Branding, Marketing & Design

Northern Ireland based marketing, branding & design expertise for small businesses

Need some help to grow your business?

If you are a small business owner who is struggling to keep up with publicising their business, look no further. In today’s visually aware & technology savvy society, small business owners often need to stand out with a professional brand, a top class experience, a nice website and social media accounts that convert to real customers. Finding the time to do all of this, have a life & run a business can seem overwhelming. I’m here to help solve this problem (in a cost effective way).

Marketing Strategy

With such a wealth of platforms and publications available today, it can be difficult to decide which are most appropriate for your business. Together we will break things down into bitesize chunks and put together a simple marketing strategy that will meet your business objectives - it could include anything from print advertisements through to running a launch party with social media influencers, scheduling content or a video introduction to your business.

Social Media Content Creation & Training

Struggling with your social media marketing? I can help keep your Facebook, Linkedin & Twitter up to date with interesting & relevant content by designing unique content such as graphics or video to help you stand out. I can even do it in Canva to empower you to create your own on-brand graphics. Perhaps you need a bit of training in how to publicise yourself on a Instagram, Facebook or Linkedin - we can even plan a custom training session tailored to your needs.

Graphic Design 
& Branding

Once I get to know you and your brand, it's time to bring it to life visually. I can design a custom logo, visual style and other marketing collateral such as popup banners and flyers, signage or web and social media graphics. It saves you the headache of working with multiple parties for design & marketing - I wear both hats so there's only one person to deal with.

Website Styling

Are you trying to create a starter website on website builder? Struggling to make it look as good as the template? I'll use my design skills to style it for you in line with your brand identity, help to word your copy and make sure it looks professional. I'm not a coder but I'm a useful person to have on hand for this sort of thing.

Recent campaigns

TruYou Yoga

I designed the logo and brand identity for TruYou Yoga in 2019. Julie & I met for coffee and I learnt all about the goals for the new direction she was taking her business. I then translated this into a logo & visual style, styled a Wix website for her and created social media & flyer advertisements to help target her East Belfast audience.

Big Belfast Choir

I have been heavily involved with the marketing of this choir since day one. I designed the brand identity and subsequently wrote & implemented their marketing strategy. I continue to manage their marketing on a weekly basis including running key Facebook campaigns. I also created all promotional designs for the choir and set up their wordpress website

Sandhill House

I designed the brand identity for wellness retreat Sandhill House in Summer 2019 as well as providing digital marketing consultancy ahead of their launch.
I re-styled their squarespace website in line with their new visual identity as well as leading the copywriting to ensure clear messaging. I then created a series of advertisement graphics for use on social media for an upcoming launch campaign.

Catalyst

I was responsible for the marketing & design for Catalyst until I went self employed in 2019. This included working on all associated marketing of their high profile events such as the Invent Awards and The Future Of Work Summit. My daily work included social media marketing, writing press releases, designing graphics & liasing with external suppliers such as videographers and printers to ensure the brand is reflected in the most professional way possible.

James Magee Automotive

I rebranded James Magee Automotive from JM Automotive and developed a visual style for the company that would set them apart as unique from other car companies. Previous the logo had been similar to several other car brands so we decided upon the strategy as putting the owners name in the main brand and creating a contemporary, professional style to reflect this high quality car company.

Ella & Boo

I designed a brand identity for Etsy store Ella & Boo which I then extended into business card designs to help promote Catherine's business when she was first starting her baby mobile business.

The design reflects the hand-sewn nature & craftsmanship of her work.

Exclusive Hair Company

I designed a brand identity for Exclusive Hair Company in Dunmurry, styled their shop interior and wix website in line with their new visual identity and even planned a launch night for the staff and customers to introduce their new look. There are few industries where brand experience is more important than in the hair & beauty industry. Take a look at what we came up with.

Roll With It

I illustrated the brand for Roll With It tribute band and set up their Facebook Page which has now grown to over 10,000 people.

I regularly design social media graphics, stage backdrops and collateral such as business cards too. I even got to see my illustration put onto a drum skin.

What my clients say

Tierna carried out a full rebrand for my business from top to bottom and gave me heaps of information and knowledge throughout the process. Worth every penny as I don’t believe a price can be put on what she has done for my business. Certainly not the end of the road working alongside her!
James Magee
Owner - James Magee Automotive
I came to Tierna at the early stages of my business and her combination of creativity and professionalism was exactly what I needed. She was wonderful to work with and despite me struggling to communicate what I wanted, she seemed to have an uncanny sense of how I wanted my brand to look & feel. She listened, took all of my ideas on board and the end result was perfect. Tierna delivered a brand identity that perfectly represents my vision and product. It is clean, professional and stylish. I love it!
Catherine McGrogan
Owner – Ella & Boo
Working with Tierna has been fabulous - she has it all; from social media & marketing expertise through to design & branding. She has a real flair for creativity, combined with practical experience and excellent business acumen - Tierna simply excels at every project! We were even a finalist in the Women In Business 2019 Awards for my pub choir campaign!
Aoife Cormacain
Founder – Big Belfast Choir
I'm delighted with the recent work Tierna did for me on rebranding an existing business. She just 'got it' from the start, and translated my jumbled ideas into an amazing logo, brand, name, and website that totally reflects the shift in what I'm offering. Tierna is incredibly talented at what she does, and creates clean, professional, stylish designs after really listening to what's important to you. I highly recommend her for any design and marketing work you need, and I'm looking forward to continuing to work with her as my brand grows.
