Lucy Dearing stopped creative marketing in its tracks with her unapologetic parody of THIS’s blunt pack designs – and that’s why we wanted her on the FFFA team. Lucy knows what the food sector is hungry for and is bringing her unique style to FFFA content and photography. Lucy creates most of the designs for our marketing and this is only the beginning.
