MY ETHICAL DESIGN AGENCY ETHOS
I’ve always been passionate about ethical businesses and made the leap to start my own sustainable and ethical design agency with a focus on ethical living, sustainability and generally working with people whose business excites me and is going to make the world a better place!
I work hard to remain true to my ethical design agency ethos and use suppliers that are renowned for their sustainable mission (my printers are vegan and vegetarian society approved and ethical banking and energy). I keep everything digital to reduce paper wastage and deal with clients around the world using Skype and digital tools to communicate.
I also focus on all the little day to day things and avoid plastic and general waste – I use KeepCups and re-usable water bottles and support local suppliers, travel on public transport and cycle to meetings. I also love to meet up for a cup of tea with local businesses around Stockport, Manchester and Cheshire to chat about ideas (mine is an Earl Grey or Matcha Latte). Say hello on the form below!
I BELIEVE IN…
Running business consciously from the heart and using intuition to ignore the noise and guide in making decisions
A minimalist, ‘anti-hustle’ approach to business which supports the life I want to live and doesn’t chase after endless growth
Creating meaningful and personal connections with people and collaborating on helping bringing business dreams to life
Founder of Creative Wilderness
I’m Charlotte the founder of Creative Wilderness. I love to collaborate with forward thinking brands. I’ve had over 10 years in the design industry working at big agencies on brands including Wilkinson Sword, Peroni, Kozel, Energizer, McCann, The Hut Group, Pilsner, Aldi, Cambridge University, Harbour Hotels and many many more. I bring this ‘big agency’ experience to help independent businesses. I landed my first job at an advertising agency after setting up an indie online zine called ‘Geeek’ which focused on Manchester culture and bought together illustrators and writers around the city. It even got a sneaky mention on the Guardian!
Before jumping into design I dreamed of being a Rock star and studied music at Paul McCartneys music school ‘The Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts’. I spent a few years as a pro musician where I toured, played festivals, recorded albums and also a music video. I still love playing sax and bass in bands and music and design make me feel alive and inspired!
3 things that keep me motivated are yoga or runs every morning, matcha tea and 6music!
