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

I’m Megan Hodson, a WordPress web designer with over 12 years’ experience in digital marketing and communications in South Africa and the UK.

I offer an intuitive and intentional web design service that helps entrepreneurs and businesses achieve clarity, confidence and growth in the digital space.

If you’re anything like me, you love what you do and you're brilliant at it. You have vision and big goals.

But…. when it comes to planning a new website or online shop for your business, knowing how it should be designed and built, what content it needs,  or how to align it with your marketing, leaves you feeling overwhelmed. You want a website that your customers love so you can sell more with confidence and in style, but you also need help and guidance achieving that, as smoothly as possible.

When you work with me, the first thing we do is have a conversation about your business. I aim to really get to know your business so I can offer a bespoke solution that works. Together, we’re going to map out a clear direction for your new website. I’ll help you decide on the content and offer insight as to how your new website can support your marketing, and in so doing become an aligned online foundation for your business. 

The end result is a gorgeous and intentional website built for your amazing brand, to help it thrive in the digital space and beyond.  

After your new website launches, we can continue to work together in a number of ways, including digital marketing virtual assistance,  website management and hosting. My focus is on building a trusted and caring long-term relationship with you and your brand.
I would love to be part of your journey .

About me

  • I left my 9 - 5 digital agency job in late 2016 to have my first child. A few months later, with my baby on my lap, I started Nutmeg.
  • I designed and built my first Shopify online store in 2015 (for a business selling mountain bikes and sports equipment).
  • I was part of the team that managed the digital marketing and eCommerce website for one of South Africa's biggest car rental companies.
  • I have a degree in Media & Communications and in my early career worked in journalism and publishing, in South Africa and the UK.

We'd be a great fit if...

  • You've been running a business for a few years now, and you're ready to take it up a level.
  • Your current website feels stagnant, irrelevant and outdated. You're ashamed to send people to it and it's not helping your business.
  • You want to work with a strategic and efficient web designer with an eye for elegant and simple design who will actually listen to you.
  • You want to develop a long-term relationship with someone who will help you align your brand + website + marketing, setting your business up for transformation and growth.
