Rosie May. What, who, where, how?
Although Rosie May Bird Smith sounds like the name of a private schooled knob, this London-based copywriter discovered her partiality for poems and a good bit of alliteration in the arse end of Bromley. She then attempted to refine herself with a degree in words and a Masters in how to put those words into adverts, and has since gained herself the highly esteemed title of a #badassgal in the creative industry.
She has worked alongside clients such as Beefeater Gin, Renault, Subway and FIFA and gets (some of) her thrills from the power and potential of a big idea.
Although advertising is her forte, she also works as a freelance portrait painter. In 2013 she painted a school janitor which made her a National Portrait Prize Finalist, but she still considers being head girl her proudest achievement to date. She never liked 'arty-farty art' - art for arts sake, hence why she went into advertising: art with a purpose.
Avocados also have a special place in her heart (incase you were wondering about the gifs).
