Some might know, but others might not, pre COVID I was actually cabin crew and had been doing that, along with cabin crew recruitment for 20 years.

So how did I end up running my own brand and digital marketing agency?

Wellโ€ฆ.along with being cabin crew I also had a small hobby interior design business with a friend. We never made any serious money, but we loved what we did. In the business I looked after all of the graphics side, so I used to draw room plans and create artistic impressions of how our final designs would look. I had always played around with bits of graphic and web design, so this played to my skills.

When COVID came along there was no flying and no interior design. I needed something to keep me busy. That is when I started creating logos and websites as a freelance designer. My main source of clients were people from the aviation world who were in a similar situation and wanted to set up a business.

Things progressed from there and two years later I transitioned from a freelance designer to a brand agency, with one part time employee carrying out admin tasks, such as social media scheduling. Six months later we employed a design apprentice and recently we have added a freelance designer to our team.

So that is how I ended up where I am and doing something I love.

I often get asked, do you miss flying? Yes and no. I was very lucky and got to travel to some amazing places. I enjoyed my flying days a lot, but when I got the chance to return after COVID I knew it wasnโ€™t what I wanted to do.

I wanted to design!
