Looking to celebrate rising female creative stars who are going above and beyond in and outside work, The Young Creative Council (YCC) launched Badass.gal for International Women’s Day. Sense Senior Creative Nobby Hill spotted the initiative and instantly thought of an ideal candidate to nominate.
“She’s one of the most talented, positive, rad people I’ve ever met (let alone had the pleasure of working with). The only thing more inspiring than her approach is her work,” he told YCC, who agreed and chose Alana McDowell as its 20th Badass.gal.
As well as Sense, Alana has designed for lots of brands, including Vans and Dirtquake, with YCC describing her work as “rebellious, beautiful, polished and ever-evolving”.
“On top of all that,” says Nobby, “Alana is constantly striving to help anyone and everyone in any way she can, from giving tips, finding contacts, supplying veggie recipes, and more. She’s got your back – even if you’ve just met.”
