May 2022 – I stumbled across this video a few years ago on YouTube and instantly fell in love with it, so I wanted to share it with you. 
One of my favourite parts of my job is looking at the origins and history behind a brief. Being able to really understand how and why things were designed and created in a certain way is really interesting and I like to see how things have changed through time. Be it printing processes, typography, production, the use of shape and colour etc. The list goes on!
I’m a bit of a mixed bag of inspiration. I love historical and traditional design styles (not just in graphic design but interior, architecture, art) but I also love modern & innovative design which is why my job is so much fun!
After watching this short film about Annie, it really inspired me to spend a bit more time out of work reading up about graphic design through history and seeing if it inspires me to create some fun side projects. I loved the part of the film where she is creating the props by hand because this is how it would have actually have been done at the time and I love the authenticity of the process.
I hope you like it!!

April 2022 - I am really excited to celebrating Meraki Creative Design turning 5! I could never in my wildest dreams have imagined the journey that starting my on business would take me on. There's been A LOT of learning on how to run a business, how to work around two little girls and a lot of growing as a creative designer but I have had the best time and have been very fortunate to have worked with some amazing businesses and individuals along the way. I am looking forward to what the future holds!
