Vanessa was paired with Louisa Tapper of VCCP, who looked at her portfolio and suggested that she find an art director to partner with and work on briefs together. Vanessa was then invited to VCCP with her partner to get formal feedback on her portfolio. She was subsequently offered a paid three-month placement at VCCP, starting in September 2016.
At the end of the placement, Vanessa was offered a full time permanent job at VCCP. She worked there as a Creative and has worked across a number of high profile projects until early 2018. A particular strength of hers is using her contacts and connections to bring in underground talent and social influencers to campaigns.
