This is about you

Usually an about page should be all about me, me me. But actually, it's all about you. It's about what I can do for you, how I can help with your current conundrum, solve any problems you may (or may not) be aware of and ultimately do some work for you that will end any anxiety, help your brand communicate better and go all Nancy Drew and the Hardy boys on you.

 

What you need

Are you looking for some work to be done? Some art direction on a shoot? Even far flung ideas and scribbled concepts to inject some life into a brief? Or some crafted words to say what you really mean to your audience? Well, I'm someone who listens and likes to ask a lot of questions. And ultimately, I'm even better at telling stories

I don't just listen to you, I actually hear you. Yes, there is a difference. Then I go away and make some other stuff up in my head that makes you look better, sound better and communicate better. Not you personally of course. We're not here to talk about the real you and make you a better person - although that has sometimes become an unexpected outcome. No, the you we are talking about is your brand of course.

 

Ok...so about me

I’ve worked freelance and also in agencies on a mixed bag of clients from yoga, autism and milk to luxury hotels, blood, newspapers, radio, retail and more. From small to big companies, each one of them just as important as the next. I like to ask lots of questions and stick my nose into your business. In a good way of course. I'm a problem solver and like to get involved. You can take a look at my Nancy Drew inspired Linkedin profile and read about the agencies I’ve worked in, the brands I’ve worked on and those I’ve helped to create. And I've also won a few awards for some of my work but that's another story.

 

let's collaborate

So back to you...What can I do for you? I help to convey your message to your audience in the best possible way. There is no mystery too baffling that can’t be solved. I believe in keeping things simple and producing smart ideas whether that’s through art direction, copywriting, designing or scribbling concepts. It'll help you achieve your goals in the right way.

Sold on me yet? As a bit of an all rounder (or as a square peg in a round hole someone once said) I tend to think about the bigger picture and how everything joins up, connecting the dots and making sense of what you're trying to achieve.  I like being different. Drop me a note and say hello.

nice things said about me


 

"Each time I work with Sharon I really look forward to it, because I know she'll create a very exciting solution. Speaking to her about the brief is invaluable, as she asks questions that force clarity and simplicity, and brings to problems a fresh and vibrant point of view. And then, of course, there's her work: simple, powerful, bold, contemporary. Work you feel proud of; work that people want to talk about. Populist or prestige, brands are given new life."

diane lurie, consultant brand strategist

 

"SHARON WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR REINVENTING ME. SHE CHALLENGED; SHE LISTENED; SHE DISAGREED; SHE AGREED; AND SHE 'GOT IT'. AND HAVING 'GOT IT' SHE THEN COMMUNICATED IT TO ME AND HELPED ME COMMUNICATE IT TO THE WORLD. I HATED HER SUGGESTION. IT WAS EVERYTHING I THOUGHT IT SHOULDN'T BE. BUT, I WAS WRONG. SHE WAS RIGHT. THE RESPONSE DEMONSTRATED JUST HOW ON THE MARK SHE WAS. AND NOW? I LOVE THE BRAND, THE WEBSITE, EVERYTHING."

JIM TAYLOR, JIM TAYLOR:KNOWS AUTISM

 

"I have found Sharon to be creative, responsive and highly skilled in her development of concepts, ideas and what is really needed to achieve maximum impact. She takes a tenacious and very human approach to problem-solving and I am benefitting from her expertise in drilling down to discover what is important for me in order to best project my business."

"Sharon is unforgettable in a wholly fantastic way. the epitome of the saying that "if a job is worth doing, it is worth doing properly". And then some. Her understanding of what a client wants and needs is impeccable, going above and beyond the expectations."

tiff finney, pole physique

 

"here's what you get when you've got sharon. someone who's ridiculously committed to your project. practical, down to earth approach. original and creative thinking. brilliant ideas. and loads of laughs."

judi farrell, merchant city yoga

 

"Sharon rebranded us and everything we stood for. We love our new image which has raised us head and shoulders above competitors. and that includes our gorgeous business cards & communication to customers. We highly recommend her services, we don't know what we'd have done without her!" 

kirsten & heather, POle junkie

 

"Sharon is really one in a million. What's she's done for me and my business is unquestionable. designed my new logo, my website and basically everything I can't do. which is a lot when hair isn't involved. I can't recommend Sharon enough and don't know what I'd do without her."
