ACID appoints director of marketing

Anti Copying in Design (ACID) has appointed Kate Mason as director of marketing.

ACID says that Kate brings a wealth of experience to the team, not only from her credentials within the creative industries but also from her role leading The Big Draw, now a global organisation, which helps children "to recognise their creative soul through exploration and expression of ideas". Kate also brings an enthusiasm and passion for arts and crafts, as chair of the Society for Designer Craftsmen (SDC). 

Kate says: “I can’t think of a more exciting time to be getting involved with this pioneering organisation which in so many ways is ahead of the curve in its focus, horizon scanning and leadership. Its agility, reach, and the breadth and nature of the membership, ensure it is uniquely positioned. It is able to not only champion and be a leading voice against design theft, but also play a central role in the ongoing and developing narrative around copying in the creative industries and evidencing and mitigating this impact.” 

Dids Macdonald OBE, CEO of ACID, adds: “The team and I can’t wait for Kate to get started. ACID is at a pivotal time in our history, 25 years from its inception, and together with Kate, we look to the next period of campaigning, growth and engagement with passion. As a committed advocate of the value of arts, craft and design she is streets ahead of most about understanding the importance of intellectual property as a positive force for growth.”

Kate will begin her new role on 3rd April.
