My business was forged from passion and wanderlust; a way to sustain my street-food-and-beers habit doing what I loved whilst I wandered through South East Asia, Mexico, Europe and New Zealand. A graduate in Design for Visual Communication and former agency Art Director, I have built Ink & Honey from a side-hustle run from hostel bars and balconies to a comprehensive design studio offering bespoke visual branding and website design for freedom seeking, fearless creative female founders.
My job is to take that passion, that spark at the heart of your brand and to weave it into every facet of your visual identity so that you can crack on with taking over the world, safe in the knowledge that your branding is captivating your audience in their own love language.
I was born in Yorkshire, UK although I've also lived in Vietnam, New Zealand and London. Never really enamoured by the traditional path, I founded Ink & Honey whilst backpacking through SE Asia, Central America and Europe, and have since taken it from side hustle to full time gig.
“First time I have actually enjoyed the process of working with a designer. Clare seems to ask just the right questions to get to know your business and does her magic of translating that into visuals that truly represent what you do ”
The name Ink & Honey is about creating big things from small and elemental beginnings. The ink in which every great novel is printed. The bee that takes pollen and makes honey. The spark of an idea that is the beginning of every creative business.
That spark, and the wildly passionate business owners that carry it – that is my why. That is my beginning.
