A Quick Introduction

Hi, I’m Heather Maloney, founder and creative director at Design Engine.

I work one to one with our clients, as the lead designer and account manager for all projects.

I’ll be honest with you, I love my job.
Working with clients, delving into their businesses and creating design to help them move forward really is my passion!

I started Design Engine to help growing businesses get the same results from their design and marketing that the big agencies were giving the big guys... just without the huge price tag!

And 15 years on, that’s still what we’re all about. Now more than ever, we firmly believe that every business deserves the best tools to help them to succeed.
