Having graduated in 2008 with a degree in Applied Genetics, it was probably inevitable that Aime would end up running a web design company. After a short stint in retail management, Aime pivoted into the slightly more relevant field of healthcare marketing – and not-too-soon after dropped the ‘healthcare’ part.
Aime spent nearly a decade working at some of the top marketing agencies in the South West, with clients including Disney Store, Alfa Romeo and Danone. As a digital marketing and CRM specialist, she was pretty darn obsessed with tracking ideas through to their results, and tweaking and testing to optimise for commercial success.
Working on global brands may have allowed Aime to get heaps of experience and exposure to different areas of marketing – but it has always been small businesses that hold Aime’s heart.
That’s why when Aime founded Studio Cotton in 2016, she decided that’s the only kind of project Studio Cotton would ever work on. Since then, Aime’s helped hundreds of small business owners with website design, one-to-one consultations, workshops and events – plus thousands more through bitesize help from the Studio Cotton blog and Instagram profile.
