    Simone Paddock
    Creative Communicator

    Simone believes the way you communicate your company, your product - nay, your reason for doing what you do - should be a complete and all-encompassing package. It's about enticing visuals, engrossing words, and beautiful design. Properly crafted, shaken and stirred, those ingredients fuse into a presence that truly and deeply represents who you are as a brand.

    And concocting cocktails is what Simone does.

    She draws her recipes from skills
