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.
WHAT IRENE LOVES
- Mr. Hardy, my dapper groom and emergency room doctor extraordinaire.
- The University of Texas at Austin, Longhorn football, and actually all football, everywhere.
- Peonies, garden roses, palms. I'm a sucker for beautiful blooms and lush foliage.
- 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.
- Max the bichon, my trusty sidekick and resident maker of mayhem.
Meet the Magnoliahouse Girl Gang
Ashley Schweitzer, Senior Designer
Wife to Adam, Ashley is fluent in website design and architecture with a keen eye for detailed simplicity. Born and raised in eastern Pennsylvania, she has homegrown small town roots where hard work matters, with a strong spirit for adventure and a life mission to be “well traveled”. When she isn't designing beautiful user experiences, she can be found chasing their dog Elle around, sewing all of the things, hand making journals and finishing the day with a good cider (or two).
