About GDMMH

Good Design Makes Me Happy is currently on a hiatus. We will hopefully be back and better than ever in 2018. Thank you for your continued support - Hannah/


Good Design Makes Me Happy started in 2009 as an inspiration journal for graphic designer Hannah Dollery. The blog now has a growing readership and has become a daily read for many people.

Hannah graduated from Massey University in Wellington, New Zealand with a first class honours degree in Graphic Design, and after a few years in an agency there, made the move across the pond to London, UK. Hannah was lucky enough to be part of the team at Construct London, where she learnt a lot about the art of luxury branding, and then took the role of Design Director at a small north London creative agency. She then made the decision to come back to New Zealand for the family and lifestyle, and spent time learning about textiles and the fashion industry whilst at Trelise Cooper. Hannah has now gone back to the studio side of design, and is currently a Senior Graphic Designer at Creature, Wellington.

    Stuart here from Inkbot Design.

    Just wanted to let you know I’d published my list of the top 100 Design Blogs this year and you were on it!

    Probably doesn’t mean much to you, but congratulations anyway, I totally love your blog!

    This is basically just a heads-up, but if you’d share it to your followers I’d be even more grateful :)

  8. Hello,

    My name is Tanya and I work as an Emarketing manager.
    I just read some of your articles on gooddesignmakesmehappy.com and have found them very informative and helpful.
    We would like to make you a proposal which consists of placing our sponsored post with dofollow link on your website. I guess our information might be of great interest for your readers.
    I would be glad to know whether you can accept it and what are your prices for such kind of advertising?
    I look forward to receiving your reply and wish you the very best.

    Kind regards,
    Tanya
