We are super thrilled to announce that our lovely Creative Director Jane Entwistle has been selected as a finalist at this year’s Network She International Women’s Day Awards 2013.
As Creative Director at Entyce, Jane has developed an enviable career, working as a highly esteemed creative designer, a mentor to up and coming talent and an entrepreneur with business partner Libby Entwisle.
After graduating from Lancaster University with First Class honours (a few years back!), Jane worked with one of the first digital agencies of its time based in Manchester. At this young age, she honed her outstanding skills as a specialist in both branding and digital marketing so much so that she stood out amongst peers many years her senior as a leading talent. In 2007, Jane realised she could satisfy the needs of clients far more effectively by establishing her own enterprise with business partner Libby Entwisle. Her instinct was right: Jane now manages a successful design and digital agency and directs the creative portfolio of her international clients.
Jane has always had a passion for good design and outstanding talent. Throughout her career Jane has acknowledged how vital up and coming talent is to her industry. In 2009, she established the Entyce Design Awards, which challenged design students in the North West to compete for a placement within the studio and to see their work published. This incredibly successful initiative is now in its fourth year and attracts hundreds of applications every year.
Her commitment to the student community is notable and Jane is often requested as a key speaker at various universities. She enthusiastically presents to students, sharing creative techniques and offering career advice. She is a Fellow of Blackburn College and she is often invited to share her experiences and commercial knowledge with the current students.
Jane’s dedication to the success of other businesses is what makes her stand out as a unique businesswoman. Having achieved such enormous success at her young age, Jane has certainly emerged as a true success story!
The winner will be announced in March at a glittering gala black tie event in Llandudno.
