People

Isolde Godfrey and Jess Harvey
are Woven Ink

Woven Ink was natural evolution of a friendship and a shared desire to make a positive impact within our society and communities. 
Even if it's just a small change, gentle ripples... it fuels the love for the work they do.

Isolde and Jess could be defined as many things. Artists, animators, directors, producers, scribes... but above all else they are curious. Revelling in any opportunity to learn more about people and organisations; thriving when producing meaningful, creatively engaging work, with storytelling at it's heart.
