Brighton-based Claire Blyth is busy. Not only is she the founder of design-focused PR agency, Red Setter, she is also the host of My Life in Design podcast and co-founder of the Creative Industry Alliance, which is campaigning to save art and design in state schools. On top of that, she is the co-founder of Flock, Brighton's regular design meetup. 

Through it all, she is a passionate and vocal advocate for the value that brand design brings to business and society. As part of our Day in the life series, I caught up with her to find out how she juggles her various commitments, why she founded Red Setter and discover more about the Creative Industry Alliance.
