Welcome... in a nutshell
Hiya, I'm Heather Pierpoint – founder of Headfudge Design and the one that brings the design magic. I love making my clients say "WOW!" when they experience 'the Headfudge effect* – expert branding, graphic design & web design, creating the impact, identity & individuality that your business deserves, with a healthy dollop of laughter, friendly service, awesome design (of course), oodles of experience and even a little mind reading thrown in^.
*Client response WOW-factor: current success rate approximately 99%, by the way... just saying :)
^ It has been known for my clients to say that I read their mind... nailing design concepts on the head 1st time!
With 20 years experience in the industry and running Headfudge Design for over 12 years, it's safe to say, I know my stuff. I've worked with all size and shaped clients over the years, from mahoosive companies such as P&O Cruises, Princess Cruises and NHS, down to teeny start-ups and established SMB's.
From creative & expressive branding for MasterChef Winner, Shelina Permalloo's restaurant, Lakaz Maman, to chunky chip thick brand guidelines, annual reports and websites for big corporates and global clients – whatever type of design work, we'll produce outstanding results, giving your company the creative boost and impact it needs. Even if you don't know you need it yet, trust me you do :)
It can be quite overwhelming knowing where to start looking for the right design company for your project. As well as choosing the right person for the job, based on their design style, experience, skills, knowledge, speed, customer service and personality to suit your business (that would be me), having a realistic budget in mind will help narrow down your shortlist.
As well as providing bespoke quotes for any design project you require, we also now offer these simple, easy peasy design packages, created especially for start-ups and SMB's, providing everything you need to get going in one tidy package.
easy peasy, lemon squeezy !

Meet the team
HEATHER PIERPOINT - Owner & Managing Director
Hi, I'm Heather (aka Hev) – thanks for taking a moment to check out Headfudge Design...
I started up on my own back in 2007, after 8 years in the industry working for other people and a defining backpacking trip to OZ & New Zealand presented me with that moment of clarity I needed to take a leap of faith to be my own boss. 12 years on and I've not looked back! I'm a professional Graphic Designer, with a hawk eye for detail, an innate ability to read client's visions, and am pretty nifty at this design stuff. I'm a true free-spirit, driven, passionate about all things creative, and have the loudest laugh in Hampshire!
My 5 year old daughter, Sienna (my mini-me artist in the making!) and Golden Retriever, Bella, are both a big part of my team and are the driving force behind the business. When not working, I love being in the great outdoors – immersed in nature, by the coast and in the New Forest as much as possible. SUP, kayaking, dog walks, live music, having adventures with Sienna and spending time with family and friends.
Through hard work, passion, personality and top customer service, I've built an amazing client base over the years, with over 80% of my work coming from word of mouth. I'm very proud to have built such a fantastic reputation and loyal client following, and am constantly moving forward with the waves of design.
As well as continuing with our corporate client work, I've also 'niched out' to focus on clients associated with my main passions - the Coast and New Forest. In particular, working with local SMB's and start-ups, as I get a huge buzz from helping to create a strong, memorable and effective brand for their business, product, shop or restaurant.
I love being part of the whole journey, from designing the new logo, then implementing it consistently across the board - from website, printed material, social media and anything else in between.
STEVE HART - Web Developer
Steve is our long standing and awesome web developer who is our go to for all bespoke build websites. We've worked together for over 10 years and make a great strong team, when fusing our design skills with his development expertise.
Steve also runs his own gig, and not just in website design! - he's the drummer in a Southampton based band called The Stayawakes. He's not your usual developer - he has a fantastic designers eye, meaning the final build is guaranteed to look pixel perfect to the design files supplied! (I know, right, a rare species!) Steve has completed numerous bespoke build websites for us over the years and always gets the thumbs up from our clients.
SIENNA - Hev's Boss :)
So Heather *thinks* she's her own boss, but actually this little monkey seems to play a good game of boss girl! Between Sienna & Bella, Heather sometimes feels 3rd in the pecking order!
Sienna LOVES being part of the team and proudly tells all her friends that 'Mummy owns Headfudge'. She's been known jump onto my chair and take over my mac with Netflix, draw cartoons all over my white board and pinch the Headfudge fudge to dish out to the others in the office... don't know where she gets her cheek from!
BELLA - Studio Dog
Bella is Heather's 7 year old Golden Retriever who, when not out with her pack of buddies bombing around the New Forest for hours getting as muddy and wet as possible, is faithfully by her side at her Mac. She is very good for stress relief when the big deadlines hit and gets a lot of fuss and attention... she knows she is a beautiful girl and gets spoilt rotten!
Bella has an incredibly defiant streak however, when it comes to water... lake, sea, sewage pond, deep dirty mud... you name it, she will NOT come out! Many hours have been spent frustratingly attempting to entice her out, with many a times ending in a very wet, cold unhappy mum! Little bugger :)
DESIGN FUSED WITH A PASSION FOR COAST, FOREST & TRAVEL
‘Somehow Headfudge have the ability to get inside your head, and more than just turning your thoughts into great design, they also take your thoughts further. The magic of this process is that it happens seamlessly, because Heather and her team ask you the right questions upfront without the need for lengthy meetings. The quality and speed of output is also second to none, no matter how big or small the job is. Although I’ve worked for different companies, I keep coming back to Headfudge – they are addictive!’
