About the
studio

My mission is to help independent, owner-managed brands create beautiful, user-friendly websites that help them grow their online sales.

Hi I'm Meg... I've been working in the ecommerce space since 2010, for brands big and small, including a nationwide care rental company and one of the UK's biggest financial comparison websites.

Building a business is hard. There’s excitement, terror and overwhelm. Add ecommerce to the mix, and you’re in for
a wild ride!

My website planning and design service helps you conquer the overwhelm of building or redesigning a website for your business. Whether you’re a product-based business looking for your first ever website or a seasoned business owner wanting to improve conversions and user experience, I’d love to help.

A nurturing and intuitive process where you feel heard and
your vision honoured

Together, we’ll plan out each element of your website, starting with the flow (website structure) and look and feel of the design. We have a simple goal in mind: make it easy and appealing for your website visitors to take action. Whether that’s a new sale, subscriber, or both.

After working with me, you’ll be the owner of a beautiful new website, designed to convert and easy to manage yourself.  

Modern, elevated design that your brand deserves.

My Brand Values

Stay Curious

Because the world is extraordinary… but it’s easy to forget to look with wonder.

Be Kind

Because kindness connects and heals the sad broken bits.

seek Simplicity

Because only a few things really matter.

listen

I love helping my clients create authentic and meaningful websites that truly work for them. Listening is a key part of understanding what they want and need.

My story

As a Media and Communications major, my first job after graduating was as a night sub-editor at the local regional newspaper. I loved that job. I left to go travelling and found another communications position at the UK’s biggest financial comparison website. Restless and yearning for South Africa after a few cold years, I moved back and found a digital marketing job at a strategic marketing agency for a tough boss who I now realise was a genius – she taught me how to think.

Experience

I’ve been working within the ecommerce space since 2010 for both large, nationwide brands and small, local ones.

I built my first Shopify website in 2015, for a small local business selling MTB and road bikes. I helped them appear on the first page of Google as a result of the SEO work I did (competing against all the big established bike retailers).

This lead to significant growth in organic sales. Back then we were doing no paid digital advertising – all online sales were from organic Google search. I was hooked on eCommerce after that lovely moment.

I left my agency job in 2016 to have a baby and in 2018 founded Nutmeg. From shakey beginnings (often with a tiny girl child sleeping in my lap),  I’ve since grown in confidence, clarity and expertise after helping many small businesses launch websites they’re proud to share.  It’s thrilling to watch these brands grow.

I’ve since become a mama of two and currently have another babe sleeping in my lap…
