I’m very passionate about ethical living and sustainability and when it came to making the leap and starting my own ethical branding and design agency I was extremely conscious that I wanted to create a business that reflected my values and also, in a small way, make our world a better place!

I work hard to remain true to my ethical design ethos and use suppliers that are renowned for their sustainable mission (my printers are vegan and vegetarian society approved and I use ethical banking and energy). I keep everything digital to reduce paper wastage and deal with clients around the world using Skype and digital tools to communicate. 

I also focus on all the little day to day things and aim to live a sustainable and ethical life wherever I can. I avoid plastic and general waste – I use KeepCups and re-usable water bottles and support local suppliers, travel on public transport and cycle to meetings. I also love to meet up for a cup of tea with local businesses around Stockport, Manchester and Cheshire to chat about ideas (mine is an Earl Grey or Matcha Latte). 

The best BRANDING in every sense is one that is sustainable & ETHICAL.  IT may cost a little more but IT costS the earth a lot less.

From furniture design to branding design, we are aching for things that last, that are beautifully crafted and don’t exploit in any way. They may cost a little more but they cost the earth a lot less. I approach my branding and design in the same way and I aim to produce ethical branding that lasts. I’ll also make sure everything we get printed and produced is sustainable and necessary. I can advise on suppliers and the best ways to market yourself whilst maintaining sustainable and ethical standards.

I’ve recorded a podcast with the incredible “Ethical Hour” where I talk about why I decided to start an Ethical Design Agency and I discuss how branding your business can make a big difference in attracting the right type of customers and clients.
