About Me + You

At 11 years old, I taught myself how to code, and started designing graphics for my own websites. A few years later, I was accepted a year early at age 17 onto a HND in Interactive Media. Even though I was mostly self-taught by this point, I ended up helping teach the class on web design because I already knew the learning materials inside and out!

Since then, I’ve worked at numerous full-service graphic, web design and SEO agencies before breaking out on my own in late 2012.

With over 9 years of professional experience at what I do, and over 6.5 of them in running my own business, I’ve often had clients wonder how on earth I know precisely what they’re going through and my reply is simple: I’ve been through it too.

Now, I’m an award-winning designer and photographer, both a published author and logo designer - but most importantly, I care about nothing more than helping you to embrace your unique superpowers and your values to create + cultivate a brand that’s as special as you are.

I have created my own signature branding process and whether we work together to craft your new brand identity, or I teach you how to brand your business authentically yourself, we follow the same intuitive system that I’ve developed since I first started my business in 2012.

We’ll dive deep into your vision for your work, evaluate and define your work’s mission, and create a set of core brand values that reflect your personality and will guide everything you’re here to do through your business.

I truly believe that when we step out into the world as our most authentic selves, we encourage others to do the same – and we connect with the people that need us the most. And that ripple effect starts now – with you, lovely.
I’ve learned how to embrace vulnerability within the ways I show up in the world and after years of playing small, I’ve now come through the other side, where I can now say that I have a business + brand that supports my growth, rather than slowing it.

And that’s where my work comes in – having been through this experience myself, I know exactly what needs to be done to help creative folks just like you figure out how to show up in the world in bigger, bolder ways.

A few more fun facts about me :)

I’m all about community + connection.

I’m a community creator as well as lurker, and love nothing more than meeting new people – even though I’m an INFJ-T and Enneagram 4!

My 2 fur-babies are my LIFE.

Storm + Jasper are part-black-lab, part-border-collie and are the light + laughter in my everyday. You won’t find me far from them, and if I meet up with you it’s likely I’ll show you pictures on my phone… ?

I’m a lover of smiley faces

I use smiley faces in email from the get-go...I write emoji in practically every sentence that I write...I write just like I talk in real life...and I love to call people ‘lovely’. ?

I’ve spoken on stage 12 times!

I’ve given talks about everything from discovering your inner superhero, to web accessibility, to how we react to fear, and I've spoken to audiences of 10 people all the way up to 1200. I’m all about being vulnerable + sharing my story with the world – if it can help one person, I’m happy.

I’m a born-and-bred Northern city girl.

I'm from Manchester, which is a pretty big city here in the UK – but the countryside has my heart, and I dream of living closer to the sea, where the air is lighter and so is my soul. (Cornwall is my fave!)

I’m one of the biggest geeks you’ll ever meet.

HTML + CSS are second languages to me and I’m a lover of superheroes, Harry Potter, and most other geeky things you can think of. ? (When it comes to superheroes – Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel are my idols, Iron Man is my fave, and Jean Grey (The Phoenix) is my inspiration.)
