With a background in retail visual merchandising display & design, my passion lies in activating and transforming spaces. I work with my clients to bring their vision to life, producing beautiful & creative spaces, at the same time ensuring a practical and functional approach.

Carols work spans across retail, regional and residential spaces. Not only do she conduct revamps, she also run a series of creative and interactive workshops that help inspire those in retail & residential environments looking to make a difference to improve their space. Carol considers herself a ‘Creative Coach’.  She often find her clients may already know what it is they’d like to achieve, they just need a little bit of help in shifting their creative compass moving in the right direction!

"I had a website that was hard to change and I wasn’t getting the results I wanted. When I went to see Glen he was so helpful, he helped me realise that online marketing isn’t just about having a website.  He managed the build of a new website and made sure it was all about the website visitor and their experience, regardless of the web developers objections.  He told me what the data was showing him and from that we changed a few things and with just one recommendation from him, we tripled our monthly sales!  I have highly recommended Glen to many friends who are in the same position that I was."
