The Creative Review Podcast interviews Coralie

Below is an interview she gave in 2020 with Creative Review in the UK. Creative Review is a bi-monthly print magazine and website that has been bringing the creative community together since 1980.

“With all this success, you might think Bickford-Smith’s career has been a dream. Yet in her conversation with CR’s editor Eliza Williams on the podcast she also discusses the difficulties she had finding her way into being a designer, and other challenges – including a dread of public speaking – that she has had to overcome along the way.”
