When you commission Merrie & Bright, the creative possibilities are endless.
We love projects that present a challenge, and we relish any opportunity to push creative boundaries. Specialising in bespoke physical pieces, tactile design, and all things experiential, we ensure every brief is brought to life in a creative, engaging way.
What we do
Brand Identity & Collateral
A strong visual identity ensures your brand is instantly recognisable and completely unforgettable. At Merrie & Bright, we focus on strategy and style. After getting to grips with what you and your business are all about, we translate your goals and values into compelling visuals and brand collateral guaranteed to draw customers in and set your brand apart.
Stationery for Events
From luxury product launches to press events, beautiful, personalised stationery plays a key role in the impact and shareability of your event. We love working closely with clients to create unique concepts across a wide range of materials. With extensive knowledge of modern calligraphy and other handcrafting techniques, Merrie & Bright can provide everything from Instagrammable invitations and table stationery to large signage and bespoke backdrops.
Experiential marketing brings theatre and individuality to your retail space or event. Luxury onsite brand activations and personalised experiences are our specialty. After thorough consideration of a brand’s objectives, audience demographics and logistics, we create concepts that generate attention and increase brand loyalty. With an array of creative skills and a deep understanding of material capabilities and current trends, we’re able to deliver experiences that engage audiences while representing and reinforcing your brand identity. Previous projects include live calligraphy, onsite personalised notecard writing, keepsake engraving and more.
Brand Activations & Bespoke Gifts
With the rise of PR gifting, it can be difficult to create a memorable impression that cuts through competitive noise. We take an innovative approach to connect with consumers and engage their senses. Using a variety of techniques and high-quality materials, we can produce personalised products, creative mailers and elevated gift packages that help your brand stand out in a crowded market.
Laser Cutting & Engraving
Laser cutting is a production process that allows a wide range of materials to be cut or engraved with extreme precision. The technology has numerous applications, providing a clever, contemporary way to bring your creative ideas to life. Whatever the project or brief, you can supply your own files or commission a bespoke design. From one off prototypes to large scale production runs, we guarantee style, precision and accuracy.
Workshops & Events
We are experts at delivering creative workshops to groups of all sizes, both in-person and online. Whether you want to treat your team or deliver a memorable in-store experience for customers, we can create a bespoke workshop just for you. From learning to hand letter a card to personalising gifts, the experience will leave your guests with new skills and lasting memories.
I love working with Merrie,
the help she gives on product development is invaluable to my business. I love how she always finds a way to create what I have in my head.

How We Do It
Our approach is as personal and bespoke as the products and experiences we create, but the steps outlined below should give you a rough idea of what you can expect…
Start by looking through our portfolio, but don’t worry if you can’t find what you’re looking for. We love a challenge and welcome any opportunity to put our creative skills to the test. If our approach feels like a good fit, send us an email outlining your brief. We’ll respond within 48 hours to discuss the project in more detail.
Make It Official
When you’re ready to proceed, we’ll send over a contract and invoice so you can reserve your project date with a 25% retainer. Where relevant, we’ll also provide a project timeline and access to your personal client portal.
The Deep Dive
Most projects begin with an in-depth consultation and some serious research. Working closely with you, we’ll gain as much knowledge and insight as possible, ensuring we have everything we need to bring your project to life.
Once we understand your goals, we’ll develop a unique design strategy for your project. In most cases, we’ll pitch ideas or provide several concepts for feedback and approval. Sometimes we’ll create samples, test different materials or produce a mock-up to help you visualise your design. In other words, we keep our processes flexible and responsive, so creativity and innovation can work their magic.
No two briefs are the same, but everything we do is executed beautifully. You can be confident we’ll select the best production process and materials for your project. We also understand how important it is to build a genuine connection with your audience. Whether we’re delivering an in-person event or a remote brand activation, we focus on making people feel loved, seen, noticed, and appreciated.
