Faye is as an experienced design team lead with a demonstrable history of working within in-house and agency design teams. She joins from DCS, a UK market leader in sales and distribution of health, beauty and household brands, where she spent six years, rising to design team leader. Previous to this, Faye worked for several years sharpening her graphic design skills across a number of agency and client-side roles. Here she enjoyed many and varied design challenges from hair extensions, to horse racing, to corporate reports and digital marketing.

Skilled in the full range of design work, Faye brings experience in print management, typography, packaging and a particular passion for web design. In an impressive 15 year career, she has worked across a wide range of consumer and business sectors, including FMCG, health, beauty & logistics.

Commenting on her appointment, Faye said: “I have been fortunate to have worked for major organisations and agencies, which has given me a well-rounded perspective on the role design plays in supporting products, services and businesses of all kinds.

“Leader attracted me as design has been core to the business since its inception over 50 years ago. It is also a great opportunity to work with experienced marketing and communications experts in devising and delivering creative, effective integrated campaigns that draw on all areas of communication.”

James Holden, Leader managing director said: “Visual design and multimedia content is fundamental to our business, so we are delighted to appoint such an experienced operator as Faye. In her career to date, she has excelled at design and management across a hugely varied client base, both client-side and in agency. This will undoubtedly strengthen our integrated proposition to clients.”
