New talent added to the design team: Olivia Imeson joins MYA this week
Olivia Imeson joins from Camberwell College of Art with a first-class degree, and now she’s ready to put her design talents to work on behalf of MYA’s clients.
Her degree is in Illustration, but in her graduation year she conducted a design project for a major London retail brand, which sparked her interest in becoming a designer in the commercial world. She says:
“I love to draw, but I also love applying design skills to commercial challenges, planning complete projects as part of a team, using art and style to reach out to customers. Also, long before I’d heard of MYA, I had plenty of experience in the hospitality industry, so it was just a great fit for me and for them.”
Olivia’s experience includes a design and illustration project for a major London-based lingerie brand, developing special events at London Zoo, and hosting at Jamie’s Italian. Her latest art installation – before joining MYA – is the Cotswold Venus Project, which involves placing ‘Venus figurines’ along the Cotswold Way, helping people to re-connect with both nature and the ancient world.
