Hi, I’m Dani.
I’m the founder & creative director of Neverland Studio, a design agency for inspired brands. I’m also the creator of The Brand Bazaar, a branding marketplace for entrepreneurs.
Everything I create is designed especially for the modern entrepreneur who wants to make a bang with their brand image. I’m a big believer in the potential of awesome branding… a captivating and cohesive brand identity is everything, and it’s so important to nail it right from the start.
I’m a passionate traveller and am at my happiest when I’m exploring. I’m also a bicycle rider, a dog person, and a big-time doer. My favourite quote is “You know all those things you wanted to do? Well, you should go do them!“.
I am currently based in Melbourne, Australia.
Now let me tell you a little about Neverland…
In the tale of Peter Pan, Neverland is described as a place deep within the minds of children, “always more or less an island” and never the same from one child to the next. A person’s Neverland is a place of imagination, with no boundaries and endless adventures.
My Neverland is a creative place… bold, bright and energetic. Electric colours, hand-crafted details and whimsical illustrations fill its every inch. It is a place of inspiration and excitement. There have always been thousands of creative ideas just waiting to escape it, so there was no other path for me.
Right from the start I’ve been on my creative mission. First stop was an advertising studio up in Brisbane. It was a great job, and I got to work on some big-name projects, but I knew from the get-go that it just wasn’t me. I didn’t fit in with the clean-cut office crew, or the corporate work that came my way. So I used my time there to learn a trick or two about making a message pop to the right market, then I packed my bags and kept walking. My next role was in the entertainment and events industry, creating tour art and the like for international dance acts, music festivals and events. The creative nature of the work (and the fun, young team) was right up my alley, but the fast-paced nature of the industry left me yearning for more time to pour into each individual creation.
Neverland was born in 2012, and I’ve thrived off helping entrepreneurs transform their big ideas into captivating creative projects ever since.
My work is sleek, energetic and electric. I combine hand-crafted elements and digital design to create a unique visual experience. My creative process uncovers a brand’s individual vibe, and translates that into a compelling piece of digital art that tells their story. In other words, I sprinkle fairy dust on humble ideas, nurture your individual aesthetic and bring to life creative brands, compelling artwork and inspiring online spaces.
My clients often tell me I’m a mind reader, and offer a killer balance of wild imagination, commercial understanding, and level-headed focus – this is what I pride myself on.
I invite you to share your Neverland with me. Show me what your imagination looks like, so I can understand what is unique about you. I will craft a designer identity, or piece of digital art for your brand, so the rest of the world can get to know you too.
Welcome to Neverland.
I’m so glad you’ve arrived. Let’s journey together!
