I work with Uniball on workshops, product development and as a brand ambassador. I have worked as a creative consultant looking at the company’s craft delivery, developing a style of photography, projects and tone of voice to appeal to the craft audience. I also provided top tips, projects and videos for the Posca Make Today website.
