Work History

Creative Lead
Dec 2019 – Jun 2023

As Creative Lead, my role was primarily telling (and selling) a story visually. From overall concept to individual illustrations, everything I created reflects and enhances client need and Deloitte’s brand, delivering ideas which were new, unique, and compelling. Some examples of campaign ideas I had that were outside of the Deloitte norms included; taking photos of mini figurines to be used as personas in a bid with IKEA, using my drone to take images and footage of the Deloitte office in Finland in a bid for KONE (which has KONE elevators installed), creating comic book style graphics for a bid with UPM paper (very un-corporate and unique for Deloitte at the time).
Early on in this role, I had also completely refreshed and redesigned a key element that Deloitte used when approaching a potential bid, prompted by the challenge of COVID. I took a rather unimpressive corporate workshop and rebuilt it in an unorthodox way, using bright colours, off brand graphics and random trivial interludes, I was able to help make these 4-hour meetings into something that would keep the attendees attention. My methods were quickly taken up by the rest of our team across Europe. I was also asked to apply the same treatment to other client facing workshops in different departments.
