Tess’ passion is helping people achieve their business goals through smart and good-looking design. Clients enjoy working with Tess not only for her creative, clear and concept-driven design work but for her reliability, efficiency, critical-thinking skills and friendly demeanour. She brings her left and right brain to every project.
More recently Tess has created a hub of inspiration for business owners who rely on creativity to make a living.
Creative Minds exists to provide practical advice and oodles of inspiration for creative business owners.
Feeling overwhelmed by the organisational, financial and marketing side of her creative business, Tess started looking for ways to minimise the burden of administrative tasks so she could get back to doing the creative work she loved.
The Branding for Makers panel at the Makers in Business Online Symposium features Tess as host, chatting with Lauren Hassett of Middle Child, Ashley Dyer of Uncle Phuncle and Sarah Stanford of Novelise about all things brand.
Did we mention she’s also an author? Tess is a powerhouse of creative output and channelled that into Graphic Design Speak, a way for those who aren’t familiar with the jargon of the design world to be able to work with a professional with the empowerment of the language.
