Hey, I’m Gem, the web, branding and planner nerd behind Create & Bloom Digital Strategy + Design. I work with small creative business owners and entrepreneurs to craft, develop and crystallize an online presence and voice for their products and services.

I have been working in marketing, graphic design and building WordPress websites since 2013 – I am totally self-taught and I love helping creative business owners make their products and services shine.

I became hooked on illustration and graphic design whilst studying for my fashion design degree when using design software to illustrate and design clothing details. Whereas designing websites came about as a happy accident when I started an art blog and membership community called A Place for Creation, a few months after I started a business selling my illustrations (Mantra + Moon). Whilst rebuilding the site (probably about 15 times before I decided it was “finished”) it finally clicked that I love the chase of figuring out the hard stuff and getting right to the heart of what makes a website tick with seamlessly integrated systems, branding, marketing and simple usability. 

Whilst on my illustration business venture, I built and grew the creative community, launched #bigartboost and honed my web, graphic, marketing and illustrative skills then started to work with clients on their websites, branding, marketing strategies and helping others create a business they love through the power of planning.

Crafting visual voices for creative business owners is my speciality.

So, if you want to start taking your business to the next level with a brand that you love OR if you are in need of a brand refresh, I am here to help you get your ideas off the ground.

If you are ready to crystalise your online presence and voice with visuals and a home that makes your products & services shine, here is how I can help:
