ROSIE MAY WHAT WHO WHERE HOW?
Rosie May is a London-based copywriter and creative with a partiality for paints, poems, a good pint, and - incase it wasn't obvious enough already - avocados. Having grown up just 15 minutes outside of the big smoke, she jetted off North to read English Literature at York before venturing down to Falmouth to pick up a Distinction for her Creative Advertising Masters.
She has spent time at some big agencies including Publicis London, McCann and Geometry Global and 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, logo designer and English tutor. In 2013 she became a National Portrait Prize Finalist and had her work exhibited in the Mall Galleries. However, she never liked 'arty-farty art' - art for arts sake, hence why she went into advertising: art with a purpose.
She likes to climb mountains, consume edgy avocado brunches, write to-do lists, and doesn't object to throwing a lacrosse ball around.
Currently, Havas are picking her brains.
