Hey. Thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet. My name is Gemma, I’m the founder of That’s Her Business and The Ladies Who Trade Coworking Space in Manchester. 

I’m a designer and I specialise in logos and brand identity.

where it all began

Originally from York, I moved to Manchester early 2018 and this is where my journey into self-employment began. I bought a small house in East Manchester and settled in with my partner, best friend and biggest supporter, Jack. 

Before this I actually worked at a local print company at home and became Studio Team Leader. 

Since then, I have worked with many female-led businesses to help them create the perfect brand identity.

things i like

Tea, pretty fonts, bright colours, coworking and useless gadgets I can connect to Alexa.

things i’m not so keen about

Forgetting about a cup of tea and not realising until it’s too late and the bloody English weather.
