you want to see your business flourish...

But it’s not easy standing out among the crowd. You want to stop worrying about ‘how’ to express your message clearly or if you are even attracting the right customer.

Or you just want to be done with the overwhelm of doing it yourself. You need a clear, cohesive visual identity that rolls out across all of your marketing material, social media, signage and digital platforms.

You are looking for someone who is able to visualise the right heart, gentleness and kindness that you’d like to convey..... yet still having the boldness and confidence that comes from knowing who you are and where you are headed.

I get it, you want a brand that you love,

a brand that is

authentically you

I can help you achieve that!

hello

I’m Megan Horsfall but I often get Megs, Megsie or even Meegs. As well as running Happy Splat Design, I have a love for coffee and my family (hubby + 5 kids, ranging from littlies to adults).

 

Let me help you develop a brand with a recognisable personality and style. Stop your business from disappearing into the crowd and give your business a brand voice that has a consistent and co-ordinated style, with a message tailored to your ideal audience.

the creative process

The design process is not a task that I take on by myself.
That’s right, you are part of the process. We work as a team.

Step 1 - Consultation + Homework

After your initial inquiry, we plan a Welcome Session to talk through your comprehensive Design Brief. A well thought-out brief always helps to deliver the best result. Take your time writing it, preferably whilst having a coffee. << that’s your Homework. As we explore your ideas and business goals, we also ensure we are a good fit.

Step 2 - Research + Sketching

Here I learn as much as I can about your business and your industry. This part takes lots of coffee. It is during this process that the ideas start to flow. I refer back to all my notes from our chat and begin to create. After sketching out my ideas, I refine the concepts and create them digitally. I take care to choose the perfect fonts & colours to convey a clear, concise message.

Step 3 - Presentation + Refinement

By now I have created some intentional and well thought out designs for you. The polished concepts are now presented to you, possibly whilst drinking coffee, along with an explanation of how they meet your brief & why they would be successful. Here you can squeal and say “eekk, I love them all” or I may revise or tweak them according to your feedback, to ensure that everything is perfect.

Step 4 - Celebration + Donuts

The design process finishes. We hug & smile, some people even do a little happy dance. I collate all of the beautiful final files and send them to you along with your Style Guide. We celebrate with a freshly brewed cuppa... and a donut ... with sprinkles of course!

Brand Strategy

is MORE THAN JUST A

good business idea!

Brand strategy is something that should never be done hurriedly. It takes an intentional and thoughtful approach to create a brand that speaks to your perfect audience.

Your business has a personality which is communicated through your branding. If you get your branding right, you will be saying the perfect things at the perfect time for the perfect client. If you get it wrong, you may never know what message it is sending about your business.

... it’s like a perfectly brewed cuppa

the creative process

No two business are the same and therefore no two business have the same needs. The Branding Packages are designed with individuality in mind as they give you the flexibility to choose exactly what you need for your business. From the very basics of strategic colour palettes to business cards, eBooks to vehicle signage. All designed to tell the story of your brand... one piece at a time.

How long will a branding project take?

The timeframe of a design project will vary depending on each individual brief. Generally, I like to allow several weeks for a full branding project. However, if you have a specific deadline then please make me aware and I will discuss your needs in terms of a timeframe during our consultation.

What are my responsibilities as Client?

The design process is a collaborative journey and we both have responsibilities to ensure a successful final product. I promise to respect your time and our set schedule, and I ask all my clients to do the same by being timely with providing feedback, sending content, etc. Major delays in client responses may result in our project being pushed back in my schedule and your deadline not being met.

What sort of payment plan do you offer?

A deposit of 50% is required to book in your project. The balance of the invoice is to be finalised prior to the handover of final files or at 30 days – whichever comes first.

I already have a logo and just need marketing material. Can you still help?

If you have a logo that you love AND it’s working for you, I am happy to chat to you about your design needs for your marketing material. I love creating all the ‘extra’ bits + pieces.

Revisons

Each step in the design process includes two rounds of revisions. Any additional revisions are charged at an hourly rate.

Do you only create girly stuff?

No, I have worked with many masculine brands over the years. If you would like to see examples of the ‘blokey brands’, just let me know and I’ll email my masculine samples.

Do you offer printing as well?

Print management is part of the service. All your printed material will be delivered directly to your door, including everything from business cards to pull-up banners.

What are your office hours?

If you need to contact me during our time spent working together or you need me to clarify anything, I am available on the phone or happy to answer questions  via email. My office hours are 9:30am to 5:00pm Monday – Thursday.** Please note, I don’t work nights or weekends but will respond to emails or calls during my contact hours.

How do I get started?

Download the Price Guide below or contact me directly via the contact page. You will be sent a link to book in for a FREE 15-minute consultation. From there we will discuss the next steps and whether we are a good fit for each other. Then we can begin the branding journey together.

Chocolate or Lollies?

Well, truth be told, I am a lolly-holic, candy girl. Jellybeans, snakes, raspberries, sour lollies…  oh joy of all joys! All the sweetness and sugar…. nom nom nom.

if that sounds like you

Let me help you develop a brand with a recognisable personality and style.
Stop your business from disappearing into the crowd and give your business a brand voice that has a consistent and co-ordinated style, with a message tailored to your perfect audience.
