I'm owner and creator of Dani Lunn Design Studio, a graphic design studio specialising in layout design and branding. I come from a background in publishing design and my passion is designing layouts that are destined for the printed form. I'm old fashioned at heart and adore beautiful design that is in the paper form. I'm constantly inspired by the passionate and innovative people I meet along the way through the business.
What inspired you to start your own business?
My business started organically and I was inspired to create the business to attract the clients I would love to work with. A big bonus in running your own business is having the freedom to choose your own clients and choose your working hours that suit you!
What's the biggest challenge you've faced as a female founder?
Having my photo taken for the Dani Lunn Design Studio website... I haaaate being in front of the camera! In all seriousness, there are many hurdles that come your way as a business owner and it can be challenging to overcome your fears and to always keep going. But if you don't keep going and strive to be better, there is nobody that is going to do it for you so just keep going!
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who shared this with you?
I can't remember who exactly told me this but outsource as much as you can that you aren't skilled at or confident in. Hands down I never regret outsourcing an area that's not my specialty... outsource, outsource, outsource!
