Jane Scherbaum
Knowledge is power. Jane has her ear to the ground with a passion for all things art and design. With Tate as her first cultural stomping-ground her strategic and diplomatic skills came to the fore working with a long list of leading lights from the creative industries; Pentagram, Wolff Olins, and Herzog & de Meuron to name but a few. Her network of collaborators grew during her tenure at the V&A and she is happiest when mediating between clients and creatives to achieve the very best possible outcome. In her role as project director Jane’s strength is her calmness, steering the ship with a steady hand.

Her work with Neville Brody, The Guardian and the V&A (a small selection of career highlights), although extremely varied, bears the hallmark of originality, elegance, honesty and thoughtfulness. Graphic Designers don’t come any better than this!
