Celebrating 10 Years in Business: An interview with Akamuti founder Lindsey Hedges & illustrator Jenny Lloyd

Lindsey Hedges hired illustrator Jenny Lloyd to rebrand her ethical skincare range after seeing her illustrations on these very pages. To celebrate Akamuti's 10th birthday we catch up with both ladies and give our readers an opportunity to get 20% off all products.

People come to this website both for inspiration and to find talented creatives to work with, so my illustrators will know they are doing their best if they get some lovely jobs as a result of their hard work. I particularly love it when a job comes about as a result of a collaboration within the pages of Amelia's Magazine, which is exactly what happened when illustrator Jenny Lloyd answered a callout to illustrate an image to accompany an interview with Lindsey Hedges, founder of ethical skincare range Akamuti. Her beautiful image so perfectly captured the essence of the Akamuti brand that Lindsey had no hesitation in hiring her to rebrand her entire range. As Akamuti celebrates its 10th birthday this month, I caught up with both Lindsey and Jenny to find out a little bit more about this wonderful partnership.
