Strategy Lead at That Thing & Co-Founder at Not Only — But Also, London
With a background in Graphic Design, Maddi now works as Strategy Lead for That Thing. After a “mid-degree-crisis” realising being a designer wasn’t right for her, she reworked her portfolio, powered into the world of networking and spent hours combing through branding jargon before going on to cut her strategic teeth working at DesignStudio and later, Made Thought.
On the side she runs creative platform Not Only — But Also with her partner Guy Munday where they are working to open the conversation on the industry to shine a light on the other roles that exist past Graphic Designer and generate new opportunities for young creatives looking for their first move. She’ll be sharing some of her journey to figuring out where she fit and some advice on how to get started in finding a position that’s right for you.
