In an increasingly visual world, it's becoming much harder for companies to stand out from the crowd.

I believe, now more than ever, these companies need to be in the Limelite.

I empower businesses to bring their vision to life through powerful bespoke branding. As a result, this enables them to deeply connect with those they serve, and thrive in the marketplace.

At Limelite Creative, businesses are my partners, not my clients. I work by their side to transform visions into reality by tackling their branding stumbling blocks and focusing them towards achieving the results they actually want.

The businesses I serve want a simple and smooth experience. I deliver the full package from concept, to design, to artwork with no middle men (or women).

I’m Alison, owner of Limelite Creative.

“I transform businesses who are ready to elevate and invest in their brand, locally and overseas. I share a common goal with the people I serve to bring out the best in their brand.”

I love what I do

And what I do is so much more than a job

I love what I do.
I love helping real people, just like me.
I love meeting interesting and inspiring businesses.
I love conceptualising and bringing ideas to life.
I love that special connection I get with the people I help.
I love the trust that people put in me to help them with their vision.
I love being the professional interface whom they choose to reinterpret what they need.
I love seeing reactions when I reveal what I’ve produced.
I love that what I do can transform people and their businesses, helping them to become even more profitable.
I love when a business partnership also turns into friendship.
I love that I can do all of this as my own business.

Quite simply... I love what I do.

The people and businesses I've had the pleasure of working with only have nice things to say ...

  • I won a competition last year with the fabulous prize of a complete branding package for my new business. The alternative would have been a DIY effort so I am eternally grateful to Alison for such a generous prize. I didn’t have a particularly clear idea of what I wanted but somehow Alison managed to work her way through all my vague notions and come up with a logo that is absolutely perfect. She has gone way above and beyond what I expected.  I highly recommend Limelite Creative and can’t thank Alison enough for all she’s done to help get my business off the ground.

  • I cannot recommend Alison highly enough. She really took the time to get to know us and understand our brand, our ideas, our thoughts and our plans for the future! She was a joy to work with and I will be using Limelite Creative for all our future work. Thanks Alison – you are our superstar (and Teddy says hi!).

  • Alison helped us out this year when we were looking at a new logo. She listened to our vague remit (as our skills lie elsewhere) and came up with suggestions & ideas. She is an exceptionally talented businesswoman & very professional in terms of quality of work & keeping to the timescales she promises. Would have no hesitation in recommending Limelite Creative.

  • Had the great pleasure of working with Alison on rebranding of my company. She understood exactly what I wanted and delivered a fantastic result in no time at all. My new logo is sleek, modern, relevant and sexy, making my brand stand out from the competition. Alison exceeded all my expectations. She’s a true professional with high standards, fast turnaround and real passion for the job. I would highly recommend her services. Ludmila from KEYK (formerly Blitz Patisserie).

  • I hired Alison earlier this year as a freelance designer to help us through an expansion period. Alison’s ability to take on new projects quickly that were both complex and high level was crucial. I’ve been thoroughly impressed with her professional design skills and superb approach to work and would highly recommend Alison for any new projects.
