Lara Stephenson

Co-founder and Creative Director

When I encounter a women changing the world through business, it fills me with the zeal of a pigeon who’s just spotted a bowl of seeds.

My background is in design. Graphic, web, visual, brand, video – in a nutshell, communication design. I’m also a bit of a computer-fan. Since I was 8, I’ve been interested in how they work and the technical side of digital things. Bringing those two together means I have a great variety of interest in helping people bring their business to life through design, plus run their digital operations smoothly and supportively. As a past-time tutor, I also make a point to share how clients’ designs and systems work so they’re empowered to make changes and know how they work.

For the past 7 years or so, since social enterprise came onto my radar, I’ve developed a keen belief that business for good is the way of the future. In recent years I’ve dived into impact measurement and am currently bringing a suite of tools and supports for people to measure their own impact, into the world.
