Creative Lives — Creative director Charlotte Heal on discovering the missing link between graphic design and photography

Posted 20 March 2017 Interview by Laura Snoad

Working with lifestyle clients like Toast and Bally, as well as glossy magazines LOVE and Lula, Charlotte Heal’s design and art direction studio is sought after for her confident, restrained style.
