work with me
I VALUE BEING…
F R I E N D L Y
I believe in the importance of a strong working relationship, so from the moment you get in touch, you’ll find me friendly, approachable and interested! Taking the time to get to know you and the story behind your business ensures each project is a fun and enjoyable experience!
S U P P O R T I V E
I thrive on supporting the success of others. Think of me as your creative partner, helping to realise your ambitions by delivering creative solutions to fuel your business.
T R U S T E D
I recognise and appreciate the trust my clients put in me. The best results are achieved when both project and people are treated with respect, so I place great importance on being open, honest and communicative.
the services I offer
Think of me as your Creative Partner; delivering brand identity, packaging, website design, marketing and print management services. Whatever the goal, I aim to deliver creative solutions which fuel your business.
a perfect partnership
You’re a founder-managed or family-run businesses with a vision! Perhaps you’re just getting started and need a complete brand identity, or your growing business requires additional creative support. You’re looking for a creative partner who shares your motivation and can work with you to bring your ideas to life.
To deliver the best results for your project, some elements I will create personally, whilst others require the involvement of third party experts. From website and app development to illustration and photography, I will collaborate with other creatives and ensure everything we create is on brand, on time and in budget.
what’s in a name? why “porridge”?
As an endurance runner, I advocate that porridge* is the best fuel for outdoor adventures. It’s wholesome, nutritious and powers you through. Fuel doesn’t need to be fancy, it needs to be effective, reliable and, most importantly, work for you. I believe design is the same. The right creative fuel can power your business through all kinds of adventures. So, are you ready to take that first step?
*very closely followed by peanut butter and jam sandwiches but that’s a far less catchy name!
Having had the pleasure of working with Helen for over 5 years, on what probably adds up to hundreds of Gibsons projects, I can safely say that she is a dream creative partner. Her ability to take a brief and make it a reality is second to none. No request is ever too much and she goes the extra mile to deliver projects to deadlines and to the highest possible standard.
Helen helped us to distill our company mission and values to their core components, which ultimately formed the basis of our new brand. She expertly guided us through the process, iterating on the colours and logo designs to give us a brand that embodies our company and resonates with our customers.
Helen was instrumental in helping us develop our brand. Early on, she created profile boards which were incredibly helpful in communicating our new business to potential suppliers and informing our buying decisions to ensure we stayed on track. Helen took time to listen to us, responded well to feedback, and has developed a brand identity that we are beyond proud of. We would not hesitate to recommend Porridge Design.
how much does it cost?
Each project is unique so prices are based on individual requirements, however I understand it’s useful to have a bit of a guide. Brand identity creation prices start from £1800 with more comprehensive projects including defining user personas, establishing your brand voice and developing a broader selection of brand assets.
If you have a project you would like to discuss I would love to hear from you!

It’s also a chance for you to ask me any questions and feel comfortable trusting me with your project.
