Irene Hardy, Owner & Creative Director
My background is quite different from many others in the field, and I truly believe it informs everything I do in my practice. I don’t have a design degree – in fact I’m a huge nerd. I graduated in the top 4% of my class from The University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Economics and have a background in corporate marketing. But my heart is the design world. I got my start working in the publication world, both in the capacity of a designer and an editor, which is where I learned the truth that great design enhances and shows off your content – instead of decorating it.
Design philosophy aside, I love deep belly laughs and college football. I live in Columbia, South Carolina with the loves of my life – a 6’1″ emergency room resident, and a 9lb, poorly behaved bichon, Max. I’m a native Californian, sworn Texan and current Carolinan. I’m addicted to Lululemon, Kate Spade and anything copper or gold and have a deep, deep obsession with paper.

Hannah Browning is our amazing in-studio Junior Designer, so she’ll be helping us out behind the scenes with all kinds of gorgeousness. She grew up deep in the heart of Texas showing livestock and is currently a media strategies and design student at Texas Tech. When she’s not busy loving on our clients, making design magic happen in Illustrator or pinning to the gorgeous Magnoliahouse Pinterest boards, she loves fine art photography, spending time with her sorority sisters (go theta!) and squeezing in a little netflix from time to time.
