Helping organisations who work for wellbeing communicate the messages that matter.

Talk and things happen.
Stories get told.
Challenges get solved.
Connections are made.


Talk and new thoughts take shape.
Ideas are formed.
New ideas. Bolder ideas.


Talk and plans change.
New directions appear.
The tricky can become not so difficult.

Listening. That’s important too.
We say it’s the most important.
But it all starts with Talk.

Jess Deacon (Wondrous Wordsmith), Claire Mance (Founder and Managing Director)

Creative, strengths-based problem solvers. We help organisations working for wellbeing communicate the messages that matter to them most.

We instigate connections and partnerships in support of their work - curating delightful, strategic design and communication solutions - with a digital twist - to help these purpose-driven businesses thrive.

Claire Mance - FOUNDER AND Managing DIRECTOR

I like to talk, that is for sure. But mostly I love to listen, think deeply and get excited about purpose driven work.

My 15+ years of experience sets me up to work strategically across your business and my passion lies in crafting brand stories, creative directions and photography.

My focus on growing the business is driven by my ambition for social impact and community-based outcomes. As well as working directly with our clients, I work behind the scenes to create partnerships that allow us to support organisations working for wellbeing. Our elderly, our young people and, most importantly, for the mental wellbeing of our community.

This is why I do what I do.

Jess Deacon - Wondrous Wordsmith

Simply put, I am passionate about communication.

I am driven by an interest in human interaction through the use of language and this is what inspired me to complete a degree in Linguistics and Communications.

These days I call myself a wondrous wordsmith because I love to write! I revel in finding the right voice for brands and crafting meaningful messages that support our clients' projects and journeys.

Communication is also what I seek to achieve as a singer and performer, something I am equally passionate about, and which sees me sharing music on my own and with my bands, too.

This is why I do what I do.
