Zara’s first agency job was working on a digital team. Prior to that she worked on festivals and then a tech start-up.

Boss says: Nick Riggall, head of digital strategy: "Zara’s commitment to create best-in-class experiences, combined with the ability to build complex digital project teams has delivered an enviable list of new, innovative work for GPJ clients. With a curiosity to explore new technology, she continues to push the boundaries of how and what we create to grow our clients’ businesses shaping the direction of our agency for the better."

Best project I’ve worked on: I don’t think of it like that because I’m always looking for the next challenge. I work across so many different areas and I love the variation.

Most challenging moment: Since being at GPJ I’ve helped build the in-house digital team, which was a massive challenge.

Dream client: Somebody who knows what they want but allows us to be creative. I don’t mind who the actual client is.

Alternative career: Creating or building something that hasn’t been invented yet.

Goals before 40: To create something game changing within the industry that stands out and has a real impact for the client.
