YOUNG CREATIVE INNOVATOR
Driven. Forward thinking. Results orientated.
I am a young creative Marketer living in London with extensive digital marketing, customer journey and strategy implementation. I have an eye for design, understanding of potential needs and content creation skills.
I established a strong interest in art direction when I was building marketing and branding reports at University. Jumping straight into Photoshop, InDesign, Final Cut Pro and SketchUp allowed me to translate my ideas seamlessly. Visually appealing designs, subtle details and innovative concepts across brand touch points became my daily companion.
My dedication towards aesthetic designs, user interfaces and engaging marketing strategies evolved. I developed a customer-centric mindset which helped me build cohesive business development plans that solved problems.
Creative flow can be hard to establish. I developed a framework that outlined my process of building marketing strategies:
2. Internal, external and consumer research
3. Strategy summary
5. Critical thinking
6. Develop and finalise
7. WOW the reader
My aim is to please and exceed the expectations of stakeholders with innovative concepts fuelled by a young mindset.

Business Development Plan
A development plan focusing on Uniqlo's next step to innovation. The plan addresses consumer priorities and future technological developments to fuel long term growth and meet Uniqlo's corporate objective:
"To become the number one clothing retailer in the world."
The development plan aims to provide a solution to customer problems.
Problems: Research identified customer pain points in store consisted of long queue time, slow
response of staff, no self-service and crowded floors.
Change: Changes need to be implemented to change Uniqlo's speed of service, customers
convenience, self-service option and reduction of queue time.
Action: Launch of UNI-GO! An app that allows customers to shop in store, scan, pay and go.
Bringing innovation to the retail space by introducing the future of payments.
What is UNI-GO?
Millennials seek for services that add value to their lives with priorities being frictionless experiences, tailored services and self-service processes.
UNI-GO! is a customer centric-concept that will increase commercial acclaim and credibility with stakeholders. No checkout with sales representatives is required. Customers will be able to download UNI-GO! and guide their own shopping experience at their convenience. It consists of 3 steps:
1. SCAN - Use phone to scan product QR code on tag
2. PAY - Pay via mobile
3. GO - Simple go
This will solve customer pain points of long queues, crowded stores and slow response from staff.
Located next to the tills, customers will be able to dispose hangers and pick up bags.
Customers will be guided throughout the app while in-store.
A combination of ATL, TTL and BTL marketing tactics will form an integrated communications approach. Advertising UNI-GO! to both mass and focused markets simultaneously will help create awareness and interest - an important element for a service development strategy.
To generate recognition, digital displays will be located in high footfall areas in stores and outdoors. The aim is to promote the steps of scan, pay, go and fundamentally encourage customers to act in response to the above the line marketing strategy.
Locating displays in buffer zones will manipulate the customer decision-making process in store as the displays intentions are to offer customers a better solution to their shopping experience.
UNI-GO will enhance customer loyalty and form advocate marketing. The concept will transform ‘customers’ into ‘raving fans’ who create stories and spread word of mouth. This is a credible source and as a result generate user generated content. Raving fans will introduce UNI-GO to potential customers converting them to brand ambassadors.
