About

make-anything

Anyone can create and make-anything, some of which is pure craft. Other creations also cover the good, the bad and the down right ugly! But sometimes even the ugliest of creations can put a smile on your face.

But in general I hope to cover and bring you something of interest, a visual delight, an inspiration or something you just never knew or thought about before, or I simply believe it is worthy of a share! I love to network and I use this blog to also promote those that have a wonderful skill, experience and / or craft.

So what kind of things?

Well at the moment, as in the header, er well, anything.

Design, art, craft, food, music, events, fashion, stories and spoken word, film, photography, yoga.

The list will hopefully continue.

Claire Ives

I was MADE IN ENGLAND, but I have now lived amongst the cheese, bikes, canals and tulips in Amsterdam for the past seven years with my trusty companion Mr Parker Bond Ives International Dog Of Mystery.

Quite simply I love to make, produce, develop and deliver.

With professional experience including over 12 years in London and Amsterdam, covering a number of industries, both agency side, client side and independently. In advertising and marketing, the arts, design, events, and fashion industries. Areas of experience, include ATL, BTL, press and print, OOH, TVCS, Branded Content, POS, Packaging, Branding, Digital/Online, Production, Events & Art buying.

I am multi-disciplined, fully integrated and love to get my hands dirty as well as always offering mentorship and learning myself along the way. Ultimately I like to have fun, be an encouraging influencer and get the best out of people, as well as making tough decisions when needed.

Trained as an illustrator led me to be able t0 provide the empathy and understanding that every creative goes through on any brief, alongside providing the support behind the brief and just getting things done and making them happen.

Projects and roles covered and never limited to:

Senior Creative Producer, Senior Creative Project Management, Accounts and Client Servicing, Communications/Marketing and Brand Manager, Production, Events and Art buying. Creative Traffic/Resource/Re-Structure and Implementation Experience.

Woking on budgets, projects, teams and deliverables any size, big or small.
