Our History...

May Smith Media began back in 2017 when co-founders Blanaid May and Jade Smith were backpacking across Asia and discovering what the world had to offer them.

Blanaid, who has a strong background in customer-focused roles, and Jade, who has designed for some of the UK’s leading brands, decided it was time to hang up their employee badges and start their own business.

Since then May Smith Media has worked with clients from all around the world, helped hundreds of business owners with their marketing, helped clients reach 6 and 7 figures in their business along with the team itself expanding globally.

The Team


Blanáid May



Hey, Blanaid here, I’m the marketing expert and co-founder of May Smith Media.

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been lucky enough to work with some passionate entrepreneurs all over the world and help take their business to the next level whilst expanding their audience and customer base.

I’m obsessed with all things digital marketing and love spending time on different social media platforms testing new methods and figuring out ways to continuously beat the ever-updating algorithms. Through experience, I have niched down to specific platforms that I absolutely love. These platforms are Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook.

I have a background in sales and always thought that was my thing until I came across digital marketing a few years ago. I quickly became obsessed and have never looked back since!

Aside from digital marketing, my other passion in life is travel! Since the age of 16, I have been quite the adventurer, especially over the past couple of years! I spent 6 months backpacking around South East Asia and I’m now currently based in Bali, which is one of my most favourite places on earth. Being able to combine my two passions in life and be able to travel the world whilst working with other passionate business owners is something I'm eternally grateful for. I truly believe that if you work hard enough you can achieve anything.

When I’m not working on client projects I’m usually driving a scooter around Bali, exploring the sites and trying new delicious foods or sunbathing on the beach whilst reading a book that has been written by someone I admire. I’m currently reading “Girl Wash Your Face” by Rachel Hollis which I highly recommend.


Jade Smith


Behance Portfolio

I’m Jade, the lead graphic designer and co-founder of May Smith Media.

I’ve been a professional graphic designer for over 8 years and have had the pleasure of working with some huge brands back in the UK such as Warburtons, Atkins, Sage, and TJ Hughes to name a few.

I’ve always loved to draw from an early age. I was (and still am) that girl who always carried pens and a notebook with me so that I could sketch on the go. When college came around, of course, I studied Art & Graphic Design, which really opened my eyes to the world of online design! I absolutely fell in love with creating illustrations so naturally, I followed this path and became a professional graphic designer.

My other passion in life apart from design is travel. In the last couple of years, I’ve been lucky enough to travel to some of the most beautiful places on earth, which has had a powerful impact on my career and definitely provided a lot of inspiration for my designs and illustrations.

The love that I have for travelling helped me to make the move from the corporate working world to running my own business remotely and getting to work with clients and brands that I love every day.

In my free time, I really enjoy photographing the beautiful places I travel too, exploring new countries, experiencing different cultures, listening to music and podcasts.

I'm extremely grateful to have travelled to so many different wonderful countries but I still have one place on my list that I'm so excited to visit one day and that is Japan! It is definitely on my goals list for 2019.

  • Jade played a key role in the rebranding of Motoring.co.uk to Regit. The site looks great and we’re already seeing huge improvements in conversions and usability of the site as a result. Diligent, and hard-working, I’d recommend to everyone.

  • I’ve worked with Jade and Blanaid on a couple of projects and always find them to be really helpful, professional and most definitely the ‘go to’ experts in their field. The value that they give their clients and audiences is second to none! I’ve just completed their ‘Linked In’ mini series and found it hugely beneficial. The videos are bite sized, practical and highly valuable! I can’t wait to sample the next mini series and also work with them some more in my business! Thank you both!

  • I recently watched Blanáid's three-part LinkedIn training. It was great! Brief and concise. I love those kinds of trainings! I've been studying social media for the past 2 1/2 years and I must say I actually picked up some valuable tips from her training. It doesn't hurt that she has a charming accent. I could listen to her talk all day!

  • May Smith Media is amazing and will make you feel like their #1 priority. The website they created for me was exactly what I wanted and am extremely pleased. It seemed like I would send an email asking for an update to my website and by the time I clicked send it was already done. May Smith Media should be your first choice for web design or social media services.

    - Founder & Digital Media Strategist at Meyer Global Media
  • I have been using LinkedIn for over 8 years and I thought I knew what I was doing until I met Blanaid and Jade, these two are amazing with tips on how to use it effectively. The person I have become in the process and the skill set I have learned connecting with the right people within the industry I work is overwhelming. I feel connected and inspired by incredible leaders who pour their soul into trainings. They have provided me with a host of educational material and strategies to find my business's ideal clients. Best choice to get coaching for Facebook and LinkedIn if you want to build a thriving business. I will highly recommend them to anyone who wants to grow their brand through Social Media.
