A Bristolian business made by Aime Cox-Tennant
Here's how I started an agency by accident
Studio Cotton was started by accident. Well, kinda. I’m Aime, a full-blown Bristolian, and ever so proud of my city, which is why I’ve never really left.
I went to school in Kingswood, studied Applied Genetics at UWE (back when you could afford to go to uni on a whim and pick a subject because you fancied the DNA guy from CSI), and worked my way through retail before landing in the world of marketing.
It took me nearly a decade to realise that the marketing industry and I were really not a good fit. Maybe it was my bad luck, but I worked a number of roles that utterly destroyed my mental health and spirit. It sucked.
So I made a change, and decided to pursue something I really loved. Turns out, what I really loved was running a marketing agency, just on my much more sensible terms.
