Bringing small businesses brands to life through marketing & design expertise.
Who am I?
My name is Tierna Byrne (BDes Hons, ACIM) and I am highly experienced and fully qualified in both Marketing and Graphic Design. I specialise in helping startups to get off to a good start through establishing their brands using creative design, social media & online marketing. Think of me as a one woman band who can audit your current marketing strategy, help write a plan to suit your customers and I’ll bring it alive through my marketing expertise. Not only that but I can design your brand identity and all of your marketing collateral too; from social media advertisements through to flyers, business cards & popup stands. I’m a handy person to have around.

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).
With such a wealth of platforms 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 management & training
Can't keep up with your social media? 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. Perhaps you need a bit of training in running paid ads or even just the basics of how to publicise yourself on a instagram, facebook or Linkedin - we can 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.
Recent successful campaigns
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
