360° Review, 72andSunny

What does Brandi uniquely bring

to the team?

She has a different perspective and very diverse skill set – which can be utilised to show her broad ability to apply herself to almost anything! This is superb. Oh, and the other thing is speed, she is incredibly fast! Fast with thoroughness, when put together are a super power. -Mark, Experience Director

Brandi's a breezy, enthusiastic and lovely person to have around. She's got that go-getting type spirit, speaking her mind with authority. She's got an analytical brain, but also a very creative one -Mareka, Senior Creative

She's one the most energetic humans I've met, always ready to take on a new project and committing to it until delivery, with a lot of hunger to learn. - Valentina, Sr. Brand Manager

She is fearless and always enthusiastic to jump in any projects -Emmanuel, Sr. Strategist

Recommendations

It was an absolute pleasure to work with and mentor Brandi whilst she participated in 72U, as an intern and then finally throughout her graduation project during her time at 72andSunny. A fantastic human who brought a wealth of different skills to the agency, she is the perfect example of someone who can be described as a 'go-getter'. A voracious attitude to getting things done and an admirable hunger and desire to learn new things, Brandi is without a doubt one of the most talented individuals I have worked with. We got the opportunity to learn from each other, which is important to me and I hope, with my guidance, she will have retained some of the UX and design thinking process and technique to apply to her future work. She's exceptionally smart, tuned-in, friendly, a giver-of-time and most of all, genuine. I would not hesitate on recommending Brandi as a worthy addition to any team or business.

I got to know Brandi LaCertosa during my classes as graduation coach Fashion Branding at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute, the Netherlands. I worked with her during her final semester developing her BA project. Brandi is a hard working fashion brander and multidisciplinary conceptual thinker with a hands-on ‘down-to-earth’ mentality. As a true maker with a strong creative vision she executes her projects masterfully with an authentic signature. Her final project ‘Multiverse’, a modular set of ‘office furniture’ and interactive platform for creative agency 72andSunny, perfectly demonstrates her detailed, multi-layered research skills which led her to an exceptional final project. ‘Multiverse’ does not only represent the dna of the agency thoroughly but also shows Brandi’s determined, refreshing and relevant design skills. Furthermore Brandi’s project revealed serious talent on diverse levels. Her collaborative skills enabled her to develop a project which is certainly of very high quality. With her relentless dedication, strong eye and great personality Brandi would bring a wealth of knowledge and skills to any company, creative agency or brand she is interested working for. I know she would be an excellent fit for your organisation. I would like to wish Brandi all the best and continued success for her future career.

I had the opportunity to work with Brandi during the Creative Residency at 72andSunny in Amsterdam. She is an unique professional, someone that embraces her originality and translate it all the time on her projects. She is the kind of person that don’t stop. Brandi will be always researching and trying until we get to the best outcome. She’s a hard working, brave and inspiring woman, a person that you always want to have around.

Brandi is a genuine creative, an endless stream of ideas and all the energy to pursue them. She is ambitious in all her pursuits and not afraid to try anything new. As a teacher at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute, I was regularly witnessing the scale of Brandi's ambition. She was always busy making things, excited by learning new skills and curious to know more about any subject. While at AMFI, I have thoroughly enjoyed chatting with Brandi over her projects - her take on any brief is always unique. Her work stood out from her peers for its originality because she was never motivated by the grade; she was fearless. Her energy has no limits, working on multiply extracurricular projects at one time. Before she even graduated, I asked Brandi to speak to the other students; she helped inspire and motivate a new generation to try competitions such as D&AD New Bloods. Lastly, Brandi is not just good at thinking up new things - she has all the skills to see it through to completion, including copywriting, illustration, UX and UI design, consumer insights and strategy. She is the total creative package - and a genuinely lovely person.
