My promise is simple. I collaborate, create and breathe life into brands for individuals and companies alike. Having braved the manic advertising agency life for 4 years, I’ve collected experiences (the good, the bad and the ugly) and poured them into my freelancing career which has evolved massively since I started 4 years ago. I’ll call a spade a spade: I love what I do, and your brand will love it too.




In 2019, brand identity is EVERYTHING. If your brand isn’t worthy of a double-take then it needs a creative kick. Let’s tell a story, let’s make some magic and let’s make your brand pop!


Print is print, right? Wrong! When you nail a print artwork it can be one of the most effective mediums in telling your brand story. Cook Books, print adverts, magazine layouts, event collateral – you name it, I design it (pretty damn well too).

Web Design

A good website is an essential weapon in any brand’s arsenal, I mean it is the digital age after all. I offer WordPress solutions, templates you can update yourself and a seamless web experience to modernise your brand.


You’d think that a little thumbs-up icon isn’t that important, but it is. It’s time to boost your social media presence and start racking up those likes ASAP. Digital is king.


The best product in the world is worthless if its packaging doesn’t make you want to grab it! Make sure your product is just as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside (cheesy, I know) with some perfectly balanced packaging.


When I’m not toiling away behind my screen building brands from the ground up – I create some personal pieces of artwork. They’re predominantly doodles, but hey, anything can be called ‘art’ nowadays. Want a custom piece of your own? Let me know.


Honesty – In an age where freelancers constantly over-promise, I like to keep it real. I’m not ashamed to call out my limitations, but I have an all-star cast of freelancers that I partner with who assist me in creating and executing a top-to-toe marketing experience for you.

Why miss ruby is different

To be frank, I don’t have the overheads that an agency does, so you won’t need to take out a second mortgage to get agency-quality artwork. Honesty and integrity have lead me to my fair-share of success and I strive to be a freelancer you can trust. After all, working with me is a partnership and not just a flash in the pan.

Sometimes our clients say nice things about working together.

We have been working together for the last few years on a range of different projects and no matter how big or small a job is, the quality of service that we receive is consistently of the very highest standard. Lisa will go out of her way to ensure that she does not only just meet our expectations, but exceed them and she does this with such flair, creativity, professionalism and clear and concise communication.

“The Portland Project has been working closely with Miss Ruby Designs from the very beginning. We needed a designer that could easily and quickly visualize our, off-centred, ideas on logo’s and designs. Today our pack designs, logo’s and branding has become one of the most talked about aspects of our business. In a large part, we can thank Lisa for our companies growing and continued success!”
