Let’s get to know one another over a cold beer and some greasy pizza.

 
 
 

We're in this together.

Let me guess… you’re a badass biz owner, dreamer extraordinaire, who doesn't take themselves too seriously. You're hustling like no one's business to make your dreams come to fruition. You've got a never ending to-do list and need a hand, but you don't want to work with just anyone.

Say no more. I hear ya! And let me tell you, I’m in exactly the same place. (virtual cheers 🍻)

It doesn't matter whether you launched your big idea two years ago or two weeks ago. Whether you've finally got some money to play with or have literally no budget. What matters is, we're in this together. 

 
 
 

WHAT I DO

Content that gives your brand life.

The Woven is a creative studio that specialises in purpose-driven design and content. The kind of purpose that has story to tell. A story that it captivates your audience through emotion and makes them feel a part of something that's more than just them.

We put words at the forefront of everything we do. We don't just write copy. We delve into your brand's world, inhale the jargon and exhale words that connect with your audience. Words that tell your story concisely and clearly, with passion and personality.

From there, we design simple, easy to use websites that keep your audience in mind, every step of the way. Our websites begin with words, so the design is bound with meaning. They’re so much more than a pretty face.

Everything we do, we do with purpose and pride. And we wouldn't have it any other way. So, tell me. Are you ready to step it up and give your brand life?

This is my story.

CHAPTER ONE.

I'm a word person. I always have been.

Ever since I can remember, I wanted to be a journalist. As a kid, my fairytale romances weren’t of finding Romeo. Instead, I was running around with a cardboard laptop I had made myself, solving mysteries and writing stories.

CHAPTER TWO.

I’m a ‘go with the flow’ kinda gal. I hate to admit this but I kinda fell into a career of words. Although, I think, deep down, I was always meant to be a writer.

The career stream had me writing for a handful of mediums, from television to editorial work, social media and advertising, to print publications and user experience.

I’ve spent years balancing freelance and contract work with travelling the world. Travel is a seriously big part of who I am. The itch to explore is deeply ingrained in me.

CHAPTER THREE.

Over the years, working alongside designers, I quickly became seriously intrigued by their world. After a heck of a lot of determination and learning by practice, practice, practice, I was ready to call myself a designer. But not just any old designer, one that really understands content strategy. That, my friend, is my point of difference in this crazy online world.

CHAPTER FOUR – (WIP).

To tell you the truth, I’m still trying to figure it out. I have a sneaky suspicion we all are.

After spending years with the intention to travel as much as possible, I’ve found a new sense of comfort in having a home base with a loved one and a ball of fluff to snuggle up to at night. I dream of a tree/sea change where I can live off the land, surrounded by animals and the smell of the ocean in the air. But that’s a work in progress.
