Gemma sits in front of the That's Her Business studio wall mural. The mural reads: "Be bossy, loud, bubbly and talkative. Be emotional, intense and disruptive. Be salesy. Show off. Be ambitious. Be all the things they label as too much. You get to be whoever you the f*ck you want. That's your business. @thatsherbusiness"

Welcome to the Collective

We’re the business owners getting together to create standout branding and freelance web design in Manchester and the North West… that gets you seen. Because we know how important it is for your message to be heard. So let’s help you turn the volume up!

Looking for freelance web design in Manchester?

You’re in the right place. (Hurrah!)

Maybe right now you’re craving total confidence in how your business looks to potential clients, but you have no idea where to start? And you certainly don’t have time to keep going down the Google rabbit hole to figure out how to do it all yourself…. Nevermind the skills or expertise to have it looking exactly how you want it?

Ugh, we hear you.

It’s stressful, it’s overwhelming, and it’s stopping you from running the business of your dreams. The business you pour your heart and soul into every single day. The business that deserves to be out there in the world with branding that sings its socks off.

It’s time to create your masterpiece!

We won the Back Her Business Silver Award for our crowdfunding campaign, Empowering Women In Business in 2020, were accepted into the top 100 businesses in the UK by #SmallBiz100, anddd our collective effort won us the IPSE Freelancer Collaboration Award in 2021 for our signature offering: Brimful of Branding™.

Why That's Her Business?

As a collective, our services cost the same as they would if you worked with each of us individually, but you get the bonus of collaboration and communication – not to mention people who LOVE working together! The best part is you’ll work with someone who seriously knows their stuff in each area of your project and we’ll all sing from the same song sheet to create a banging, branding package.


We know what it feels like to wear all the hats in your business but not actually get anywhere. Our service is built around helping you feel confident being yourself in business and attracting clients you love, so you can sit back and crack on with what you do best.


Imagine investing your time and money in professional branding, only to undo all the hard work with a glitchy DIY website, meh-level stock images, and words that sound blah… No more! Our branding and web design packages mean you get EVERYTHING you need and a website that works so you can shine bright like a diamond.

Manchester based

We work remotely across Manchester and the North West for businesses based anywhere in the world. The way we work means our fees don’t need to cover fancy office buildings and team away days. It’s just us and our Northern charm, and we can’t wait to welcome you into our girl gang (band).
