Design an alternative digital summer catalogue cover for Boden
Global Brand Director
‘Boden is a wonderfully ambitious and creative business; a British success story that has exported its success and subsequently generates more than half its sales outside the UK’
Penny is an advertising guru, having worked in the advertising industry for twenty years. She joined Boden in
September 2013, with the remit of building on the brand’s heritage to deliver
sustainability and growth, while at the same time moving its image and offering forward for new audiences.
Responsible for all aspects of the brand, Penny quickly took to the task in
hand, helping to hone a refreshing new voice and look in Creative Services.
‘I’m as ambitious now as I was when I started the business almost 25 years ago’
Johnnie spent much of his teens hunting down vintage tweed overcoats and Converse high-tops in Portobello Road, and cut his teeth as Men’s Fashion Editor of Harpers & Queen’s teenage edition in August 1977. Almost fifteen years later, miserable with his city job, and with the support of his wife Sophie, Johnnie set up Boden; with the aim of creating a brand that gave customers in the UK – and later, beyond – what they wanted: accessible, beautifully made, original products with a witty British edge.
