creative design for print & new media

mums the word is a down-to-earth, approachable design agency with a flair for all things creative. We are as versatile and varied as our clients, offering exceptional design across many sectors.


We specialise in all disciplines of design, including; branding, website design, packaging design, office interiors, corporate literature and print, illustration, large format and anything else that wets our whistle. 

We try not to just think outside the box, but on its edge, its corner, and under its flap, working harder to better ourselves with every brief.




We build brands from the ground up, injecting life and personality from your brief out into the world. Whether you're the next big start-up or an established brand needing an overhaul, we've got it covered.



A well-constructed and easily navigable website is an essential part of any brand. We like our websites to not only function but to stand out and perform.



Print is not dead, there's always something nice about having something to hold in your hand. So whether it's brochure design, report & accounts, pitch documents or just the humble flyer we can deliver it.


and the rest...

We get asked to do other stuff too, no job too small or large - packaging design, infographics, advertising, office interior, marketing collateral, building wraps and large format print.


We have used mums the word for our external communications since launch – every project has been delivered on brief and on time and any amendments are always managed promptly. Nancy and her team now understand our brand implicitly and as such work on a myriad of projects including brochures, presentations,  branding and interior design.  Would highly recommend Mums the word  for any design project.

“Intelligent visual communication is fundamental to our business; Nancy provides graphic representations that cuts through the noise and resonates with our regional cultures. Her work is sensitive to Africa’s variety of landscapes and colloquialisms, yet cutting edge and innovative on an international level. We simply could not work without her contribution.”

thank you for the excellent work on our website once again. Your work has been exceptional from the concept design through the build stage and now when we need quick additions and amends to support important sales initiatives you react quickly. 


Been a pleasure working with Mums The Word. It's great to work with a design Agency that is very creative but also efficient and commercially aware as well."

Rob Kelly - CEO - Displayways

When it came to scoping out and forming a brand for my new company, there was no doubt in my mind who to ask. Mums the word is creative, on trend and totally understood what I was trying to achieve. 


They totally nailed the brand. It’s exactly what I wanted and more. Mums the word are definitely worth their weight in gold and we look forward to working with them on lots of projects in the future.
