Tess is everything you wish for in a lead creative; she is not only a total whizz in all design programs, she also photographs, styles, builds sets, edits videos, builds websites, codes, manages and mentors her teams... honestly, the list could go on. Her continual determination to think outside the box is what allowed us to take our projects to the next level. Tess is the ultimate package, and with an incredible eye for detail, an understanding of sales and promotional marketing, alongside a proficient knowledge of the fashion and retail world, she couldn’t come more highly recommended.

Tess has an incredible talent for being able to think both creatively and strategically to deliver a project from concept through to execution. Through my time working with her in an incredibly fast paced and reactive environment she was never phased by the challenges thrown her way and always went over and above to deliver.
Her passion for art direction and design along with her extensive skill set and comprehensive work experience makes her a valuable asset for any business.
— Jessie Dean | Executive Marketing & Ecommerce Manager at Lorna Jane
Tess will go above and beyond to meet deadlines and will always deliver more than the brief. Recently, working with Tess at beginning boutique, I watched as Tess directed the creative team to deliver all briefs, packaged to polished perfection... Tess works well in a fast paced environment and is a positive leader
