About

Introducing the Lumina Design House family… We’re excited to meet you. 

Lumina Design House Team

Our Story…

When Brooke and Nicole were introduced, they immediately noticed that they had a great connection and had similar experiences in common in their professional lives.

Whilst working on a design job together, they got to chat about their goals for their own individual businesses moving forward and how very much aligned they were. A trial collaboration of their services began and they worked on several projects together from branding through to website design.  These proved very successful and they knew they had something special to offer.  Their values in customer service and quality practices allowed them to form a unique partnership that they knew would enhance the delivery, outcomes and value they could provide for their clients.

Initially they worked on their brand identity and strategy. Identifying their core values and unique offerings, they brainstormed furiously to come up with their name Lumina Design House.

Coming from the Italian word ‘Luminoso’ was their adaptation ‘Lumina’, relating to their vibrancy, light energy and their ambition to ‘light up your brand’.

‘Design House’ captures their values in family and honesty and their personalised service with similarities to a feeling of being embraced by one’s own family.

Definition: luminoso. adjective. bright [adjective] shining with much light. light [adjective] having light; not dark. luminous [adjective] giving out light.

“Each of our fundamental business practices have not changed, they have instead been enhanced to offer you, our clients, a much more value rich service and comprehensive range of essential and complimentary services.”

Together with our supportive team, it is our genuine belief that personalised service and great communication is the key to successful outcomes. It is our fundamental ambition to provide the highest standards and exceed expectations whilst nurturing and supporting each individual through the process of business branding development and implementation, making each step in the journey transparent and easy to understand so that you feel confident and proud to deliver your brand to the world.

Our Friendly Team

Lumina-Design-House_About_Profile-Image_Brooke
Co-Founder

Graphic Designer | Branding Specialist

“I am driven by the entrepreneurial spirit and an ambition to create amazing brands… but first, coffee!”

A small business soul at heart, Brooke’s design ambitions led her to seek-out and study graphic design after many years operating her own cafe business and her roles in both cafe and retail management. Having skilled herself in small business management and graphic design studies, her career was reinvented in her freelance work, discovering her passion for logo and business branding design.

“A very fortunate side effect of working with entrepreneurs is building genuine relationships… I am so intrigued to know your journey’s, ideas and ambitions. I find them so inspirational and feel excited for you. By getting to know you, I am discovering and uncovering your true motivation and that’s such a privilege… being a part of your business journey fires me up and ignites my creativity”

When not busy creating brands or focusing on her son, Brooke is recycling her household soft plastics, bingeing a Netflix comedy series or ‘meditating’ (watching endless lettering/calligraphy videos on Instagram).

Co-Founder

Business Manager | Ecommerce Specialist

Driven by a curiosity of the secrets to success within the online commerce world, Paul’s journey now includes the creation of a number of popular online stores, experience from which, he now draws into launching new Ecommerce businesses for our clients.

“Ecommerce has been an exciting industry to dig my teeth into. It incorporates almost all facets of business so there’s an endless amount to learn.

Social Media Manager

“For me, social media has been the key to a world of creativity."

When he’s not flicking through Instagram, liking dog videos on Facebook, Tweeting or Pinning… Darren is spending time with his two teenage daughters and his amazing wife, learning new dances on TikTok, riding bikes, running and experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen… oh and learning French too!
