Hi - I'm Megan

With over 16 years of experience in communications, marketing and user-focused web design (including eCommerce since 2010), I specialise in helping businesses get more sales from their online stores.

Based in Fish Hoek, Cape Town, I collaborate remotely with brands in the lifestyle, creative, food & beverage, interior design and wellness spaces.

Our studio specialises in creating easy-to-manage Shopify websites that make it smooth and appealing for more people to buy your products.

This includes brand new Shopify websites, makeovers and platform migrations to Shopify.

I've been working in eCommerce since 2010 and with Shopify since 2015, for international and local brands, both big and small.

I built my first Shopify website in 2015, for a sports shop selling MTB and road bikes. I got them to the first page of Google as a result of content-focused SEO (competing against nationwide established retailers). This led to significant growth in organic sales. Back then we ran no digital adverts – all online sales came from organic Google search.

I was hooked on eCommerce from this moment, knowing my unique skillset and 15+ years experience blending communications, marketing and web design is the perfect mix for helping others leverage the power of eCommerce. I’m excited to share my expertise and collaborate with businesses looking to achieve sustainable online growth.


"After 24-years in business and numerous websites finally we have a website that is really working for us, reflects our business and we are proud of it. "

“Megan took the time to really understand the business’ vision and values and has captured this perfectly. Seamless integration between the website, social media platforms, as well as backend automation, has resulted in vastly increased engagement with our target market resulting in quality sales leads as well as value adds to our existing clients. The feedback from our current and new clients as well as business partners has been fantastic. Since the launch of the site, Megan’s commitment to ongoing support and introducing new innovative ideas has not stopped. It really does feel like Megan is part of our team.””

"We can’t speak highly enough about Megan and Nutmeg Design Studio!"

“We are a small boutique travel agency located in Southern California, USA that was looking for someone to re-imagine our website after 10 years. We interviewed multiple design companies and from the moment we connected with Megan over the phone, we knew we had found someone who could elevate our business to represent where we are today. After an initial strategy meeting, Megan came up with a detailed development plan and was very attentive to all our comments, change requests and at times demanding timelines. Nutmeg Design is highly professional and offers beautiful design ideas . We highly recommend Nutmeg Studio to anyone looking to create a website that can compete on the web.”
