Sallie Hudson

Brand strategist, Creative Director and Writer. Founder Daisy Ideas.


A strategically minded creative with over 25 years' experience in Australia, NZ and the UK. I help companies and organisations with brand strategy, internal comms and employee resources, as well as creating smaller budget campaigns with my collective of designers. I am also a senior creative resource for agencies; conceptualising, writing and - my Red Adair superpower - smoothly landing that wild idea you're struggling to make sense of, in an engaging concept and write up that sells itself. I enjoy turning complex into simple, dry into engaging, and confusing into clear. I love helping my clients - working closely with them, solving their problems, capitalising on opportunities, and becoming part of their team. I have a wealth of experience in brand strategy, creative content creation, sales and awareness campaigns, BTC, BTB and Internal comms. And I absolutely love conceiving and creating content for education/edutainment, behaviour change and brand engagement. I am available for outsourced project work as well as collaboration with your internal teams. I work remotely in Noosa (who wouldn't if they could?) but fly in for face-to-face meetings where required.
