Claire Armstrong has spent her career investing back into her hometown of Carlisle. Whether that be the bricks–and–mortar of a nightclub; Cumbria's community spaces, or the dreamier realm of her creative branding ideas… each and every endeavor has brightened up the Great Border City. ‘I’ve got a flash mob mentality,’ Claire chuckles. ‘I’m a midnight oil burning dreamer and I live for seeing my clients' ideas come to life.’
Claire’s secret is to marry creativity with reliability, doing whatever it takes to turn a sketch on the back of a beermat into a fully realised brand concept. Above all, with a background in Carlisle's youth and lifestyle culture, it’s about working in a lively and pulsing environment, and bringing that infectious energy to Cumbria businesses with the Big Beans design ethos.
