My story

Content creator, author, illustrator… and all-round Creative.

I’m a content creator, writer & illustrator, and currently a Design & Content Creator at Ad Esse Consulting. Passionate about helping others develop as Creatives, I have a blog, LinkedIn account, and Instagram, as well as a weekly newsletter, The Creative Tea Break. I also speak at events such as The Publishing Show on visual storytelling.

After an undergraduate degree in Publishing & English, I went on to complete a Diploma in Professional Marketing and I’m an Associate of The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM).

My awards include ‘Best Personal Branding Campaign’ at the British Accounting Marketing Awards, and my mission is to inspire and share practical advice for Creatives to further their own skills and achieve their goals.

Sam is a fantastic colleague, fun, friendly, professional and is able to take a (usually pretty loose) brief from me and delivers outputs way beyond my wildest expectations and hopes. She has completely transformed our visual identity and our brand into something that I am really proud of; it fits our brand personality 100%, and gives a clear representation of who we are as a company. Most importantly for us at Ad Esse, Sam is clearly a natural practitioner of Continuous Improvement, always working to improve the way she does things, and always developing her own skills. It’s fantastic to see.”
