Design intensives

Tackle your key design woes in one go with a single satisfying deep focus session. Have my undivided attention, expertise and skillset applied to the area of your business you feel needs the help now.

Skip the waiting list*, no long-term commitment, just ticking off your design checklist – fast. 

*I generally allocate 2 design intensives per month


Perfect for you if...

→ if you have a limited budget and time to invest but want to move forward regardless

→ if you don’t feel like making a big commitment to design right now

→ if you need strategic, creative insight, crave feedback or support with decision-making; you would benefit from an outside set of eyes

→ if you have a sense (or feedback) that your presence or website is confusing or doesn't reflect you and your values or offering accurately

→ if you have elements of your brand identity ready but struggle to bring them together into a cohesive, easy-to-use style 


→ if you feel the digital or physical experience you provide could perform better

→ if your materials are tired and you have outgrown them, you are looking for updates and elevation

→ if you have an urgent design or strategy task: a new product to launch, a pitch deck, proposal, templates, podcast graphics,... 

→ if you know your audience and what you are helping them with

→ if you like to move quickly and are happy with a fast pace and quick decisions 

‘The app is now converting 80% of downloads to users – up from 50% with the old designs. Nice work, Magdalena!’

What could we tackle in a day?

Every session is custom, no two sessions are ever the same. They are always wrapped around your needs. To give you some ideas of what we could focus on:

01. UX/UI, webdesign

Mini UX audit: I will review your website and collate feedback in a document with actionable steps to improve usability and conversions

Naming, product naming, and organising information in an intuitive user-friendly way

Single pages design: additional pages to your existing website, landing pages, microsites,...

Onboarding flow redesign: Redesign the onboarding process to help more new users get started smoothly.

Improve visual hierarchy, simplify and declutter by reorganizing, removing unnecessary elements and prioritizing essential ones

Work on your user personas 

02. Brand and strategy

Mini brand/visual style audit: I will review your brand presence across all your channels, gather the feedback in a clear document with actionable steps for you to improve consistency, clarity and style

Brand identity refresh: Elevate your look and feel with typography, logos, colours or imagery tweaks

Basic logo updates and "facelifts", additional logo variations etc.

Mini brand/visual style guidelines: all elements in one place, easy to understand and use; document to easily share with your partners

Creating custom patterns, icon sets, illustrations

Selecting and editing polished photography set to be used again and again

Product prototyping; helping you refine your idea with mockups and prototypes

03. Branding Collateral

Business materials: proposals, price lists, offers, welcome packs,...

Print and physical collateral: gift vouchers, leaflets, roll-ups, signage, menus, signage stationery...

Digital collateral: course launch graphics, workbooks, checklists, soc. media templates, newsletter templates...

Presentations templates to use again and again

Clear infographics, schemes and graphs

The process


01. Reach out and book your date

02. Pay the invoice and lock your date in

Discovery and planning

03. Fill out the questionnaire(s) and share all the relevant materials (logins, existing assets, soc. media accounts etc). You will be onboarded to your client portal.

04. Clarity call: a 45-minute discussion to understand your business, goals, and design pain points, ensuring a focused and productive day. We will define the Brief: priorities, objectives, deliverables. We will discuss how to get the most out of our time together. 

05. Kick-off call: 2 days before the session we will check everything is in place, we are both happy with the Brief and ready to go.  


05. Design intensive session: I split the session into 2 1/2 days to create more space for your decisions. I will prepare a review for you by the evening of the day 1. You will have time to make decisions overnight, sending the approval or comments by the next morning. We will finalise the deliverables by the evening of day 2. Your total time with me is 8 hrs of creative time across two working days.


06. Post-session follow-up: You’ll have access to me via Slack, WhatsApp or email for 1 week to ensure you're on the right track and to answer any follow-up questions you might have.

You have access to my add-ons if you decide you would prefer to dedicate more time.

‘My clients loved the work—very clean and crisp! I highly recommend.’

Magdalena Peddle

I bring 16+ years of award-winning international experience in digital + spatial design and strategy into your Design intensive session. I love creating inspiring and meaningful experiences across digital and physical environments, leveraging design as a driving force of positive change.

I supported the Mind, Body & Soil team with design before their successful buyout by Crocus – the largest online gardening retailer in the UK. I helped to launch Binit: a nimble waste management challenger. With Echoes, we achieved 50% revenue growth in 12 months and designed the ‘Music for Trees’ mobile app for the Royal Parks and the Royal Academy of Music.
