Owner + Creative Director
Lila is the founder of Oh Babushka, a design and branding studio located in Australia’s idyllic Byron Bay hinterland. She is a graphic designer, creative collaborator and visual storyteller – and she wants to hear your big ideas. Fuelled by creative energy, infectious enthusiasm and an entrepreneurial streak, Lila is passionate about good design and the role it plays in transforming an idea into a brand.
Lila’s business-savvy design work connects with audiences because it is equal parts beautiful and meaningful. By seeking out new, exciting and often playful ways to tell stories through design, she develops brands laden with personality as well as purpose. Her career has taken her from art director of an Australian pop culture magazine to launching her own branding studio, where she now works with boutique hospitality, design and lifestyle brands. She collaborates with each client to truly understand the intention behind their business, and then artfully transforms the resulting mix of ideas, dreams and values into a compelling brand identity.
At Oh Babushka, Lila has developed brand concepts from the ground up, brought fresh life to existing businesses and launched her own range of stationery. Most recently she founded Paradiso (in partnership with Beck Marshall, Founder and Editor of the new story). The publication is a creative street press magazine based in Byron Bay, Australia, and is an editorial mix of food, fashion, lifestyle, the arts and travel, celebrating creative people and places, locally and internationally.
Through every project she undertakes, Lila is dedicated to making the world a more beautiful and meaningful place.
