Design that takes you places

We are a design and word agency with a hullava lot of soul

A website is like a brand’s home. It says a lot about you. And like a home, there are certain designs that function better than others.

Here at The Woven, we get into the mind of your brand to surface its soul. We tap into the audience to find a way to best speak and service them, digitally. Then, we get creative (our favourite part). We create compelling copy that speaks true to your brand, to tell your story and why your audience should care. We create simple, purposeful designs that work seamlessly with the words and the story.

We create more than a website. We create a home-base for your brand – a space that can take you places.

Meet Chelsie Mew

Owner, creative director and everything else in-between that makes this business function.

~ Collector of plants, adventures and passport stamps. I'm passionate about simple design, and words with a story to tell. I like my coffee black, my tv shows binged and my indoors jungle-like. Constantly inspired by the world around us, I'm addicted to travelling this crazy cool globe we call home. Follow along on the blog.

This is My Story...

Remember when you’re a kid, and adults would ask what you want to be when you grow up? I never really had a passionate answer. All throughout my teenage years, I just ignored the idea of choosing a career. I thought, it would just happen naturally.

Despite not knowing what career I wanted, I knew I wanted one. I knew I wanted to identify as a career women, not a mum or a wife. Not that those things are bad, but because I guess, I wanted more than what was expected of me – or maybe, more than my mum had.

I've always been the kind of person who just goes with the flow. And then suddenly, closer to 30 than 20, I found myself with a degree I didn’t really want, and a job title I cared nothing about. I knew things had to change. I needed to take control of my career, and do something I actually gave a shit about.

I’ve been freelancing and contracting for four years now, saying 'yes' to anything that came my way. I've spent time in television, digital marketing and communications, and advertising in varying roles. And all this moving around, actually worked. I started figuring it out.

I’d always known I wanted to be a writer, but how that fit in, I had no idea. It took me a while to realise, that designing websites and writing the copy alongside it, was a beautiful mix of my passions. And so, I launched The Woven.

So I guess, life doesn’t have to be linear. Some of us are better off not following the herd, and instead, doing it for ourselves. Some of us need to get our hands dirty to be able to figure it all out. And y'know what, that's totally ok.
