Hello you – you lovely so’n’so! Thanks for a) stopping by my blog and b) clicking links to get to know me better. I’m Stacey, a 25-year-old Geordie living in Manchester (although I’ve been here so long now my accent is like a very milky tea (which by the way, if you’re making one…). Six years ago I moved from one rainy place in the north to another rainy place in the north to study at university and even though I despise essays, lectures *insert anything to do with traditional studying here*, for whatever reason, I decided to torture myself some more and go back to do a Master’s Degree. Finally I am study book free and taking on the world of self-employment with a girl boss attitude as my weapon.
I’m also the creator behind Stacey Michelle Design and creative business Hippo & Co. (my favourite place on the internet where I get to get to design (and make) lots of fun goodies for fun-stuff-lovin’-kinda-folk. I LOVE my job and love nothing more than to spend my afternoon drinking tea, chomping (dunkable!) biscuits and designing until my heart’s content. My ultimate work-from-home dream is to have a fluffy golden retriever snoozing at my feet.
I know you’re thinking blah blah blah, shut up talking about tea and dogs and tell me what the heck you can do for me. Ok so straight off the bat, this is what I’m good at…
- Branding: Designing is my number one thing and I can work with you to create a brand that you (and everyone else!) will love. Designing is my passion and I love nothing more than receiving an email from a very happy client to say that they love their finished result – it gives me a buzz and fuels my instaiable enthusiasm (much like cake!). I will work with you to create some fancy brand stuff that gives your website and stationery the ‘wow’ factor. We’ll collaborate to nail your logo design and then I can create a whole host of stationery to compliment your brand as you busy yourself shouting about your new business from the rooftops.
- Reviewing Websites: I know that running a business is hard and getting off with a speedy start is even blimmin’ harder. I offer a service whereby I will review your website and offer advice as to where you can improve to make your customer experience even better – sometimes all it needs is an extra (and objective!) pair of eyes.
- Writing: I’m not going to lie, I’m no legend like JK Rowling (I mean, besides her – who is?!), but my writing is not too shabby. Having spent five years at university, I’ve had more than my fair share of writing in-depth pieces on a tight timescale. If you’d like me to write about something – a product review or a service you provide then get in touch and we’ll chat some more.
