Telling your story
WITH BRAND DESIGN + WEB DESIGN
Every business has a story to tell, something that is driving them. Lets’ tell your story together. Our processes are tailored to getting to know you and your vision and how design can truly represent your story and draw attention to you. We encourage all of out clients to be unapologetically, unashamedly themselves. We don’t believe in airs and graces, or false pretences. We are 100% genuinely invested in authentic representations of you.
So what does a designer actually do? In a nutshell designers create information systems in a beautiful, aesthetically pleasing way – in simple terms, a designer takes what you want to say and makes it look good and function really well.
Does that sound like exactly what you need? When we work together. I get to the heart of your business and design with your mission, vision and values in mind so that the work is a true reflection of where you are going.
Duende Studio fosters a community spirit and that is why we have a collaborative team that works together to bring your vision to reality, building design, text and images that truly speaks to the heart of your audience. Learn more about our collaborators and what motivates them.

Founder, design creative and marketing
I founded the studio as Duende Design in 2015 and specialise in creating dynamic brands and websites. At the core of the studio is the belief that every woman in business should be authentically themselves and I encourage all of my clients to align their own values and ethics with their business so that they can carry themselves with confidence and clarity. With a background in design and marketing, I have developed a range of curated packages for businesses from startups to seasoned entrepreneurs with the ability to add on other creative services such as copywriting and photography.
