Where has the time gone?! MadebyMint started life as Mint Marketing, a one woman band way back in 2000, providing graphic design and project management services to local businesses.
Today, we are a diverse creative & digital studio, home to a team of 6 whose wide ranging talents include design (web and print), programming, branding, email marketing, illustration, customer service and social media. At MadebyMint we continue to enjoy working with a diverse range of clients, from travel companies to race courses, wine growers to property developers and wholesalers to festival organisers. Our endeavours include logos, web design, printed brochure, iPad / Kindle ebooks & ebrochures, email marketing, content management, billboards, vehicle livery and just about everything creative and digital in between!
Since day one we've been based in the Bryantang countryside of Ballynure, just 15 miles from Belfast. It's the fresh air, plethora of free parking and absence of traffic jams that keep us chipper and creative. We still like our mod cons though, so if you call to see us, we'll kickstart the Gaggia and get the fresh coffee on.
Meet the Team
- Suzanne Woodside
- Creative Director
As the founder of MadebyMint, Suzanne finds it hard to accept it all started over 10 years, mainly due to implications this has on her age.
Having started her career in NYC with local textile manufacturer Ulster Weavers, Suzanne returned to NI determined to forge a career in the Creative Industry, subsequently starting MadebyMint in 2000. When not nurturing our loyal customer base Suzanne can be found directing numerous projects and being an all-round fab boss (she insisted on the last bit).
- Natalie Johnston
- Studio Manager
After studying for 6 years in Belfast and overseas, Natalie is a fully qualified Senior Graphic Designer, having 10 years experience in the design industry as both a Designer and a Business Owner. Nat is known to be a real 'graphics head' with a quirky, warm, enthusiastic personality, always eager to create an engaging relationship with her clients to make sure they come back for more. She can handle projects from briefing to delivery, making sure the client gets the perfect service along the way.
Nat adores great design, animals, cars, movies, visiting new places and is of course a Mac geek!
- Marie-therese McNicholl
- Web Designer
When Marie-therese isn’t following hurling & camogie matches around the country she can usually be found coding away in a corner with a piece of chocolate never that far away. As a First Class Graduate of BSc Interactive Multimedia Design in 2005 at UUJ, Designing and Front End Coding Websites for our various clients is Marie-therese’s forte. She is passionate about honing the End Users’ Experience on all our websites and with great design, its this combination with little delights which will make your website stand out from the next.
- Martin McCarry
- Web Developer
Martin graduated University with a degree in Accountancy, which was great, except for the fact he didn't want a career in it. Having dabbled in code and programming, he soon gave it his full attention and was delighted to discover that, not only did he enjoy it, but he had a natural flare for this tricky discipline.
As a natural born problem solver Martin is a highly qualified, progressive programmer with a wide skill base and vocational appreciation of the industry. We keep throwing things at him and he keeps making them work!
- Andy McClelland
- Graphic & Web Designer
Andy might be the new kid at MadebyMint but with over 6 years experience in the design industry he has finally learned to colour within the lines. When he’s not colouring in for a living he can normally be found lazing about watching TV or on a rare occasion can be found on the football pitch.
Andy stepped into the world of design primarily as a print designer but after some dabbling in web, he fell head first into the scary world of front end coding.
What does he want to be when he’s older? The short answer... Taller!
