As of September 2015, Magnetic Ideas is no longer taking on projects. For beautiful and effective branding, we highly recommend Simon and his team at To The Point or Sabina at Creative Contact. Our founder and Creative Director Miranda Newsom is now available for full-time or contract roles in marketing, copywriting or communications. Ping me.
Miranda grew up in an entrepreneurial American family. From her first job at age 10 in one of the family restaurants to a long, hot summer of roofing after uni, she understands the value of hard work and enterprise. She’s an unusual mix, being both writer and designer. In the 1990s, she designed presentations for American Express Bank in London and worked in internal comms for Hamilton Oil/BHP. She then moved to South Beach as Creative Director of Honeymoon magazine in Miami. She returned to London in 1999 as a Features Editor at Hearst UK in Soho. From there she started copywriting for branding, marketing and design agencies and working with businesses in a range of sectors. She founded Magnetic Ideas in 2013 to provide high-quality branding, marketing and design for up-and-coming brands. She has also presented branding and marketing workshops at events such as The Business Show. Now she’s going solo.
