Andrew Judd is a designer who's been creating for over 15 years working over a bunch of different disciplines - from kicking off his career in-house at the global event promoter Live Nation, designing TV style guides for the BBC, packaging for high street stores and achieving his childhood dream of designing for his beloved Tottenham Hotspur F.C. He currently teaches in the arts space at a University and his studio Play To Studio is all about - you guessed it, play. Andrew strongly feels play can build self-confidence and break down barriers, because we all know how to play if we just give ourselves the permission. Playto studio offers graphic design, workshops and talks to inspire, motivate, develop and expand creativity through our love of play.

I’m introducing Stacey Lowman of Pachira Money to the podcast - Stacey is a financial wellbeing coach bringing ten years experience in the city to create practical and measured but holistic advice around money in both our business and personal lives. I met with Stacey a few years back when she approached me about portraits. After that, so began my transformation with my relationship with money through coaching sessions with Stacey. Prior to them I firmly had my head stuck in the sand so facing up to them was emotional but one of the most empowering life situations I’ve ever had. In the past two years I have cleared 7k worth of debt and my relationship with my business finances has gone from strength to strength. I am so invested in the power of Stacey and her work that we have teamed up to launch our Pricing Confidence workshops to support creatives and freelancers find clarity in their rate setting through a practical workshop that will take place over a morning in January. We want to see you feel great about your rates as you start 2021.
