I worked across all of Orchards licences; including Pokemon, My Little Pony, Powerpuff Girls and Littlest Pet Shop. Creating fiction, activity, annuals, sticker books, bind-ups, board and baby books. As well as Licensing I also looked after various series fiction, including Rainbow Magic, Secret Kingdom & Secret Princesses.

I have experience working with brands, licensors, style guides as well as creating new fiction series’, logo’s, developing new characters, also the more simple tasks such as slip cases, resizing. Loads of stuff!

Previous to Hachette, I worked in the magazine sector, most recently on Moshi Monsters Magazine, and before then on health and lifestyle titles.
