Refinery29 has earned a loyal following with its frank coverage of sex, politics, pop culture, fashion and women’s issues. As Creative Lead on Branded Content, Casey Bird is responsible for working with clients from Net-a-Porter to Samsung to create engaging content on a wide range of topics.

Before joining Refinery29, Bird was a freelance creative working with ad agencies in London, Paris and Amsterdam. She was the inaugural president of SheSays London – an organisation set up to support and empower women in the creative industries – and co-launched its mentoring arm Who’s Your Momma in 2015. The scheme has so far paired over 200 women with mentors.

Last year, Bird launched The Freelance Circle – a website that allows freelancers to anonymously review companies they’ve freelanced with.
