Imogen is a playful pragmatist. Always striving to understand more deeply and expand her knowledge.

As a designer and illustrator, she has worked on a variety of different areas including branding, packaging, digital design, campaign, print, and more. Her particular interest lies in brand identity. Starting with brand strategy enables her to fully understand a business and their goals to create solutions that meaningfully connect with their customers.

Growing up, it took a long time for her to learn to read. She escaped the mystery of words by immersing herself in a colourful land of drawing. But this initial difficulty has led her to be extremely determined, an excellent illustrator, and an avid reader (once the words started lining up).
