Be More Boss: Sally Higham

We teamed up with Creative Review and Facebook to bring you Be More Boss. Together we aim to highlight the current issue of a lack of female-led businesses and celebrate some of the female leaders doing innovative work. To do this we collaborated with the talented GIF artist and photographer Kate Bones.
