Head of Design - Long Tall Sally, London August 2003 - August 2013
I joined Long Tall Sally as a Junior Designer in a Marketing team of 2 (including me), and in time progressed to Head of Design managing a team of 3 in a much larger Marketing department as the company grew. For the first 5 years I managed these requirements on my own including art direction, until the needs of the business required me to employ other team members, and some external resources such as repro and art direction at which point I became Head of Design. I was responsible for all company-wide design needs, including in-store graphics, website design, catalogue and promotional materials, as well as labeling and PR materials to ensure they all met brand guidelines and increased customer awareness and sales.
My duties included:
• Initial concepts through to finished printed products on all artwork including catalogues
• Design of catalogues for UK, EU, USA and Canadian markets (at peak 48 catalogues a year)
• Overall layout design of website for all markets
• Bi-weekly customer email communications
• Updating look/feel of website each season for launch and setting guidelines for others
• Working with Buying teams on labeling design for clothing
• Copy-writing for catalogue and web
• Working closely with external retouching, colour matching and repro teams
• Press passing all catalogues at printers
• Working with external art directors and designers when needed
• Arranging photography and overseeing all ‘pack-shot’ clothing shots
• Some art direction of catalogue shots
• Overseeing team members design work to ensure brand guidelines are met
• Designing and setting brand guidelines
• Planning photo-shoots
• Managing creative budgets for photography, repro and design
Long Tall Sally is a small but expanding company, and being there for a while meant that I was very
hands-on in helping the company grow, so in addition to the duties above, I was required at times
to help in other areas so I also have experience in the following:
• PR - Monitoring and answering customer complaints and requests via social media sites
• Presentations - Powerpoint presentations for Directors for internal/external meetings
• Customer service - Working in-store and at customer events when needed
• Talks - Presenting new concepts and finished designs to other teams and store staff ahead
of season launches for anywhere from 10-100 people
• Mentoring students as part of a programme with an Israeli University
