As a born creative, Chrissie would never be without her Crayola’s/drawing books; later adapting her love of design, love of tech, and love of fashion; Chrissie would spend hours creating!
After leaving school, Chrissie ‘tried’ hairdressing (although, this ended rather sharpish!) when 'long hair' became 'very short hair'!
Chrissie (stayed away from scissors!), gave birth to her first child; and commenced NVQ ‘Travel & Tourism’; leading to a 'Business Tourism' degree (grad. 2.1); and her second child.
Whilst completing the degree Chrissie reignited her ‘Creativity’ and ‘thinking-outside-the-box’; the final dissertation “Evaluating the influence of perceptions towards contemporary culture surrounding destination branding" (in short, can you see, hear, smell, taste, and touch London) involved the creation of numerous self-designed research techniques (which may have involved tasting ‘London – Dry Gin’).
Following, graduation Chrissie was employed by CPLG/DHX this was a fantastic platform to become emerged into the ‘Entertainment, Lifestyle, Sports, and Gaming Industries’ Chrissie has contributed and/or led at every stage of Brand Licensing from initial concept to product at retail; working within Product Development, Retail, Sales and Marketing. Chrissie has also worked as the ‘Licensing Merch.’ for a children's brand apparel co; and ‘BDM’ for an art studio.
Chrissie enjoys networking/working with friends/contacts within numerous creative capacities; this has provided fantastic opportunities to represent global brands from British Airways and England Rugby; to Universal (Jurassic World and Minions); and DXH Media (Teletubbies and In the Night Garden), amongst several others.
Now, Chrissie has fused together her 'creativity' 'passions' 'experience' and 'business acumen' to form 'Emerald Create' which is the 'go-to' for all 'creative resources' for the toys & games; entertainment; and brand licensed industries.
