About May Smith Media
Current Base: Bali, Indonesia.
The idea for May Smith Media was born whilst Jade and Blanaid were travelling and fell in love with the world around them. Through the people they met and the adventures they embarked on, this ignited and fuelled their passion for helping others.
With Jade's phenomenal design skills and Blanaid’s love for marketing, they opened the doors of May Smith Media so that they could work with business owners around the world to help them get their business the love and recognition it deserves.
Through trial and error, and some split testing, the two ladies really discovered the industry that they loved to serve - coaches and personal brands. Today Jade and Blanaid, along with their team, absolutely thrive by working with clients who they believe in and share their drive and passion for their own business.
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.
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.
