Jonny Williams, Creative Content Consultant
While attending college Jonny decided that he could find a better use for his interest in social media and photoshop and so a hobby turned into a career. While studying Film at university Jonny developed his skills working as a freelance designer, digital business development advisor, and manager of his own clothing business. An entrepreneurial spirit combined with a passion for helping businesses and people achieve their goals is what has motivated Jonny throughout his career.
After completing a masters in Film and leaving roles as a marketing manager for both an independent film and student TV station Jonny realised that writing content was one of the things that he enjoyed most throughout his experience due to the significant impact it can have in so many different ways.
When not working Jonny is usually indulging in media, whether that be watching an eclectic range of films, binging on tv shows, spending money on records, or watching bands. If he isn’t doing one of those then he will likely be found enjoying good food and even better craft beer.
