In my Pembrokeshire based design studio, I work with layers and contrasts to create artful branding that is...
Timeless and soulful, fresh but familiar, layered and meaningful

I have always been creative at heart, but early on I struggled to find a way to create beautiful work AND earn a living. I believed what people told me about art not being a viable career path.
The game-changer for me was learning about branding in a corporate marketing team I stumbled into. I was newly graduated with an Art & Design degree (specialising in jewellery design and silversmithing!) and applied for a corporate graphic design role alongside running my jewellery business.
The branding knowledge I gained over the next few years was invaluable. Although I still love silversmithing, the role really ignited a passion for branding and rekindled the fire I’d had as a child for illustration and lettering design.
Now, after 7 years of working with small businesses and becoming a Mother in the pandemic, I’ve experienced firsthand how difficult running a business can feel in a world that mostly isn’t equal or fair.
Creating an accessible (pay-as-you-go) branding process is my offering to subvert ‘the way it’s supposed to be done’. Will you join me?
I've adored the experience of working with Meg on my branding and I'm totally in love with the final result. The concept she came up with was so stunning and so me - I still can't quite believe it's mine! If you're thinking about working with her, just do it. It'll be the best investment you ever make!
Meg has been amazing throughout the whole process and really captured the spirit of my brand and brought it to life. It's everything I wanted and so much more. I couldn't be happier with the final outcome. Meg was helpful even after the branding was complete with tips on how to use Canva and super helpful with helping me set up print files too.
The whole process was professional, smooth and easy. She really held space for my ideas as well as suggesting improvements and tweaks. I am in love with my new logo, colours, fonts and brand elements - it's really taken my business to a new level.
I am beyond thrilled with the resulting logo, it's stunning and captured my brief perfectly. I'm also sad to be concluding our design sprint time together, as I thoroughly enjoyed the process of unfolding the design with Meg. She listens, interprets, welcomes feedback, evolves, collaborates - it was a wonderful experience
