A boutique web design studio with a love for modern, elegant & thoughtful design

I'm Megan, a web designer living in the Cape Winelands

I love creating beautiful,
conversion-focused  websites for design-conscious businesses and creative entrepreneurs in South Africa and abroad. I design each website with love and attention to detail to reflect your brand style, connect with your ideal customers/clients and support your business’s growth.

Story

My background is in journalism, communications and marketing. I have worked for a range of successful companies in South Africa and the United Kingdom; from a daily newspaper, to a UK publishing house and
fast-paced digital agency.

In 2016 I became a mother and that was the catalyst needed to make sweeping changes in my life. I resigned from my job as a digital marketer and took the first steps towards launching my own creative and
inspired business.

Here I am with my two loves – Connor and Emma.

I now manage a business I love, driven by passion for beautiful and impactful design and helping like-minded business owners navigate the often overwhelming world of websites, eCommerce and digital marketing.

Specialities

Ecommerce

I am passionate about eCommerce and helping
product-based businesses create beautiful,
conversion-focused online shops. I built my first Shopify website in 2015, and now almost 80% of the projects I take on involve eCommerce in some way. I am also current studying towards a Conversion Optimisation degree.

Search Engine Optimsation (SEO)

SEO is about helping a website show up on the first page of Google when people search for the services or products it sells. I have been working in SEO since 2010; and have helped many businesses get onto the first page of Google. My most notable projects included managing the eCommerce website, SEO and online content for one of SA’s biggest nationwide car rental companies.

Communications

Helping clients identify and communicate what makes their brand distinctive (and why people should do business with them) is a core focus of my service.

What makes my process different?

I start each project with an intensive strategy phase. Starting with strategy helps us to create an intentional website that holistically works for your business. I create a strategy workbook for you that contains thought-provoking questions designed to get you thinking deeply about your brand to help you achieve more confidence and clarity before we begin creating your website. We will also schedule a strategy consultation or two to discuss your answers and define the way forward.

I love working with design-conscious brands that value simplicity and clean, functional design.

I believe that an intentional website, created strategically, can help transform a small business, giving the business owner confidence and clarity in the work they do or products they sell.

I am here to gently and expertly guide you throughout the website creation process.
