Logo Design Hunter Valley
Hello hello lovelies! Nat here, over the past few months we’ve been busily working on a number of projects ranging from logo design, web design and development projects and business mentoring, and we wanted to share with you a recent logo design completed most recently.
We were contacted by the lovely Emily from Fermaculture Farm (also known as The Sacred Cookfire on Facebook) to design a new logo for the farm and their ventures…
We put together several designs and submitted them for review.
We played around with the design until we got it to something Emily was happy with.
This was our design :
The logo was them used as a part of the new facebook branding for the Fermaculture Farm Facebook page:

We used some of Emily’s images to create the profile picture and the above cover image for her social media page.
This is what it looks like once implemented on Emily’s Facebook page. Doesn’t it look great!
Hi there! My name is Natalie Crowe from NatalieCroweDesigns.com.au, I operate a website design and mentoring business. I’m based in the Hunter Valley NSW, Australia and I work with clients all over the world to build their online presence as well as grow their businesses.
I’m putting this little video together to provide an introduction to a new services or an adaptation to my existing business mentoring service we offer clients through the use of SKYPE; an application that’s available on phones and computers which you can make web calls, share files and video with a caller.
After working with a number of my clients and in my own business, it can be really difficult to separate what is just business and what is life, as a self employed work at home parent, I understand times those “boundaries” can get pretty murky.. where one starts and stops is not always clear, through in a mix of kids, or family or just life… and then business and making a living.. It can definitely be a juggling act…
The “business mentoring” service on offer usually encapsulate all of that and more… Whilst those things aren’t business they still impact you.. and they are still a part of your life… I aim to provide you with a support service to move you forward in your business goals, but acknowledge that there is going to be “life” adventures along the way…
My aim is to utilise the wide skill-set I have to help get you from where you are to where you want to be.
I’m a 29 year old work at home parent, I have my beautiful 8 year old daughter full-time. I started my 1 month before she was born. So believe me when I say I can relate to what it’s like raising a family and building a business from scratch.
My Hunter Valley Based Businesses:
I now own a couple of different faucets of my business, I have my two service businesses which offer website design and mentoring and I operate another product based business (Natalie Crowe Designs Crystals) 6 months of the year which sells crystals – semi precious stones and gifts, online and through local markets in the Cessnock and Hunter Valley area..
My Skills and Knowledge:
I have completed a bunch of courses in relation to business management and personal development courses, I studied youth work through TAFE as well website design and development diploma.
I have a great deal of knowledge in regards to setting up businesses online, including social media, search engine optimisation, marketing, branding etc.
I offer also training and tutorials on how to use the technology we setup as well as custom training tailored around your needs – so for example you’ve got an existing website and you need to learn how to use it. Natalie Crowe Designs offers one on one Skype sessions to do this.
My aim is to be of service. Helping you work out what you want and how to get there is a passion of mine. I love problem solving and helping my clients do more than just get online..
- From small business coaching,
- business planning,
- Personal Development,
- streamlining business processes,
- clarifying visions,
- goal setting
- implementation of action plans
- and so much more.
I’m your girl!
You are not alone in business!
The idea that no matter what stage of business you are in, sometimes you just need a sounding board, some guidance accountability and some help to get your ideas out of your head and help you implement them.
From the words of my existing clients – some call it “hand holding” – others say they “no longer have to go it alone”. It can be such a relief knowing that when you get stuck you can pick up the phone or send a message and say HELLLLLP I’m stuck.. and we can work through it.
Whilst I don’t pretend to have all the answers, I do have a passion for helping people, a keen sense of direction and knowledge on a wide range of topics… so changes are if I don’t personally have the answer I will direct you to local resources that do.. Just having that sounding board there is such a safety at times and often we just need time to process in order to find a solution.
So how does this down to earth mentoring work?
You could be anywhere in the world, We jump on skype and have chat about what’s happening for you.
I’ve setup three session sets of:
- 60 minute
- 90 minute
- & 120 minute sessions
These can be booked in individually on a week to week arrangement or booking in advance on a 3 and 6 weekly sessions plan will receive plan bonuses* .
Session prices start from $66 for a 60 minute session, $99 for a 90 minute session and $132 for 120 minute session.
We now also have payment plans setup – and can accept VISA, MASTERCARD and/or PayPal as methods of payment.
For each session, I encourage you to take some time before your session, to make a list of things that are coming up for you or that you’d like work on.
During your session we’ll work out the best direction moving forward for you:
You may like support and mentoring on:
- Personal Development or business issues
- Web or technical support – I can work with you to complete various tasks, that you’d like to do – setup your some sort of form, problem solve an error or edit your website.
- One on one training and tutorials; teaching you how to complete various tasks.
Being in business especially working from home can be very isolating. If you’ve got kids at home it can be even more challenging. So to have that personalized connection and support each week and that extra time set aside for YOU – it can be so empowering.
I’m here to help, and I am keen to work with anyone who’s interested in the wide range of skills I offer.
As mentioned above, my rates start at $66.00 for an hourly session however I’m offering FREE 30 minute Skype sessions to 5 individuals who would like to get started.

Hey lovely people,
Today I felt the need to break out the camera and put a name to the face of NCD.. All be it a very low res – probably should have brushed my hairstyle photo it was more to say Hey there! The world needs what you offer – so take care of yourself. Self care is so important!
Below is the post I shared on Facebook Today that at the time was more of an outward reminder and a recap not only for me but for you guys to remember you’re only human we all get caught up sometimes working in our businesses and forget to look after ourselves and work ON our businesses.
For me that realisation came when it’s been almost 8 weeks since I have shared about what we’re working on here at NCD Headquarters, the logo designs, the web design work and much more…
I’m in the midst of getting it all sorted out and getting the portfolio updated and blog posts written to share some of the amazing businesses we’ve been working with and what we’ve been doing over the last few months.
We will be looking to take on some new client projects in the coming weeks so if you’re interested in getting a website, looking to improve your search engine ranking or interested in setting up paid advertising we’ll be offering more of these services in the coming weeks.
Check out the Facebook post below – there’s some real insights!
Let us know your thoughts! 🙂
