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.

"Working with Nancy and her team is effortless - a quick grasp of concept, exceptional ideas and all with very little revision. High quality and attention to detail of the finished product in addition to post production support means I can't recommend mums the word highly enough."

“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.”
