My name is Anastasia and I am an independent communications consultant based in London, UK.

I empower small businesses to communicate creatively and tell their story with a strong and coherent voice.

My Experience

I work with small businesses in the creative and third sector to help them communicate in a holistic and ethical way.

In addition to my work as an independent consultant, I also work part-time for a third-sector organisation. This is a rewarding and challenging role.

I have been working in communications since 2014. In that time, I have learned how to manage social media accounts, develop a brand, create content strategies, deliver successful newsletter campaigns, and write for many different audiences.

In addition to all that, I also love graphic design, illustration, and videography. These content creation skills allow me to see things from a different, more creative perspective.

My values

Work Happy

I practice my profession and contribute to society in a way that feels right.

Work Together

I collaborate with other to achieve our shared goals with a supportive and positive attitude.

Work in Progress

I approach new challenges as learning opportunities with curiosity and an open mind.
