You May Recognize Us From


I'm Irene Hardy, and I'm in charge of all things brand around here.

I started Magnoliahouse Creative in 2014 because I wanted to have more fun at work. With a background in start-up marketing, an education in analytics & award-winning experience in editorial design I combine advanced strategy with gorgeous visuals to create beautiful brands that convert.

When I'm not working, I'm the new girl in town in Columbia, SC with my husband, Zac, and poorly-behaved bichon, Max. You might catch me with a cold glass of rose on the back porch, cheering for the Texas Longhorns or cooking something delicious from scratch.



  1. Mr. Hardy, my dapper groom and emergency room doctor extraordinaire.
  2. The University of Texas at Austin, Longhorn football, and actually all football, everywhere.
  3. Peonies, garden roses, palms. I'm a sucker for beautiful blooms and lush foliage.
  4. The Mexican martini. If you're in Austin, don't even think of leaving until you've had one from Trudy's. If you're not, this recipe will do in a pinch.
  5. Max the bichon, my trusty sidekick and resident maker of mayhem.


Meet the Magnoliahouse Girl Gang



Theresa is a Maryland native currently living in Tucson, Arizona. She's all about snuggling with her dogs, Harry Potter, and trying all the food! She's a brand identity strategist and copywriter, helping business owners build the foundation for their business and articulate it so that their messaging speaks to the right audience. She also runs Creative Tribe Workshop, an event series and collaborative studio that creates opportunities for people to connect face-to-face, learn new skills and make something with their hands.



Megan Garwood is our web developer, bringing the beautiful designs Magnoliahouse creates to life. With a bachelor’s degree in Multimedia Design and Development and years of programming experience, she can tackle just about any feature request or coding challenge. On a day off, you might find her spending time with her military husband and rambunctious toddler, loving on large, furry animals, watching bad reality TV, or reading.



Hannah Browning is our amazing Junior Designer, 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.



Meg Clarke helps creative businesses be found by the right customers for the right reasons. She is a master at the art of influencing natural search results. As a former designer she hates to see a gorgeous site not get noticed by google. When she isn't curating lists of keywords, Meg is busy with her three young boys, adventurous husband, and advocating for poverty.
