Joanne and I met over instagram and realised very quickly that we actually only lived about 20 minutes from each other. After speaking on DM’s for a couple of months, we took the plunge and went on a friend date! We really hit it off as we have so much in common speaking about design & trends, yoga, books we’ve read, the transition into freelance life and so much more I can’t really remember it now!

Since then Joanne and I have collaborated on a number of projects such as workshops, discussion events & even wrote a 2020 trend guide
