Last Month -
Anna and I (double Anna, isn’t that great 👯♀️) attended ‘Kickass Women Slaying the Creative World’
at General Assembly: a panel of four outrageously talented women from the creative industries. They considered how to work full-time and keep up your own side-project hustle. Turns out, there is no secret sauce, just hard work and discipline. Sorry, folks!
Unfortunately GA has wiped all the information about the panellists from their site. So I’ll tell you a bit about them:
- Works as a Senior Creative @ Digitas and also runs badass.gal
, an amazing project that celebrates young female creatives going above and beyond.
A Brazilian-born product designer who moved her whole life to London to pursue her career goals. She is currently running her own studio
and most recently worked on the London Pride website 👏🏻
By day she works as a
Digital & Social Lead at the Evening Standard and The Independent; by night she is bossing it at Stööki
, a multi-disciplinary art collective supplying streetwear and jewellery.
- A London-based photographer. She works in music, fashion & still-life. I really
need to share her IG
because I can’t stop scrolling through her use of bold colours and motion.
It was inspiring to hear these ladies stories, they were so humble and approachable. By the end of the evening, I wanted to run home and type up this newsletter. It made me feel like could take on anything, and I’d definitely head to another panel event like this.
