Nadine and Gen laughing

Hope Gathers Design Studio was founded by Nadine in 2017. A go-getter who was ambitious to turn her dream into reality.

The studio expanded in 2021 and is no longer a one-woman show, but rather a beautifully aligned business with two strangely unique sisters who are now running the show together.

Nadine is the creative OCD brand designer who runs front of business, connects with clients and helps them to build reputable branded businesses. She is incredibly passionate about what she does, extremely determined to see businesses thrive and she is a kick-ass mother too!

Nadine invited her sister, Genevieve to be her side-kick and partner in crime – to help her grow the business to its full potential.

Genevieve is more of the academic and actually the smartest out of the two, (although still can’t out-smart Nadine’s wit.) She co-ordinates all of our projects and systems as well as manages our finance department.

With Nadine being the eldest, she feels entitled to be the bossy boots of this interesting combination. However, Gen is the back bone and definitely makes sure she takes her stand.

This, my dear friend, is exactly why we truly believe that we are the ultimate dream team.

We may be a bit weird together, but we always hold strong values and have our clients’ best interests at heart. We are passionate about bringing value and quality to every project and client that we are grateful to work with.

My mission is to fulfil all your design requirements through my 15 years of design experience. I believe that less is more and I have a modern yet unique flavour to my design style. 

I enjoy being surrounded by my 3 beautiful children and nature as much as possible, which is where I get a lot of my creative inspiration from. I am a Pinterest freak and love looking at many current trends.

With my branding and business knowledge we will brainstorm every element of your business and then dive into creating a brand that is perfectly designed for you and your dream client.

Through my brand strategy session, we will identify your target audience, niche, demographics, your goals, vision and your voice. I aim to incorporate some personal elements of YOU into your brand as well, as I believe this makes your brand more authentic and will give you confidence within yourself as an entrepreneur as well as in your brand.

I am easy to work with and I am open-minded. However, I do prefer to work with women who trust me as their branding expert, and know that I am here to help guide them through their own business journey. My ideal client is someone who aligns with my values, is open to my expertise, and is self-motivated to succeed in their dream business.

I am super excited to share this amazing journey with you by helping you and your brand grow to new heights.

MEET YOUR PROJECT CO-ORDINATOR

Genevieve Cousins

 

From a very young age, I always wanted to be an “executive”. I even got calculators and briefcases for Christmas, that’s how much I wanted to be my own boss. Life had other plans for me and I ended up in the corporate 9-5 rat race. I constantly searched for what I wanted in life, and this lead me on a 5-year journey overseas in the US and Vietnam.

Traveling during these years was a great experience and I would highly recommend venturing the world to anyone. It was a great time for me to truly be alone with my thoughts and do some serious soul searching. It taught me patience and tolerance of different people and cultures, and it gave me independence at a young age and taught me to manage my time well. Most importantly, I concluded that I craved control of my own freedom and my finances more than ever.

My traveling experience drew to a quick close when Nadine offered me a business opportunity. I had been searching for my place in the world for a long time, so when she asked me to join HG Studio to use my life experiences and acquired skills to help grow her business, I just could not refuse. So, I hopped on a flight back home to start this new adventure with my best friend, and this is where our exciting journey began together.

You will see more of Nades as she is the face of the business, runs front-end and is great at working her creative magic, while I will be predominantly behind the scenes pulling it all together.

We are super passionate about life and constant growth, and our enthusiasm will definitely carry through to you and your business!

So, buckle up and join us for the ride.

Favourite Q & A

A brand is more than just a logo and I’m a firm believer in going beyond a logo to tell your brands full story. For this reason, we do not offer one-off logos. We specialise in developing strategic brand identities that work as a cohesively to attract your ideal client. 

I believe branding is most impactful when it’s authentic & cohesive. When you try to piece together different elements from existing designs, it will more than likely look disjointed, which will not speak to your ideal audience. Allowing me to have total creative freedom over your branding will bring forward the best results possible. I do not work on other designers work to help fellow designers maintain their own integrity.

Yes! We understand that branding is an investment, so the overall costing of your project can be spread evenly throughout the project timeline.
