About

Social Animals connect good design with good communication through your eyes, ears, intelligence and emotions. We're based in the Adelaide Hills and offer small businesses a homegrown package. If we can't do something, we know someone who does and will chase it down for you. We love simplicity and clarity in everything. We're here to help. Let's talk.

"I'm a big fan of keeping things simple. It's the way I live and the way I work. It's a cliché , but I believe design is communication. It's not art. It's not just making things pretty. It's solving problems and conveying ideas. Making things pretty is the easy part."

"I love to 'show' with my words rather than 'tell'.  I'm a big picture gal who works within the details. Being a persnickety grammar nazi who's conscious of SEO and accessibility means I can join all the pieces of the puzzle and get...digital strategy."
