Sophie is the founder of Edinburgh based social media agency Stuffs; a black owned, woman led creative studio that produces social media campaigns for brands across the UK and Europe. Over the last ten years her career has seen her work with some of biggest brands in contemporary communications including Dazed Digital, Bulletproof, The Times, & NOT JUST A LABEL. Her path to agency ownership was born out a desire to fill the gap she saw in ethnic minority and female leadership within the creative industries – a path which has seen her now go on to grow a team of over 100 members of staff and influencers – and where her personal efforts are now focused on advocacy work with underrepresented groups. Sophie is also on the Creative Scotland Equalities, Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Group with the vision to help drive impactful change for underrepresented creatives across Scotland, with a keen focus on women and ethnic minorities within the media, digital and technology industry.
