A brief history:
Meet our founder, Lauren

Feeding me coffee and chocolate will earn you a toothy grin and loads of good karma!

A little bit about me and DigiDala.

I bring over a decade of success in the competitive world of graphic design and advertising.

Driven by a decade of success in graphic design and advertising, I earned my diploma in Multimedia Design in 2003. Recognising the shift to digital, I expanded my expertise with qualifications in Digital Marketing in 2013 and Marketing Management in 2018.

My proactive and positive approach, combined with a strong work ethic, ensures project success through meticulous planning and constant prioritisation. Simply put, what's best for my clients is what drives me.
