I got involved with the WEDF because I wanted to help raise its profile. As a PR consultant, I am not only interested in promoting the WEDF to a wider audience but also meeting – and being inspired by – local creatives and designers.
I joined WEDF after many years of attending events and seeing their impact in the design community. It's great to be part of a shared voice that brings people together to celebrate, inspire and promote all things design.
I made the decision straight out of uni to avoid the big smoke. Being a part of WEDF helps cement that choice every day, as they provide me with the inspiration and creative scene that I feared I'd miss – the South West is the best.
Despite my work with numbers, I have a long standing passion for design and the arts. Following a few invites to the talks WEDF arrange, I have found this interest of imagery and the process of creation growing. I am very proud to have been invited to join the team as Treasurer and to be able to share my thoughts and views in creating a greater design environment for the future.
I'm married to a graphic designer and his passion for design and creativity always inspires me. I've been impressed by the support of the creative community in Bristol, something I think WEDF plays a huge part in, so when they said they needed a numbers person, I was delighted to get involved.
I joined WEDF to feel a part of the creative community that Bristol and the South West are so proud of (as they should be!) I love feeling part of something bigger, and being able to be around other creatives is a constant source of inspiration.
