What I brought to the project
This was a fab opportunity to pair my colourful, sunny, graphic style with Lidl’s fun, light-hearted marketing tone.
I am passionate about creating optimistic, joyful imagery of mouth-watering food and drink, so this commission was a great fit to showcase their affordable, high quality products and ingredients ready for summer celebrations.
I was assisted in this project by:
Fergal Connolly and assistant who brought cooking and styling expertise from print and television commercials, making sure everything was camera-perfect at just the right time.
Jose Mosquera provided invaluable lighting and technical support, making sure every last detail was perfectly lit and all the tech ran smoothly.
Sophie Alice Bronze, the digi tech of my dreams, ensured that every image was super sharp, everything was clear for the retouchers and all the important creative was safely backed up. She also kept the agency and clients fully engaged by creating rapid composites showing various image options in the final layouts.
Nancy Anne produces vibrant, playful imagery for advertising clients, working out of photography studios in London and Leeds.
