Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We fine tune discerning residences for very wealthy clients and work with their domestic staff to entrench impeccable standards of service and organisation and aim to create a perfectly well run and organised home
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I have a short book to illustrate with 2 main characters - the butler, being a characterture of me, and one of a lady of the house - the employer. The book tells my background and then the best way for wealthy families or individuals to find and employ domestic staff. Going through agents, data bases or via word of mouth, and how to decide on the staff you need, then how to read C.V.'s, and hold an interview and how to create a perfectly run home through creating a good working environment, with good rapport and effective communication for motivated staff. So I am looking for the characters to show various emotions in various situations. I have a list of around 60 images I think could work and from that we can work together and choose around 30 to work on. Such as 'Domestic Bliss' 'Forgiving' 'Affection' 'Formal versus Casual' 'naked staff' 'keep your promises' 'diplomacy' 'bad grooming' and so on and so forth!
We can use colour or black and white, and am really looking for a consistent theme to carry through the book - to be humorous, yet still engaging and that the readers can have an affinity and empathy with both characters.
