Hi, I’m Raphaëlle

I’m a freelance communications designer

I specialise in helping to shape 21st century organisations through developing the culture and engagement from the inside out.

I’ve previously worked with a number of high growth startups, including my own, and in one of the world’s best technology teams, Government Digital Service(GDS) to help them launch and grow their user base. I’m also a social media marketer, an entrepreneur, a blogger and a bit of a geek, especially when it comes to data.

I’m passionate about making a real difference and love to make things happen. I’ve taken an idea to a funded business, grown and managed teams and developed advocates and communities locally and globally.

I’m available for hire on a freelance basis.

“I won’t be surprised if Raphaelle becomes soon a “trend-maker” herself, I really believe she will be among the industry leaders in the near future.” Christian Alves, Product Manager
