Creative Kernow

Sam Taft

Creative Business Advisor

My aim is to work with creative businesses to get to know you, to understand what makes you tick creatively. I’m also here to help you define what your business vision looks like, whether that is the social impact, the creative output or the economic benefits, they all come together to create your business personality and success. Each business is as individual as the creative(s) that runs it.

As a designer and qualified performance coach I have worked across the creative industries for the past 17 years, leading busy design studios, building strong creative teams, and developing both businesses and individual creatives.

My key areas of commercial experience are interior design, design for branded environments and visual merchandising. I have also worked as an associate lecturer at London College of Communications (UAL) on the Spatial Design BA for the past 4 years.

Having worked with London design agencies for the majority of my creative career I have to say that since moving to Cornwall the pure energy that is apparent amongst the creative community is inspiring. Always one keen to get out and about making new connections, I look forward to forging new relationships and developing a deeper understanding of how the creative business community can harness that energy to drive Cornwall into the future.

Creative Kernow

Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following nine projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity’s transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.
