ello, I'm Clare 



Here's the truth - I can talk to you about my degree in Visual Communications. I can bang on about my 12+ years working as a designer, my experience in marketing and advertising. I can reference the 100+ brands I've worked with along the way.  But the thing you really need to know, the thing that makes me really, deeply get it? I've stood in the same shoes you're in right now.

My business was forged from passion and wanderlust way back in my distant 20s; a vague idea brought to fruition in order to sustain my street-food-and-beers habit doing what I loved whilst I wandered through South East Asia, Mexico, Europe and New Zealand. I have run a business from backpacker hostels in Guatemala, as a side hustle to my day job, as a single Mum of a toddler and now whilst growing a family of four.

So wherever you're at right now, know that I see you - I know what it takes to bring your ideas into reality and I'm here to make that journey just a little bit easier for you.

I tell                           for heart-led brands.

visual stories


Living real life over 'for the gram'


Hanging out with my kids and my husband

At least two breakfasts, preferably three

Creating things of real beauty

Making space for daydreaming

Trusting the process

Here's what I do really well.

We want your brand to work smarter for you, so we deep dive into the heart of your story before we touch a design tool. I’m all about the curiosity approach - I ask searching, deep dive questions that allow me to unearth the heart of your story and put it to work for your brand.

Asking the right questions

Growing up, I was the kid that always asks why (my four year old is exactly the same and I’m so proud). Give me a topic and I’ll geek out over it - from outer space to the perfect pizza dough recipe or why humans can’t resist the urge to shop, and when I work with a client on their brand you can bet I’m going to bring the same curiosity approach to unearthing every facet of their brand story.

Leading with curiosity

Look, there are some seriously beautiful website templates out there, but templates aren’t for everyone. When you want to stand apart as a leader, a disruptor, a maven in your industry - you need a site that’s built just for you. Every custom site I build is created from a totally blank slate, with a focus on creative layouts and artistic details that will weave your brand into every corner of your online home and convert like crazy.

Websites that don’t look like everyone else’s

My background is in art direction, and it shows. The focus of my branding process is to define the story behind your brand, build a strategy around it, and then tell it in a way that is distinctly designed to capture and resonate with your people. People don’t buy things, they buy stories - and my zone of genius is in telling those stories through beautiful design.

Visual storytelling

“First time I have actually enjoyed the process of working with a designer. Clare seems to ask just the right questions to get to know your business and does her magic of translating that into visuals that truly represent what you do

The first night in a new city, the smell of clean laundry, new pyjamas, the ocean, string lights, bookshops, hot pizza and cold wine, sunny winter mornings, a good font pairing, a long hike and an extra large coffee.   

A few of my favourite things...

Elevated, timeless edge
Intellectual creativity
Model off-duty vibes
Soft & strong
Modern meets nostalgia
Cool girl romantic

My aesthetic is...

A book, a snack & my lipbalm

Never without...

Sleeping under the desert stars in Rajasthan

Favourite travel memory...

Clean sheets, alone time, fresh air, a hot bath & an early night

Self care is...

Online shopping & bingeing Dream Home Makeover

My guilty pleasure is...

Stories, people, nature, colour, fashion, books & art galleries

I'm inspired by...

Online shopping & bingeing Dream Home Makeover

My guilty pleasure is...


That the universe will keep giving you the same lesson until you learn it

That good things take time

That authenticity & quality always win out in the end

That investing in your own success is a form of self care

In truthful, genuine connection

I believe...
