Hi, I’m Candice McGaw Hourigan.

Web Designer | Brand Builder | Freethinker | Painter

I’m the founder of Paige Digital, a rebellious design studio on the Mornington Peninsula. But I’m so much more than a designer.

I’m here because I find a deep sense of joy in using my skills for good. And most of the time? Doing good looks a lot like uplifting and empowering female business owners.

You’re here because you’ve put your dream into motion. And when you work with me, we’ll collaborate to form the colours, shapes and lines of your business – or to build a website that’s both functional and eye-catching.

Done well, your visual identity will tell a story without saying a word.

 

But first, you’re here to learn a little more about me, right?

Do you want to know what a degree in Fine Arts taught me?

Since a young age, I have been sensitive to art and the way it makes me feel.

So, a degree in Fine Arts solidified what I’ve long believed to be true:

There’s a purpose behind the colours, shapes, lines and patterns we use.

They trigger emotions, tell a story, share values and build relationships.

So, it’s little wonder how I got here, hey? Creating visual identities that capture the essence of your brand.

A degree in Fine Arts also taught me how to tenaciously follow the right side of my brain. To run free and colour outside the lines. To question what’s usual and to push the unusual.

But since my untamed Fine Arts years, I’ve learnt the value of rules.

You see, there are times that they need to be followed to create a functional and logical website and brand – and I’m here for it.

This is why my work is a blend of logic, structure and fierce creativity. A blend of right brain and left brain. Nowadays, I choose to run wild within set boundaries.

And the only other thing I need is you: A spirited, small business owner who’s looking to tell their story.

Websites, colours and logos aside,

who am I?

I’m a Mum to a curly-headed, thoughtful little boy. And this imaginative soul is a big part of what I do and why I do it.

I crave adventure – whether that’s to my local beach or twirling fettuccini on a cliff-top in Italy.

Speaking of food, I’m a terrible cook (great at eating, though). I love painting – mostly abstract places, objects and food (there it is again).

I’m an ENFP – which stands for Extroversion, Intuition, Feeling and Perceiving.

What does this mean for you? I crave human connection. I love collaboration. I’m empathetic, heart-led, flexible and open-minded. I care about what’s important to you.

And most importantly, my vibrant energy will flow through your project.

So, what do you say, shall we meet for a (virtual) cuppa?
