Meet the key thinkers and doers in ‘The Creative Wilderness Collective’.

Charlotte: Creative Leader

“Soulful creativity and sustainability are my big passions, and all a huge part of my work. After working at big creative agencies for 10 years, I knew I wanted to shape my life around these values. Ethical principles define all that I do – where collaboration, communication and the happiness of my clients means everything. I use intuition, inspired creativity and a deep understanding of how to visually connect people to your brand. I can’t wait to bring your mission and positive purpose to life!””

Elle: Photographer

“I’m the photographer and co-founder of the iconic On The Brink Studio and have been working in edgy, forward-thinking photography for the past 15 years. I specialise in Portrait and Product photography and work closely with my clients to make sure we come up with striking images to suit their brand, looking at colour ways, props that can either be made or sourced and interesting lighting and composition that will catch the eye. My first moment of creative fame was during work experience for Designer Zandra Rhodes and my creation made it into the opening of the Fashion and Textiles Museum in Bermondsey!’

Eman: Conversion Copywriter

“Hi, I’m Eman: Email Conversion Strategist & Copywriter. I write email funnels that turn your sleepy subscribers into ride or dies who hit the buy’ button without hesitation. Whether you’re about to launch your new online course, product or service, my sales emails convert readers into “sign me uppers”. My speciality, though, are welcome emails: emails that take your audience on a journey that starts with your story, and ends with them being raving fans and paying customers.”

Emily: Copywriter

“I’m Emily and I specialise in crafting online narratives for nature-based brands. As somewhere I feel most connected to my creative energy, I spend a lot of my time in nature and enjoy weaving stories that connect people with brands inspired by the natural world. Through social media captions, blog posts and newsletters, I help brands develop an online voice that feels clear and natural to them, really conveying through each word what it is in nature that has inspired their work. Outside of my writing, I’m involved in the running of a lovely yoga studio in Bristol.”

Clare: PR

I’ve worked with all kinds of businesses over the last 13+ years to help them raise awareness, manage their reputations and engage with their target audiences from international famous brands to fast-growth startups. If you want to get more people to know about you, your products, services or campaigns, I can help. I help to get businesses featured in the media, win awards, develop engaging content, drive traffic to their website, and create new, exciting partnerships and business opportunities. An interesting fact about me – I was voted at school as being ‘Most Likely to Be on TV’ and I’ve since appeared on (and won!) a TV show, and now I help businesses get on TV as part of our media relations activity!.”
