation; measurement methods; editorial planning; communication concepts.

Production

I manage production of print, product, packaging design; spatial environments including exhibitions and installations; digital media including UX, web design and build; photography, filmmaking, animation and illustration.

This may include preparing budget proposals and timing plans; artist research; building and managing creative teams; overseeing the consistent execution of assets across multi-channels and regions.
