Olivia Imeson


Olivia has recently joined us as a BA graduate from Camberwell College of Art, where she won a First in Illustration. In addition to her drawing skills she is also trained as a designer, with skills in marketing and on-line media.

What makes Olivia special to us, is that alongside her design skills, she has also gained a considerable amount of experience in the hospitality industry, working with some well-known names. She spent a part-time year with Jamie’s Italian, working on the front desk and behind the scenes; and then a summer organising commercial events at London Zoo, which gave her plenty of stories to tell!

Key Skills

  • Original illustration
  • Literature design
  • Social media development
  • Teamwork and flexibility
  • Computer skills including mastery of the Adobe Creative Suite

For her most recent art project, Olivia masterminded the Cotswold Venus project.

Walkers on the Cotswold Way will encounter a series of ‘Venus’ figures, sculpted from wild clay and shaped like the earliest female figurines from the Stone Age. The aim is to connect walkers in this wild landscape with the ancient people who first travelled along this route.

At MYA, Olivia’s task is also to make connections: using an artist’s creative skills to connect our clients with their customers.

  • The team, led by Carla McKenzie, were meticulous in every detail. They modelled the cleaning requirements to deliver the optimum solution for the facilities across EMEA, and really took time to understand the culture of our business. I have no hesitation in recommending MYA and its team – they are dedicated and innovative, and always go the extra mile.

  • Carla and her team have broad experience in the industry. Apart from being very supportive in inventing (new) concepts, they also make use of their many years of experience when implementing these concepts. Their ultimate goal is to let people enjoy honest and good food.

  • Carla and her team worked tirelessly with us to ensure our very international and cross-cultural needs were met with great creativity and skill. They listened to us, responded to our needs and delivered above expectations.

  • They are brave enough to challenge others in pursuit of the ultimate solution, whether it be behind the scenes with kitchen flow and catering management, or front-of-house service and design.

  • If all companies who serve the independent school sector had your breadth of vision and openness of mind, I have little doubt that the sector would be a richer and more exciting place to be.

  • During the negotiation process, Carla’s knowledge and expertise enabled our company to achieve a very strong commercial outcome, and some significant savings were yielded from the exercise.
