Whether you're a designer, an entrepreneur or a blogger, you're probably here because you understand the power of a distinctive brand identity. You get that when you create something that reflects the ethos of your business; something that creates an emotional connection between you, your business and your client; that wonderful things happen.
You're looking for a little guidance, maybe a splosh of inspiration and a strong creative vision to get you there. Maybe you're looking to up your game, create a stronger portfolio and a robust design process that your team can get behind; an experienced hand to guide you through (re)branding your business or to collaborate on a workshop that inspires your team or your clients. I can help.
Take a scroll down to see the projects I've worked on and how we might be able to work together. I look forward to hearing from you.

I'm an experienced speaker and whether you're planning an intimate event for twelve or to fill an exhibition hall with several hundred, my natural, conversational style will inform, educate and encourage your audience to think big about their brand.
Here's a taster of some of the projects I've worked on recently. Do also take a look at the blog where you'll find more as well as some of the projects I'm working on right now.
Please note that I tend to take on just one, at most two, projects a month depending on their size which I find is a good balance between my writing, speaking and workshop commitments as well as the many balls I juggle as a mum to three! I usually book around 3 months in advance and, where I can, keep projects to term times only.
"Working with Fiona has been transformative to our business. Would I recommend her? Absolutely."
