We are in full swing with our Creative Women series – our way to profile women in creativity who are breaking new ground in their respective fields. We have a chat to one of the most respected ECD’s in South Africa, Kerry Friend, who has been working at HelloComputer to merge the traditional advertising world with digital. We like her approach and the projects she has been head of recently. On the other side of the spectrum we also interview the duo behind Supernatural Floral Design – Emma Frost and Jessica Ellis – who have been behind some of the more creative floral designs we’ve seen in a while.
