Your Creative Life, By Design
A 5-week email coaching programme.
Helping you harness the benefits of design thinking to craft a creative life you LOVE.
During this five-week guided journey, I’ll guide you in reshaping your current life – however busy, messy or off-track – so that you can include more of the creative fun that is calling you. (It’s calling you for a reason.)
Drawing from almost three decades working in design, I’ll share why Life Design is becoming one of the most popular approaches for intentional living, on your terms, aligned with your values, visions and goals.
I’ll also be incorporating all I’ve learned about the unique challenges of the creative path – what helps to make the process easier and much more fun.
Designed for creative people*
*Because we have different values and goals to mainstream definitions of success.
Would you like to learn how you can apply this inspiring
and life-changing process to your creative life,
so you can begin living your vision of creative bliss?
I’d love you to join me for this virtual coaching intensive, as I work with you 1:1 in this powerful programme of life design practices that address the unique challenges and delights of creative living.
Creating a blueprint for your happiest, healthiest, most successful, balanced and fulfilling creative life – by design.
Or if you have any questions, I would love to hear from you.
Online coaching programme includes:
5 Weeks of Focused Guidance
For over a month, I’ll be guiding you via email through the YCLBD process.
This is customised, tailor-made support – helping you design a do-able and enjoyable foundation for a creative practice that will serve you for many years to come.
Unlimited Email Access & Support
As part of the 1:1 programme, you’ll be able to email me any time – daily if you like! – with your questions, challenges and wins*.
(*I can’t wait to hear about those. 🙂 )
Access to my Skills Vault
With almost 3 decades working in the creative industry, I’ve learned A LOT.
And I love to share any insights that can help you from my experience in things like web design, creating online courses, digital marketing, SEO and email coaching.
Later in the year, the material will be available in a beautiful and organised online learning portal, for you to easily refer to and revisit as needed.
To support you after our time together, you receive complimentary access to one of my other online programmes – whichever one feels like the natural next step for you.
You receive lifetime access to the full online course version when it goes live later in the year, as well as any future upgrades and additions.

1:1 Creativity Coaching via email
“If you feel creativity is running through you but trapped inside you and you don’t know how to get it out to incorporate it into your life, take Danielle’s course.
She is absolutely amazing in guiding you to design a creative life that works for you and having fun in the process.”
I have been designing since the 1980s when I got a Fashions By Me design kit for Christmas. I was hooked! Designing outfits was so much more fun than playing with my (beautifully-dressed) Sindy dolls.
Cut to Art School, a career in design and a relentless fascination with the creative process that has led me to the work I love so much today – and I have never stopped designing.
Somewhere along the way, I began to realise that I could approach my life, my creative passions and my career as the ultimate design briefs.
And the more I envisioned, clarified, experimented, and iterated, the more I saw just how much power we have to shape the lives we want to live.
This experience was inspiring, empowering and liberating – feelings that I believe are the real gems of intentional living and life by design.
These days, my life feels more aligned with my preferences and closer to my ultimate vision and ideals, every single day.
My Creative Life, By Design
In my creative life and work, I often feel like I’ve won the career lottery.
At the end of my workdays, my norm is to feel happy, fulfilled, energised and thankful. Imagine a world where everyone felt like this at the end of the day!
This is a large part of my work these days but my first mission was to master it and establish it for myself. Now that I’m enjoying the results of that focused effort, it’s time to share what worked for me.
These are not so much strategies or actions but universal principles that can be adapted to your preferences, lifestyle and values.
Because my dream creative life will probably look much different to yours in the details, but I’ve learned that the aspects of freedom, joy of expression, contribution, pursuit of mastery, and success on your own terms are repeating themes in many creatives people’s visions of their ideal workday.
Alongside creative goals and dreams, these ideas can be applied to all aspects of life. I also use the principles of life design that I’ve learned, developed and experimented with for many years and apply them in areas such as;
Career By Design
Taking an intentional design approach to my career was where my Life Design journey began almost 10 years ago – and it’s in this area where I’ve seen some of the most miraculous and life-changing results.
My work blend and schedule is now remarkably close to the blueprint I have developed over the years.
Home By Design
I used the processes and tools I’ll share in this programme when I was looking for my current home, and now I enjoy around 90% of the ‘Would LOVE’ items on my wish list.
(And I love that I still have some items to look forward to in the next house.)
Wealth By Design
I’m delighted by the way my financial life has been shaping up in line with my designs and intentions.
I’ve been able to cultivate a blissful foundation of creative projects, joyful service, passive income streams (aka freedom), generosity, ethical spending, and big dreams.
Health By Design
I’ve used these principles to help me implement some simple-but-effective tweaks and new habits that are supporting some pretty substantial health goals.
(Discovering that Reverse Ageing is an option was a nice side-effect!)
These are just a few areas I’ve applied the Life Design tools and techniques that I’m bursting to share with you, but you could also design your relationships, your spiritual life, your retirement, or even your legacy and purpose.
Yes, you can design your own life purpose!
(I’ve been working on designing my golden years for a while now – I call it my Luxury Wellness & Longevity Plan, and it looks fantastic! I almost can’t wait to get older. 🙂 )
Whatever is important to you, you can take an empowered role in shaping and creating it the way you’d like to live it.
And the best bit?
All this is possible, not through discipline and force, but by harnessing the often under-estimated forces of inspiration, joy, flow, ease and what I like to call ‘automagic success’.
These tools and results are available to all of us, and I would love to teach you what I’ve learned.
