Creative Lives — Superrb account manager Becky Shepherd on going from fashion PR to agency life on the coast
Born on Hayling Island, Becky Shepherd flew the nest to study fashion journalism in Farnham, before working in PR and advertising in London and Brighton.

But a chance encounter with Superrb’s creative director, Rory, opened her eyes to a world of satisfying projects away from the overcrowded hubbub, and she soon returned to the south coast to join the team. Citing her early years (“doing all the internships”) as instilling her with a strong work ethic, Becky has amassed a diverse skill set that adds daily variety to her role as as account manager.
