The Miss Bold Story

Back in 2013, Fiona was looking for a new direction. She didn’t want to return to uni, and she didn’t want to get a dead-end job. So instead she decided to splash the family’s savings on a laser engraver. As you do.

Having grown up in the country, and with a deep love of all things nature, Fiona longed to do something creative. To design and craft meaningful wooden items. To take raw lumps of wood and turn them into something beautiful.

And so six months later, Miss Bold Design was born in a not-too-glamorous garage with no heating and a leaking roof (right over the laser engraver). There was no room for storage, so all her beautiful creations ended up piled on the kitchen table.

In summary, it was vaguely organised chaos. It also meant zero division between work and business, late nights and STRESS!

Since then Miss Bold has moved to slightly more salubrious premises (an airy new warehouse), but the spirit of the business remains the same.

Fiona is sticking to her core values: “We’re not about mass-producing products. We’re focused on crafting unique gifts to be treasured forever.”

Oh, and now Miss Bold Design is not a one-woman-band – so let’s introduce the rest of the team.

Fiona HolmesChief Creative Beast

I get the biggest thrill from bringing my customer’s ideas to life, whether it’s crafting a personalised wedding board or engraving a special message for a much-loved mum.

My days are spent finalising designs, chatting with customers and, of course, engraving and finishing our board butter (made by my lovely mum).

No matter how busy we get, I still find time to iron every trademark calico bag and check every order that goes out. For me it’s the love that goes into the boards, the attention to detail, and the relationships we have with our customers that makes Miss Bold Design special.

Olivia SuttonCustomer Service Lady

I spent years working in the residential construction industry, and spending my waking hours exploring my love of all things creative by sewing, baking and making the occasional hat or two.

But then I realised that I could satisfy my love for architecture by watching yet another episode of Grand Designs and thought, “Hey, maybe a new career path is beckoning?”

So, I jumped at the opportunity to work with my life-long sidekick (and sister) and here I am discovering what the world of online creative business can bring.

Lolly Laser

She’s a bit old, and a little temperamental, but she’ll always be my first love. She’s semi-retired but lends a hand when we have lots of work on.

Stella Laser

She’s young, hot and well put together. Great work ethic. Little bit noisy.
