Hi, I’m Elle-May!

Nice to have you here visiting my little section of the internet.

I’d love to take this opportunity to tell you a little more about who I am and what I am about.

During the day, I am the boss lady at in.cube8r gallery, a home to more than 100 Melbourne creatives at any one time & a space that combines retail & a gallery in a beautiful way. At in.cube8r, I rent cubes, shelves, clothing racks & wall spaces to local creatives so they can exhibit their work to the public without paying commissions on sales or needing to trundle down to the market each week. You can read more about in.cube8r here

At in.cube8r, I run marketing & business related workshops for small groups of creatives (free for my cube clients) on topics ranging from marketing to goal setting, planning to building websites… I’ve also run these workshops at Libraries & community centres from time to time. The workshops are designed to be short, affordable & informative, giving creatives a to-do list that they can go home & tackle on their own with all the information they need (and no sales pitch at the end).

I also work one-on-one with creatives to help them achieve their needs, sometimes this is by helping them build websites, sometimes coaching them through how to use social media, sometimes it’s helping them organise their thoughts into a cohesive plan for an exhibition or special project. This is the work which really gets me going, I LOVE working on special projects & problem solving!

I come from a background of marketing charity product, working for 10 years building websites, doing graphic design, and being in charge of implementation and innovation within the company. I’ve been responsible for marketing to hundreds of thousands of Australians and have spent countless hours researching and training myself on how to do things myself. I also have a diploma of design & a bachelor of communications (media) if you’re into that kinda thing!

On this website you’ll find posts to help you learn about aspects of marketing and running a creative business as well as information on my upcoming workshops & video tutorials outlining step-by-step how to get your creative business online.
