about the studio

Nutmeg - a warm and powerful medicinal spice. Healing properties include the ability to relieve pain and insomnia, instill calm and revive. According to folk lore, this magical spice brings good luck and prosperity.

I’m Megan Hodson, Owner and Lead Web/UX Designer at Nutmeg. Nutmeg is a boutique eCommerce strategy, design and development studio based in Hilton, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. We work with a range of local and international clients, from start-ups to established and growing product-based businesses.

If you’re anything like me, you love what you do. You have vision and big goals for your business.

But…. when it comes to building an eCommerce website for your business, knowing how it should be designed and structured to maximise conversions, what content it needs, or how to position and align it with your marketing, leaves you feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. 

You want a website that your customers love, that is easy to manage and scale so you can sell more online with confidence and in style, but you also need help achieving that, as simply and efficiently as possible.

When you work with Nutmeg, the first thing we do is have a conversation about your business, the problems it’s facing and where it’s headed. I aim to really discover what makes it distinctive. From there, we’re going to create a clear roadmap for your new eCommerce website that aligns with business goals and directs your business into its next season of growth.

The end result is a user-friendly, conversion-focused digital storefront that will lead to more meaningful engagement with your brand and set your business up for online sales growth.
