GET TO KNOW ME
NICE TO MEET YOU
WordPress designer for small businesses
Seven years ago, I walked away from a full-time job in marketing to pursue my dream of being self-employed. I’m driven by creativity and desire to help small businesses grow, but I felt restricted by corporate guidelines and pleasing a board of directors. I now love the freedom that comes with being my own boss, and also supports my mental health, which I often talk about.
Unlucky for some but lucky for me, on Friday 13th June 2014, I left my job and officially launched Cariad Creative full time the following Monday. My business gives me great fulfillment when I can help other entrepreneurs build their businesses online and see the results they have been longing for, for so long. I bring my experience of having worked on large-scale, global marketing campaigns for corporates, to my clients, as I create websites with marketing in mind.
Over the last seven years, I have listened tirelessly to small businesses owners, getting a deep understanding of what they need in order to grow. I’ve taught myself how to effectively use WordPress and incorporate my creative, marketing and communication skills to not only build my own venture, but inspire other business owners to flourish online too.
In the years since launching the business, so much has changed. From humble roots where I began by supporting local small businesses in Barry, Cardiff and The Vale of Glamorgan, I now proudly work with and teach SMEs throughout the UK on how to grow their businesses online – sharing daily tips and advice on Instagram and through my private Facebook community.
When not designing websites or getting clued up on the latest digital marketing trends, you’ll find me drinking my weight iced coffee, keeping my three-year old occupied and watching re-runs of Friends, because it never gets old.

I was introduced to Katrina at Cariad Creative by a family member who was one of her happy customers. At the time I was in desperate need of someone to carry out administrative work on my website, and she was the right person for the job. A few months later I was launching a new production company and commissioned her to build my new website – what I needed was a fresh, clean design which still had all the vital information customers wanted, and she delivered in full. If your looking for a web designer or web administrator I highly recommend Katrina.
