If you’re looking for someone to inspire your business or creative work, look no further than Miss Led, aka artist and illustrator Joanna Henly. Based in East London, Miss Led has worked with huge brands, including Clinique, Ted Baker, Nike and Selfridges. Her brilliant ability to market herself on social media is just one reason for her success. Ben Tallon, illustrator extraordinaire, meets Miss Led for a round two on the Arrest All Mimics podcast.
He explains a little bit about their meeting:
“One year on from her first appearance on Arrest All Mimics, Miss Led returns. In the summer of 2015, we met in Brooklyn, New York to discuss her creative roots, journey to becoming one of the most recognisable and loved illustrators in the business and plans to expand. (You can listen to that on episode 4 of the show)
“It’s been one crazy year and I meet her at ‘Miss Led Towers’ in London to hear all about the imminent launch of her online video tutorial course. We also hear about inspiring adventures to a solo show in Hong Kong, live painting with Escoda Brushes in Barcelona and much more.
“We talk about how Miss Led’s evolution from freelance illustrator to functioning as a more rounded creative professional, dabbling in art-direction with Lynx, taking on an assistant and how a huge, hard-earned social media following can bring global exposure and opportunities.
“This lady is one inspiring professional and she lays down a perfect example of the commitment, self-belief and individuality required to continue progressing in the creative industry. Take note!”
