Enlightening praise from past & present clients.
Creating a new brand felt like such a big task and somewhat overwhelming. Merryn made it enjoyable. She got to the heart of who we are and how we show up and deliver with our clients.
We are really happy with the results. Merryn guided us through the process in a step-by-step way, listened keenly and pushed us (in a gentle but firm way) when I needed help to make decisions.
We get such joyful smiles when handover our business cards, people love the stock, the colours, the font. The ‘With Gratitude’ and ‘Blank Cards’ are treasured by people who we send them to. Best of all, they’re printed locally on 100% recycled paper using solar power and non-toxic inks.
The best thing about working with Merryn is her design skills and talent and combination of heart and mind.
Merryn listens and makes good ideas better and delivers the results.

I like your passion and commitment to your art and the way you empowered me through the process.
I love having a cool branding kit and classy business card to utilise.
Nick Matolytsch, Digital Marketing Consultant
I’ve worked with a number of designers and brand specialists over the years in my corporate roles, but none have come close to the experience of working with Merryn at Brand Nirvana.
From the initial call where we sort of felt each other out, to the questions for the brief that pushed me to articulate what Inspiring a Difference was all about in a way that I hadn’t yet done, through to our conversations about the designs, and then working through to a final design, Merryn was an absolute delight to work with.
She just “got” me and my vision, and was able to help me articulate it in a powerful, concise and energising way.
As much as it was challenging at times to dig deep and answer some of her questions, it was also a profound experience which delivered for me more than just a brand visual, but the beginning of a strong, feminine, empowered brand voice.
Jodie Preiss, Inspiring a Difference
Starting work on a creative brief is always a bit nerve-wracking. It’s natural to worry about things such as will the designer understand the brief? Will she ‘get’ my brand? Does she know what I’m trying to achieve?
However, from the moment we first spoke on the phone, I was confident that Merryn was the right person to trust with creating a new visual brand for Dream.Believe.Create.
It was clear that we had many shared values, and that Merryn immediately understood I wanted a visual brand that reflected Dream.Believe.Create’ authenticity and passion for helping women who are starting their own businesses.
Kathryn Edwards, Dream Believe Create
I absolutely LOVE working with Merryn – it’s like she has some kind of supersonic magical intuition, which she uses to get into your brain and heart.
This allows her to totally understand your vision and purpose, and then transform it into a work of art (“brand”) that can be shared with the world. I utterly trust every decision and suggestion she has made.
She is such a special, down to earth, intelligent, and warm being, who is incredibly talented, and such an inspiration. I am so grateful that our paths crossed!
Nancy Bryla, The Light Lawyer
I had no hesitation in working with you. I knew that if I was going to work with anyone, then it would probably be with you! Since we started working together I obtained clarity around why I do what I do, what the ‘vibe’ or feel of my brand is and brought it to life.
I really liked your enthusiasm and genuine communication style. I felt in safe hands, as I felt quite vulnerable reaching out for brand help when I know I would have to “dig deep” to really get real about what I was doing in my business, and where I wanted to take it. You were also quick and efficient, which I really needed.
I recommend you and your services to anyone who genuinely wishes to create a visible reflection of their own business desires in a beautiful way. You are clear on the process, committed to quality and you expect the process to be a two way street. You are a great communicator, professional and lovely to chat to. You are a supportive and encouraging person.
Jeanette White, Wise Women Ride
The process of getting a logo and business card was something that I thought was going to be hard, but Merryn at Brand Nirvana made it so much easier than I ever expected.
Her questions really got me thinking about what my business was all about and what message I wanted to send to my potential clients. When Merryn presented the brand to me she really nailed my brief, and created a professional logo that strongly resonated with me and what I want to achieve in my coaching practice.
What I like best about the end product is how clean it is, the colouring and the way it is laid out. It reflects my approach to business – professional, warm and aspirational.
Merryn has been so great to work with and I was very impressed with how quickly my requests were responded to and the high quality of the work produced.
I would highly recommend Brand Nirvana to anyone wanting to work with someone who has the unique ability to truly listen then create a product that reflects exactly what you have asked for.
Vanessa Medling, Inspiring Success
Merryn assisted in beautifully bringing to life my passion project, Sensual Seed. Merryn has been the ‘go to’ person for branding, graphic design, web design and marketing. I love everything she creates.
It has been such a pleasure working with someone who strives for excellence and is willing to go the extra mile. Her human centred approach to working is evident.
I recommend Merryn to anyone who desires personalised, professional service. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done.
Christine Ford, Sensual Seed
When I decided to launch my new interior styling + home organisation business in East Gippsland; I knew that Merryn was going to be the design + branding specialist who would deliver the business brand image I wanted.
One which would communicate visually in an instant that I am on trend, approachable, friendly and creative.
Merryn was able to respond to and interpret my visual and emotional ideas quickly. She beautifully translated my hand painted image and colour scheme into the digital world, and produced a business identity which I am proud to have.
I recommend Merryn to anyone needing to develop a new brand or re-develop an existing brand, as Merryn truly understand the important role that branding plays to a business’ success.

Like many businesses the Social Executive® was established with a logo, website and multiple social media profiles – then we got busy. Because our energy went into developing content and engaging with the social media networks that are at the heart of everything we do, our visual brand got a little neglected. So last year we decided to do something about it, putting our brand in the tender care of Merryn Padgett.
What we loved is how Merryn got under the skin of the brand – who’s behind it, what drives them – and that reflects in the depth and confidence of her design. She developed a signature style and the collateral that allows us to implement a beautiful, clean and consistent image on and offline.
Merryn has a wonderful way of providing strong creative direction and advice while listening and responding actively to the needs of a client. On a practical level she meets deadlines and provides high quality, finished files. I highly recommend her.
Dionne Lew, CEO, The Social Executive®
Having worked with Merryn before, we had no hesitations in working with her again to branding our new chiropractic studio. Working with Merryn means knowing that someone comes close to caring about your brand as much as you do.
Not only do we have an amazing brand, style guide and all the components to present our brand in its best light to the rest of the world, we’ve worked with someone who understands our vision and supports what we do – you can’t buy that sort of service!
We would highly recommend Merryn to anyone who is looking for a design and branding service of the highest quality that has more way more soul and substance than the average crowd source job. We recommend Merryn’s services to people who want to start (or refresh) their brand on the best foot.
Limiting yourself to consultants who are based in Melbourne is to your detriment; find gold in Gippsland via the magic of the internet.

Merryn is a diamond designer and every facet is fabulous!
She creates this amazing design incubator, digs through all your odd mis-matched bits and pieces of ideas, thoughts, feelings and fluff until she finds the rough nuggets.
Then she nurtures, nudges, nourishes and before you know it, there is this amazing branding diamond born, polished, sparkling and exactly what you need.
You really feel her passion for your idea and at the end of the process it’s hard to tell who is more excited!
