The former Director of Packaging Design at Burberry in London, Vincent spent 8 years with the brand where he set-up the packaging design team, and worked in close collaboration with Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey, and the senior creative team to turn Burberry into the No.1 British luxury brand.
Vincent’s notable achievements with the No.1 British luxury brand include fragrances “My Burberry” and “Mr Burberry” (both of which achieved top-5 ranking), “Burberry Bespoke” which was the brand’s most elevated fragrance collection, the complete re-design of the retail packaging, and the launch of new, elevated digital commerce packaging for the brand.
Prior to joining Burberry, Vincent ran his own business with his wife Angela, producing designs for beauty brands including Givenchy, VanCleef & Arpels, Yves St Laurent and Issey Miyake.
Working in-house has allowed him to develop an understanding of production, development and commercial matters, rarely seen in a creative.
Currently based in the UK, Vincent now leverages this unorthodox combination of design skills and pragmatism, providing support to luxury and creative brands globally.
Walpole members are invited to attend the talks on Wednesday 26th of September. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org stating which time you would like to attend.
